As I explained on another thread...
The first time I ever went to use Inkscape, I downloaded it (I didn't know about repos then, and I was using Fedora core 7)
anyway, I downloaded it from inkscapes website, extracted the zip file and then could not find it.....
I never asked anyone for help as I was way to embarrassed
To this day I still have kno idea where it wound up
I tried over n over, n over... so at that time... I ust have had about 6 different areas where that file was placed
and don't even ask me what has happened to all the apps I've wanted to try, but require you to compile, etc... (cuz I am still clueless when it comes to that shhh...tuff to this very day)
So.... what was your first experience like?
