According to the error messages you're getting, you need to
install Image::Magick. You can do this via `cpan -i
Image::Magick` or through your distro's normal installation
purposes.

However, it's probably not worth the effort. Inkscape only
loads Illustrator files of version 7 or earlier, and even
then the import is imperfect and you can expect some
features to be lost.

A better solution is to load the file into Scribus and save
as SVG, then load it into Inkscape.
