When I am trying to use latex in inkscape (I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and inkscape version 0.92), I am getting the following output:

Inkscape has received additional data from the script executed. The script did not return an error, but this may indicate the results will not be as expected.

And the following is displayed in a white box:

  ./base/gsicc_manage.c:1244: gsicc_open_search(): Could not find default_gray.icc 

| ./base/gsicc_manage.c:2261: gsicc_init_iccmanager(): cannot find default icc profile

  ./base/gsicc_manage.c:1244: gsicc_open_search(): Could not find default_gray.icc 

| ./base/gsicc_manage.c:2025: gsicc_set_device_profile(): cannot find device profile

**** Unable to open the initial device, quitting.

PostScript/PDF Interpreter finished. Return status 256 executed command : /usr/bin/gs -q -dDELAYBIND -dWRITESYSTEMDICT -dNODISPLAY -dNOEPS "/tmp/psinf3HoKG"

The interpreter seems to have failed, cannot proceed !

It is not generating any latex output. Any solution?


Apparently, it was about a broken ghostscript problem and here is how it worked for me

sudo rmdir /usr/share/ghostscript/9.25/iccprofiles sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgs9-common
