It all started with this:
alex@Megabombus:~$ inkscape dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libpng15.15.dylib Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/inkscape Reason: image not found Trace/BPT trap: 5
It seemed I had 1.5 and 1.6 in the Homebrew Cellar, but only 1.6 was installed. I tried to have both libraries linked but missed this hint:
ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/libpng/1.5.18/lib/libpng15.15.dylib /usr/local/lib/libpng15.15.dylib
(It would have been 1.5.17 in my case.)
Instead I deleted both versions of libpng and hoped that reinstalling all the stuff would work.
brew update && brew upgrade
But look at this:
alex@Megabombus:~$ brew reinstall inkscape ==> Reinstalling inkscape intltool: Unsatisfied dependency: XML::Parser Homebrew does not provide Perl dependencies; install with: cpan -i XML::Parser Error: An unsatisfied requirement failed this build.
Now we’re switching from Homebrew issues to Perl issues!

Looking at the log file:

WTF “wrong architecture”? Now I’m thinking of our recent upgrade of the laptop to OSX Mavericks. Oh, and before that I migrated my account from the old Mac Mini using Mac OS 10.6.8 to this laptop… Considering that we’re using Perlbrew and that the resulting Perl is stored in my home directory, this might indeed be an issue.
Thus, deeper into the rabbit hole we go!

I think I will go and take some pretty pictures in the mean time.
In the end, everything seems to be ready.

I did notice something strange, though. When I opened a new terminal:
ERROR: The installation "perl-5.18.1" is unknown.
I had to manually change perl-5.18.1 to perl-5.18.2 in my
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE export PERLBREW_MANPATH="/Users/alex/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.18.2/man" export PERLBREW_PATH="/Users/alex/perl5/perlbrew/bin:/Users/alex/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.18.2/bin" export PERLBREW_PERL="perl-5.18.2" export PERLBREW_ROOT="/Users/alex/perl5/perlbrew" export PERLBREW_VERSION="0.66"
Yeah, ignore the comment on the first line. I wonder why perlbrew didn’t do this automatically when I uninstalled 5.18.1 and installed 5.18.2. Oh well.
And now, Inkscape!
