Thank you for your reply.
In the server (the one that will use commandline) i have:
This is also what yum returns as last compiled versions.
With this versions, the generated PDF has the same issues
It seems that inkscape version is already the latest stable (not dev)
release, but cairo is not.
If you can, i would have a great favour to ask:
That server is already in production, so i would avoid altering libs in
order to compile newest versions till i'm sure it will be needed.
If you do have the latest inkscape dev and cairo, would you please try
to perform the
inkscape -z svgfile.svg --export-pdf=pdffile.pdf --export-text-to-path
command over the SVG file i attached in first post, and show me that PDF?
Knowing if this upgrade will solve the issue would be a great help to me.
Thanks in advance, sorry to abuse of your patience!
