ps2pdf DOS window shows up on importing eps
When opening EPS in inkscape GUI (1.0 and 1.1) first ps2pdf 'DOS' window appears for some time, then the DOS window is closed and then finally interface window for importing EPSs appears. The same happens when calling EPS to SVG conversion via command line - DOS window appears.
Detailed explanation: ps2pdf is part of mikxtex (latex) installation which I am using as well. If I remove ps2pdf.exe from where miktex is installed, transforming SVG to PDF is not working anymore. The question is: What happened if user does not have latex installation on his maching when running inkscape? Are some necessary files, like ps2pdf.exe copied to the machine while installing inkscape (while checking at the same time if such files already exist)?
Steps to reproduce:
inkscape.exe --export-type=svg filename.eps
DOS window (figure attached) appears.
What should have happened?
DOS window should not appear. In batch conversion that is just an unnecessary window blinking. ...
