Inkscape is an open-source vector graphics editor, also a great alternative to Adobe Illustrator in Linux. To install Inkscape on Arch-based Linux distros, we'll be using the official repository provided by the Arch Linux community.


Install Inkscape from the Arch Linux's official repository:

  • Using pacman (default package manager)

    $ sudo pacman -S inkscape
  • Using yay (AUR helper)

    $ yay -S inkscape

After the installation is completed, use the shortcut on your desktop or applications menu to open Inkscape:
