For some reason Inkscape wasn’t opening up on my system. To figure out the issue, I started it from terminal and noticed that it throws error

inkscape: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Do what now? Well the most obvious thing, reinstall it.

Initial opinion

Looks pretty; well looks almost like sublime, behaves like it as well. On the negative side, it takes time for cold startup. Might not be a big deal for everyone, but that’s how it is. It since it’s based on Google Chrome/V8(whatever) it might not be any competition to text editors like Vim or Emacs when it comes to handling large files.
