Re: KDE and SVG Browsing

I have gained an interest in SVG, the new web graphics format that allows easy animation.

There appear to be no applications on Linux that allow quality browsing of SVG animations.  Even the Adobe plugin has been observed to crash under a light load of rendering.

I have been unable to have Konqueror and the Adove plugin coexist.  In Konqueror, SVGs are not rendered at all while in Mozilla, the same SVG will display correctly.  True, in Mozilla complex SVGs will soon bring down the entire application, but it displays them much better than Konqueror.

Can anyone recommend a web browser with good support for displaying SVG?  It's hard to create SVG graphics when they cannot be viewed.


22-6-2004 I wrote this to this mailinglist.  Search for the thread ksvg

there is a svg test program
johnny@athlon-linux:/usr/local/share/PRODUCT24$ svgdisplay
Usage: svgdisplay [Qt-options] [KDE-options] URL

KSVG standalone test app

Generic options:
 --help                    Show help about options
 --help-qt                 Show Qt specific options
 --help-kde                Show KDE specific options
 --help-all                Show all options

 --license                 Show license information
 --                        End of options

 URL                       SVG file to open.

In my installation (SID) I have the plugin. It works but not as well a the adobe svg viewer. They have one for linux. It comes with a installer. To have this plugin availible in konqueror change the behaviour. setting -> file assosiation. I hade to change the order of availible programms.
