If you use sodipodi or any vector graphics programs, check out inkscape. It's really nice. To add it to BLAG10000:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install inkscape


More info @ http://www.inkscape.org/

You can get the libs you need for inkscape from Dag. It also needs perl-GD, perl-GD-SVG, & perl-SVG.

do i have to manually go and get the above from dag? my apt sources have a listing for dag, but its saying unmet dependencies of the perl stuff:

Code:
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
 
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
 
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  inkscape: Depends: perl(SVG)
E: Broken packages

I added inkscape and it's needed RPMs to the repository for 9000 as well. So you can just:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install inkscape


under 900x and it will install inkscape. I haven't tested it yet, so let me know how it goes.

For some reason the "extras" repository isn't enabled. Add that one and you should get what you need.

Ok. Disable all the repositories except the blag ones. I think you may be getting a different inkscape or perl-GD or something.

The blag9000 perl-GD requires gd 1.8, which is installed on your system already. If it's requiring gd 2.0, that's for FC1/BLAG10000. Some other repository must be triggering that.

Only real DTP I know of is scribus. I'm not sure if it has kerning or not. I'll see if I can get Dag to do a newer version for when i crank out 10001. The scribus developers say that their most recent development branch release is actually more stable, better, etc than their "stable" release. It has a pile more features too, perhaps kerning. http://www.scribus.org methinks.

If you really dig fonts, check out pfaedit too (soon to be called fontforge in blag). It's pretty heavy but mongo powerful.

Later,

-Jeff
