Bug Description

Binary package hint: inkscape

The fig_input.inx extension comes bundled with Inkscape and allows xfig files to be imported. However, this extension depends upon the fig2dev utility which is provided by the transfig Ubuntu package.

transfig is in the Ubuntu main repository, so I think it would be reasonable to add "Recommends: transfig" to debian/control.

Changed my mind about this... xfig imports aren't an essential component of Inkscape. Most people probably won't need them, so I think a "Suggests: " dependency should be adequate.

summary: - Please add dependency upon transfig
+ Please suggest transfig

  * debian/rules: No need to manually call intltool-update on build. This
    is now handled by dh_translations.

    offer any enhancement to Inkscape (LP: #762541)
  * debian/control: Suggest transfig to allow import of xfig files
    (LP: #668300)
  * debian/patches/02-add-shebangs-and-fix-permissions.dpatch:

    (LP: #602005):

    - share/extensions/ Install *.js using _DATA rule rather
      than _SCRIPTS rule to avoid giving executable permission
  * debian/patches/fix-fontforge-glyph-template.dpatch: Cherry-pick
