Many of you already know Inkscape, the program open source for excellence vector graphics, that with Scribus and Gimp defines the complete package for graphics its GNU/Linux. If on one side, however, is limited in 'import / export formats (not more than it is Adobe Illustrator), the other is definitely more versatile as modular.

The following software allow the import format ".to", Owner Adobe Illustrator.

UniConvertor is a universal vector graphics translator. And 'one tool to command line, model that uses objects sK1 to convert and format ".to".

I also suggest that the software "ai2svg.py", a small script written in python for the conversion "on the fly" files Adobe Inkscape in SVG.

To operate the files you just have to copy-paste the script into a blank document which we will call "ai2svg.py".

Allow application execution File with "chmod 777 ai2svg.py".

To use the file you just type "python ai2svg.py drawing.ai". The result will be "drawing.ai.svg".

To open the Adobe Illustrator file simply rename giving it the extension PDF. For example, if I had to convert the file "prova.ai" I would be enough to rename it "prova.pdf".
