Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 4, 2013, 7:50 PM
Hi Everypony!!

The patched version of Ponyscape 0.4 is here!!  Currently, the Windows, 64-bit Linux, Mac OS X 10.6,  10.7, and 10.8 packages are available!  The Linux package was built on Linux Mint 14, but it should work on most up-to-date distributions.  On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe.  On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i <filename>" or by using a GUI package installer of your choice.  On Mac OS X, open the dmg package, drag to the Applications folder, and launch from your Applications folder.  For this patch version, I revamped the Linux package so that everything is now installed in a separate directory from Inkscape and you now run "ponyscape" instead of "inkscape" from a terminal.  Additionally I revamped the Mac OS package so that it's now called (and I tweaked it a bit so it runs smoother).

You can get the binary packages here (md5's are provided for checksumming):

Alternatively, you can download the entire source code and compile from scratch.  I can confirm that compiling works on Windows and Linux, the Mac OS build requires some tweaking but should work if you replace the files in /packaging/macosx with the files found here:… .  Compilation instructions can be found on Inkscape's wiki ( [link] ).

Here's what's included in this patched release:

:bulletblue: Fixed swatch button in Fill & Stroke Dialog

:bulletblue: Increased size of the swatch bar at the bottom

:bulletblue: Fixed some random swatch setting issues (thanks to tgolyi for a patch which helped with this!)

:bulletblue: Fixed "Edit path on canvas" in Path-Effects dialog (patch by tgolyi, big thanks to him!)

:bulletblue: Improved swatch efficiency!!

:bulletblue: Included experimental path-effects in the Linux build

And now a quick legal disclosure (only because I have to :p).  This software is provided as-is and without any warranty.  Misuse of this software or use of this software in an illegal nature is in no way the fault of the developer or the upstream Inkscape development team.  The developers are not responsible for any loss or damages that may occur while using the software.  This software is licensed under the GPL version 2.0, a copy of which will be provided upon request.  Inkscape itself is licensed under the GPL, and is free and open-source software, meaning I am allowed to modify and redistribute the source code and/or binaries.

I hope this patched release will fix any issues you guys may have been having from upgrading to 0.4!  I will be working on more bugfixes and improvements for 0.5, so if anyone has any feature suggestions, feel free to contact me!

Should the Mac versions work on v10.10 (Yosemite)?

So I'm an incredibly huge idiot and when I download the file it just opens as a bunch of scripts or whatever in wordpad. Is that supposed to happen or did I do something wrong? .o.

Is there a 0.5 version of this?

I know it says that it's for 64-bit Linux..
But I'm gonna try it on my 32-bit Ubuntu derivative anyway!
I doubt it's gonna work, but whatever =D

Yup! didn't work xD
Oh how I wish this laptop would have been good enough to run a 64-bit OS

strange, I upgrade my laptop to Yosmite and when I open up ponyscape they said that i need to install Java. Is that possible?

I use Windows 8.1 on Surface Pro 3 and have tried downloading this, but it just doesn't work. Any tips? I have tried EVERY zip advice, downloaded 7zip and NOTHING. This isn't making any sense.

How close were you?
  1. You downloaded the Windows 7z archive uncorrupted, and its MD5 is indeed f893672cf43313184b174b88bea3ee96.
  2. You downloaded a version of 7-zip for Windows.
  3. You installed 7-zip.
  4. You opened 7-zip and used it to decompress ponyscape_0.4_patched.7z
  5. You entered the extracted directory and ran ponyscape.exe.

Is it supposed to show up as Inkscape or Ponyscape? I THINK I did it right, but can't be sure
liamwhite1 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The filename is ponyscape.exe.

If that doesn't tip you off that the extraction worked, check the About screen (Help→About).
