nkscape: Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor. Inkscape has capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X. Inkscape is widely 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 supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more. Inkscape runs on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows desktop computers. Let us get into the article and check out all the methods involved in the process of installing Inkscape on Linux Ubuntu, and Ubuntu-based Distros and on Debian.
