Inskcape For Linux is a professional quality vector graphics software which runs on Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux.
It is used by design professionals and hobbyists worldwide, for creating a wide variety of graphics such as illustrations, icons, logos, diagrams, maps and web graphics.
Inkscape uses the W3C open standard SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) as its native format, and is free and open-source software.
Inkscape has sophisticated drawing tools with capabilities comparable to Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW and Xara Xtreme.
It can import and export various file formats, including SVG, AI, EPS, PDF, PS and PNG. It has a comprehensive feature set, a simple interface, multi-lingual support and is designed to be extensible; users can customize Inkscape's functionality with add-ons.
Now depending on if you want the latest version, you need to download it from the developers website, that offers both Snapd and Flatpak. Since Snap is quite outdated in Debians repository, I decided to go with Flatpak.
Version: 1.0.2 in Debian 11 repo ( LMDE5 ).
NOTE: Downloaded and installed the Windows version, but it keeps crashing on Windows10 Home Premium.
InkScape is available in both Flatpak and Snap, thus giving you a choice, like never before and to be honest, both are just as easy to install. But, it seems Flatpak is more prone to attacks.
How to install snapd:
sudo apt-get install snapd
Next you will install the Snap package, by typing the following command:
sudo snap install inkscape
Press Enter, done.
Second choice is using flatpak.
How to install via a terminal window:
sudo apt-get install flatpak
After successfully installing Flatpak !
Copy the following into the terminal window:
flatpak install flathub org.inkscape.Inkscape
Then, to start the flatpak Inkscape installation, run:
flatpak run org.inkscape.Inkscape
Install from Debians repository, also via a terminal window:
sudo apt-get install inkscape
Press Enter, done.
