Inkscape native version for OS X ML

After fighting several hours with keyboard mapping issue with inkscape 0.48 , I found the graal ;

Native ML packaging of Inkscape 

This is a Release candidate version, but I don’t face any bug. First launch is a bit long, but after, it works very well

I don’t know who to thank for this work but if he read those lines i just want to say : THANK YOU !!!!

Of course, my previous blog post on textext is still relevant with this version.

edit : link to native version updated

edit2 : add a link of the RC5 release from my Dropbox:

from my dropbox


I finally found the source of those files. It comes from the Inkscape developers forum. The thread of interest (last updated : 29 June 2014) can be found here.

    the file seems to be gone from Rapidshare by now. Can you post a new link to it?

    Thanks in advance!

  3. You are actually my hero for finding this. I’ve been looking for this ever since I got my first Macbook 4 years ago. Any idea who made this?

    Rapidshare seems to have it still, but for some reason the download isn’t working anymore (in April 2014). Does anyone have this file anymore? And it would be even better to get some clue who made this, and where is the XCode project for it, so we could get newer versions made.

    Too bad all the symbols in the buttons are missing when trying this version. A native version would be really great

    Hi, Nicola!
    are you thinking of a native version compatible with Yosemite?
    I would thank you a lot!!

    Bonjour, rapidshare renvoie une erreur ! il est impossible de le télécharger.
    Serait-il possible de ravoir la dernière version native mac os X sur un support ou on peut le télécharger.

  11. Works for me so far on Yosemite! (I used one of your edited links)

    Btw, is there a git repository you’re committing to?

    comme indiqué sur le site de inkscape, le lien direct vers le fichier original est une bonne chose : tous les details sont sur le site de inkscape en cherchant la branche osxmenu

    …we need a new version compatible with El Capitan OSX. How when ?
