Hello,

I am wondering under which name is recorded Xara (Xtreme) (LX) in portage.
I have not managed to find it.
Searching the web I read some bad news about Xara's future as near-open-source, would it be the reason for its non inclusion in portage.

1/ Is it somewhere in portage because I did not search the right way ?
2/ If not in portage, what is the mean I get to achieve its install under gentoo ?
3/ Should I strongly consider to change for another vector graphics software ? Which one ? Inkscape ? :cry:

Well well... I installed gentoo thinking I would be able to 100% rely on portage and zapped the chapters about overlays in the handbook. :oops:
It seems this is a good occasion for me to restart learning ! :D

Thanks a lot for the tip Ant_P as well as for highlighting important features I had missed.
