I don't have "Smoothness" setting in my File/Inkscape
Preferences/Tools/Pencil! I can't see any other preferences dialog.=20
I'm using Inkscape-0.41 on Fedora Core 3.
I revise my earlier comment about Sodipodi's pencil tool more
precisely here: _No_ other software, including Illustrator, Corel,
Feehand, Inkscape, etc., has the superb smoothness of Sodipodi's
Pencil tool. I always work with Sodipodi when I want to draw freehand
- no other tools work as best and as smooth. In addition, I have used
sodipodi's pencil tool on a number of machines with different machines
(I started with with Red Hat 7.3 on Pentium 3 500MHz probably, IIRC)
and, IMNSHO, the pencil's smoothness has nothing to do with the
machine's speed - it works superb on my machine. No other vector
tools yield the quality that I get outta of Sodipodi. So, you guys
should improve your pencil tool. Since, it is opensource, I think it
should be relatively easy.
p.s. I would appreciate if you answer my earlier query about
./configure failure as well. That's still pending.
