Ok. i think I understand what's going on now. Looks like the "perspective" effect might not be fully
baked yet. I was getting a little confused between versions of Inkscape on my different OS's. On my
opensuse 10.2 box and my ubuntu 6.10 laptop and desktop, I see the perspective effect, I think,
because I used the .package file from sourceforge to install Inkscape. But on my opensuse 10.1 box I
used smart package manager to install Inkscape 0.45-1 from guru's repo. Apparently that version
wasn't compiled with the perspective effect. Also, on my Winxp box I do not see the perspective
This process has taught me something. I'll get more features if I install the official Inkscape from
the Inkscape web site (instead of grabbing from a repo with apt or smart) but those extra features
may or may not work especially if they're experimental.
I know...I'm slow sometimes...but right now I feel like friggin' Poirot.
