How to fix?[edit]

So, how do we fix these images? I bet the more advanced svg-people know but they won't share it. There should be some help-page in Commons to tell the easiest ways to circumvent the librsvg bugs. Like, I've encountered the problem demonstrated by this image twice already. The first time someone fixed it, but I still cannot do that myself. Is there something in Inkscape or Dia that breaks SVG-images? What programs should I use instead? This is rather frustrating. ZeroOne 14:32, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

I started a page, Librsvg bugs, for direct comparison of the librsvg rendering with how an image should look like. I started with text problems, but right now my main problem is with librsvg's handling of filters. Where can one find info? It seems that librsvg has severe problems with the correct handling of inheritance. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 09:24, 13 December 2008 (UTC) gives an overview of how different features are being rendered by different programs. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 11:33, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Development has stopped?[edit]

I looked at - no news since October 2005. The mail archive only contains spam. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 10:09, 13 December 2008 (UTC) right|100px

But something has changed recently: transparency in nested <svg> tags was not supported until 20 October 2008, but it is now. - Erik Baas (talk) 10:22, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Latest version available for download is 2.22, dated 23-Sep-2008 ( Also I found this page on - Erik Baas (talk) 10:32, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Possible way to circumvent bugs[edit]

Couldn't this be fixed simply by not using librsvg in the first place? What's wrong with using the original raw svg image directly on the page without a thumbnail? After all, that's the point of svg, so you shouldn't need bitmaps!

This category need a Template[edit]

Because many images missing a bug description so its very confused. We also don't know if the image is fixed or not. So I prefer to insert this category only by a template with an (short) bug description. --Perhelion (talk) 20:01, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

That is a great idea.--Svgalbertian (talk) 23:16, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
There is a template:Technically replaced that add this category, but another too. Maybe this could be mentioned here. -- Perhelion (talk) 20:13, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Another Sample[edit]

thumb Hi, here is another interesting sample. Compare it with your browser rendering. SVGLover (talk) 05:55, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

all solved[edit]

All pictures should have a SVG-Workaround except: (they have a png-replacement)

@Perhelion: I think I solved all librsvg-bug-SVGs, where I am able to make a workaround.  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 15:47, 20 January 2018 (UTC)


I am not shure but is File:MH370_SIO_search-en.svg a workaround for File:MH370_SIO_search_through_Nov_2014.svg. I didn't found the difference.  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 15:47, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Hey JoKalliauer, you removed the bug!? No, the bug description need updated. The bug is present in both. But there are some detail differences, File:MH370_SIO_search-en.svg has fixed space on the baseline-shifted numbers (km2). @Goran tek-en: I would overwrite!? -- User: Perhelion 17:25, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
@JoKalliauer:@Perhelion: File:MH370_SIO_search_through_Nov_2014.svg has a bitmapp embedded in it while File:MH370_SIO_search-en.svg is a true svg file. What is there to be fixed in File:MH370_SIO_search-en.svg, please ping me and explain, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:13, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Sorry I was confused, I thought the patterns does work in @Goran tek-en: version, but also in @Goran tek-en: version the pattern (rsvgbug) does not show up correctly .
So both versions does show a librsvg-Bug on small scales, therefore my question is resolved.

@JoKalliauer: I'm changing the pattern to lines and removing info about (rsvgbug). --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:00, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Thank you very much for correcting the file. I don't know why but I thought you old version already worked. And Sorry again for my confusion.  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 13:34, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
