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

Ok, I got it.  Had to remove all single quotes and use backslash instead of
uptick to escape the double-quotes.

Here's a working Windows example:

Thanks again for the help.

Are there any known caveats to running these command on Windows?

I'm testing the above with CMD and no matter how I run it, it pops up a
dialog asking me what resolution to import the file at, I can't get it to
run non-interactively.

   - I've tried escaping the asterisks
   - I've tried gimp-2.10.exe
   - I've tried gimp-console-2.10.exe
   - I've tried swapping single quotes and double-quotes

It works on macOS Gimp 2.10.14 but does not work on Windows using Gimp

 When I try to run the first portion interactively, I receive the
following errors:

   - Opening *'C:\Users\owner\Desktop\((image'* failed: Error opening
   file C:\Users\owner\Desktop\((image: No such file or directory
   - Opening *'C:\Users\owner\Desktop\(car'* failed: Error opening file
   C:\Users\owner\Desktop\(car: No such file or directory
   - Opening *'C:\Users\owner\Desktop\(file-svg-load'* failed: Error
   opening file C:\Users\owner\Desktop\(file-svg-load: No such file or

I've tried using PowerShell and receive very similar results.  What am I
doing wrong?

A one-liner using Gimp and no other tools:

./gimp -i -b '(let* ((image (car (file-svg-load RUN-NONINTERACTIVE
*"input.svg"* "" *72* (- 0 *400*) (- 0 *600*) 0))) (drawable (car
(gimp-image-get-active-layer image)))) (plug-in-autocrop RUN-NONINTERACTIVE
image drawable) (gimp-file-save RUN-NONINTERACTIVE image drawable
*"output.png"* *"output.png"*) (gimp-image-delete image))' -b
'(gimp-quit 0)'


   - "input.svg" is the source file name
   - 72 is the output resolution in pixels-per-inch
   - 400 is the output width
   - 600 is the output height
   - "output.png" is the output file name

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

Probably the script you were running, the one you didn't includeand got
from Web archive, was in Scheme, yes.

It's a text file, and the likely error from the message is that it
calls file-png to export, and not file-png-save.

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