Why not use the postscript printer drivers off adobe's website and print
to file xxx.ps. This produces a good output that you can convert with
gsview and ghostscript. The following link has a good description.

Subject: [Inkscape-user] nice eps output
First of all, I really really love inkscape, and am using it for all my
technical drawings. If it had support for easily adding text to
objects, and connection points, it would be even better ... but I'm sure
these things or similar things have already been requested.
I would like to include the attached inkscape .svg file in a latex
document. Using the png might work, except that I can't use pdflatex
because I am making slides with prosper (which uses eps and is therefore
incompatible with pdflatex ...). So I am stuck with eps.
If I export it to eps, it renders badly in all viewers I've tried,
whether in eps or pdf form (gsview, ggv, acroread, gpdf).
I can get it to look nice if I import a png into the gimp and flatten
the layers in the image, and then export to eps. However, this (a) is
somewhat painful (especially for tens of images), and (b) doesn't
preserve the image perfectly.
Is there any way to get eps files out of inkscape that the viewers I've
listed (preferably acroread) will display properly, without taking the
svg->png->eps multi-application route?
P.S. I have gotten nice eps files out of inkscape before, but only
black and white ones without any transparency / alpha-channel stuff.
