There have been several other reports of the Nothing to do! error here, such as #52632, #55628, #55997. I don't know whether to close this as a duplicate of one of them, since I don't know if we found a solution to them so I don't know if your problem is the same.

I have wasted enough time trying to get Inscape to work on Mac, I will try something else. Such a pity!

Sorry it doesn't work for you. It works for me. Without further input from those for whom it doesn't work, it's difficult for us to fix it for you...

Unless joubfran is willing to help us debug this, I think we must close this ticket. We cannot fix something without being able to reproduce the problem.

You are welcome to close this issue. I have removed Mac Ports totally from my Mac.

You get this error when quartz's not install on the system (not checked by the port) : Inkscape doesn't find any X Server so it has nothing to do!

Just download and install it from https:/

I know it is an old thread but this may help others ready it...
