Re: [Gimp-user] SVG to PNG using a script

Are my examples written in Carrette’s SIOD instead of TinyScheme?  Was
the svg-to-raster command removed in a certain version (or perhaps not
distributed with the macOS build?).

This seems like it's a fairly simple script, but the fact that it doesn't
work leads me to believe something has changed since the linked article was

After re-reading your post, is it safe to assume my original question was
written in scheme/script-fu?

If so, can someone direct me how to get a list of scheme commands that can
be executed from a vanilla gimp install?

I'm confused, I'm attempting to use the gimp command line, is it no

This is a specific attempt to use Gimp for a task.  No additional
software installed.  If Gimp ships with a usable version of python in a
reliable location, I'd be happy to leverage that, but the question is in
regards to a target system with only Gimp installed, assuming it doesn't
have Inkscape, ImageMagick Python or Perl.

I'm asking how to use the gimp command line only.

I was wonder if there was a way to utilize Gimp's scripting system to
convert an SVG to a PNG?

Yes, from python, perl or scheme (script-fu).

there's also batch mode add-ons such as phatch.

You might prefer to use Inkscape for this one - it can do this in the

The best resource I've found is here however, attempts to run this on
machine are failing using GIMP 2.1.0.

Hoping you mean 2.10.18

I'm using MacOS to write the script, but the target platform is

We are a release behind n the Mac because we don't have a Mac
maintainer right now.

I understand there are many other tools for performing this
conversion (and
I'm leveraging these tools in other parts of code) but I was hoping
write this as a fallback for this particular system.

For the error you're getting try changing file-svg to file-svg-save
