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!

I'll just stick with GIMP...
I can't seem to even USE it...

This is just terrible. When I open the application, it comes up with the regular INKscape. And how the hell am I meant to get layers on?!

Are you thinking of making Ponyscape a app for those who aren't able to use a computer?

Wouldn't that be really hard to use, though? I doubt trying to vector something with your finger on a small screen would warrant good results. :/

Is ponyscape compatible with Mavericks?
And do I need to have Inkscape installed to run Ponyscape?
liamwhite1 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
1. Yes
2. No

I don't recommend that you use the current package though, you should use mine:

What I did was merge most Ponyscape-specific features right back into Inkscape's source code and then compile it with a newer packaging method, so it will look pretty and have Inkscape (not Ponyscape) branding.
