Just installed Sabayon Linux with a KDE desktop... I installed Inkscape
0.48. When I go to File --> Import... expecting to find import clip
art... not there. Question: What to do to enable it...? (I pasted
'' in the import/export preferences, didn't help).

Thanks for any advice.

this option does not exist in Inkscape 0.48.4, on Windows, for reasons
that I
cannot remember.
However it does exist in recent development builds.
I am not familiar with how upgrades are done on Linux, but try going to
to see if you can get a development version.

Thanks much Al,

I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me... (?  :))

New to Sabayon (a version of Gentoo), but not Inkscape... So I will have
to do some research.


P.,s., this is what I was going on from my first message on this here:

      Open Clip Art Library

The command File ? icon Import From Open Clip Art Library opens a search
dialog that connects to the Open Clip Art Library
<> website, a source of free clip art. The
dialog allows searching for drawings that match descriptive words.
Previews of files are shown in a window on the right side of the dialog.

Import from Open Clip Art Library dialog.
/Import From Open Clip Art Library/ dialog. An example of searching for
a butterfly is shown.

You may have to set the server name (||) in the
/Import/Export/ section of the /Inkscape Preferences
dialog. In the future, export to the library will also be supported.
