Kinda.. I got something okay, but I think that it needs revision.=20
Here's what I did:
1) Made postscript files of all the svgs using 'inkscape --print=3D">
2) Concatenated the Postscript files together 'cat *ps > myfile'
3) Ran ps2ps on that file 'ps2ps myfile myfile2'
4) Ran ps2pdf on that 'ps2pdf myfile2 final.pdf'
For some reason the PDF is on portrait size paper instead of landscape,
I was never able to fix that -- I think there must be a parameter to
pass to ps2pdf for this... (the Postscript files look fine)
What I was thinking I might look into is trying to write a Scribus
script that would import a directory of SVGs onto different pages of a
Scribus document. If someone has used Scribus scripting more and could
comment that would be cool.
