I tried to install inkscape in my Ubuntu 14, but it doesn't exist. And when I install my ubuntu says that is already install, but when I put in the terminal $ inkscape it says that is necessary to install.

It is confusion.

See file below

How can I fix this problem?

    Please don't post screenshots of terminal output: just paste the text. And you can paste in English by prepending LC_ALL=C to your commands... – jasonwryan Jun 24 '14 at 1:10
  • first of, if you use -y (which just makes apt-get assume that you agree with installing the suggested package), set the flag after install and before to-be-installed packages. Second try to sudo apt-get update , then sudo apt-get install inkscape – polym Jun 24 '14 at 1:11

    What happens if you type which inkscape? Do you see it in the Applications menu? – Renan Jun 24 '14 at 1:18
  • See this blog post, it shows how to add the Inkscape PPA: enqlu.com/2014/03/… – slm Jun 24 '14 at 2:12

I'm sorry but I can't read your language.

It is possible that you forgot to add the PPA of inkscape:

  1. Add inkscape.dev/stable PPA

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:inkscape.dev/stable
  2. Update list

    sudo apt-get update 
  3. install inkscape

    sudo apt-get install inkscape

    inkscape is in the default repositories of ubuntu, it's not necessary to add PPA for this. – chaos Jun 24 '14 at 9:22
  • The Inkscape snap is newer than the version in the archive and works on all supported Ubuntu versions, including 14.04. Execute sudo apt install snapd in a terminal to install snapd and then sudo snap install inkscape to install the Inkscape snap. – Martin Wimpress Apr 30 '18 at 12:17

Maybe you had inkscape installed at some point, and then some files got deleted?

In 14.04, inkscape is included in the main repository:

$ apt-cache policy inkscape
Installed: 0.48.4-3ubuntu2
Candidate: 0.48.4-3ubuntu2
Version table:
*** 0.48.4-3ubuntu2 0
    500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages
    100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

What happens if you do the following?:

$ apt-get update; apt-get install --reinstall inkscape
