Bug Description

Would it be possible to make Inscape load a markers.svg file at launch
time located in say home/.inkscape/markers, as /usr/share/inkscape/
markers/markers.svg is not marked as read/write for the user, at least on
Mac OS X?

Hence even if the user uses sudo to make the change in /usr/share, then
next time a new version is installed, he will lose his changes.

I am reasonably sure there is a place for users to put their
custom markers somewhere in $HOME as you suggest, dont have
it memorised
best bet is to ask on the user mailing list or on IRC at #inkscape

My request was more general, to ensure that the Inkscape Fink package (or
any other one eventually) has this feature, so that users
don't need to change something in /usr/share.

Maybe something like a default markers in /usr/share/inkscape/markers/,
automatically copied at first launch in HOME/.inkscape/
markers or whatever if and only if it does not exist already. And
subsequent loading will load the one in HOME if it exists, otherwise
the one in /usr/share.

This way, the default is memorized, and the customized also.
