Inkscape And Hand Tool

If you have ever wondered and wanted to use the hand tool in Inkscape, you can do so by the following techniques :

1. You middle click and drag your mouse for panning the document.
2. Or go to, File->Inkscape Preferences->Scrolling. Then check on the "Left click pans when space is pressed". Presto! Now you can use the spacebar to pan the document, as you would normally do!

Installation of rvm erroring out in Catalina - Ruby 2.3.x - How to solve them?

If you had recently updated your macOS to Catalina and then faced problem with installing certain versions of ruby because of random error, pls try the following.
If you are getting the following error, while doing a rvm install
Error running '__rvm_make -j8',
Try the following:
Possiblility is that because of openssl 1.1. OpenSSL 1.1 is not compatible with the ruby compilation during the rvm install.
First install openssl 1.0 using macports
$ sudo port install openssl10
Now install (reinstall) the ruby using rvm with openssl pointing to the macports version
$ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/openssl-1.0/pkgconfig rvm reinstall 2.3.7 --with-openssl-lib=/opt/local/lib/openssl-1.0 --with-openssl-include=/opt/local/include/openssl-1.0
Just ensure that the openssl from macports is installed into /opt/local/lib/openssl-1.0
Hope this helps.
