Description Felix Kaechele 2013-05-16 08:31:45 EDT
In F19+ rsvg-convert was moved from librsvg2 to librsvg2-tools. Lyx needs rsvg-convert in order to process SVG images.
Therefor lyx needs to require librsvg2-tools.
Comment 1 José Matos 2014-02-05 17:25:55 EST
The convert tool from ImageMagick already supports svg, or is there a quality problem with converts conversions? (no pun intended) :-)

We can add librsvg2-tools as a requirement but before doing that I would like to have compelling reasons.
Comment 2 Felix Kaechele 2014-02-06 12:01:46 EST
I just tested this and it seems that this is no longer an issue.
From what I remember the original problem was that SVG previews would not render when librsvg2-tools was not installed.
Comment 3 José Matos 2014-02-10 08:53:12 EST
Thank you for the note. :-)

If lyx finds rsvg-convert present it will use it, if not it will fall back to convert (from ImageMagick) as the default converter. So I think that for the moment there is no need to require librsvg2-tools.

In any case with your bug report I took the chance to install librsvg2-tools :-) .
