inkscape @0.92.2_2+x11: Nothing to do

Reported by: jwflutterby Owned by: dbevans (David B. Evans)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.4.2
Keywords: Cc:
Port: inkscape


Completely new to MacPorts I'm trying to run Inkscape. I followed the instructions from (new install of Xcode 9.2 from Apple Dev site, install of Command_Line_Tools_macOS_10.13_for_Xcode_9.2, install of MacPorts-2.4.2-10.13-HighSierra.pkg) and everything looked like it went ok. Followed the Inkscape instructions and entered sudo port install inkscape at the Terminal prompt and everything looked like it went ok. Try typing inkscape at the Terminal prompt and get 'Nothing to do'... It is installed because I can type port installed inkscape and port location inkscape and get results back, just not sure what else I need to do to actually run the silly program... Mac OS 10.13.1...

Typing inkscape at the terminal should be all you need to do to launch X11 and then inkscape.

Check the other open inkscape tickets, such as #52632; maybe they are relevant.

I reviewed that ticket before opening mine. It isn't crashing, it is simply responding with "nothing to do" when I type inkscape at the terminal prompt. One person mentioned the same issue in that ticket but I didn't see a resolution, others that were experiencing crashes due to language settings had a resolution but nothing about this issue...
