Sorry for the delay, we'd been housesitting, and didn't have easy access
to the 10.4 machine. Anyway, a couple of files I just tried that work fine
on 10.4 here are the standard desktop backgrounds:
/Library/Desktop Pictures/Aqua Blue.jpg
/Library/Desktop Pictures/Graphite Blue.jpg
I just go to File -> Open pick them and they open right up.
Could you tell me what happens when you try this? Does a blank canvas
load? Does Inkscape crash and disappear?
I'm just wondering, were you trying to open jpegs by dropping them on the
Inkscape dock icon? The launcher currently only opens things like SVG and
EPS in this way, though it could be made to open jpegs too.
If you can't open the above files, could you please file a bug report and
I'll give you instructions to try to troubleshoot it deeper.
