Re: [O] how to handle svg files when exporting orgmode to html and pdf?

Thomas, Suvayu, Aaron, Nick, Eric, Carsten, Phil, et al,

Thanks for all your help.

I am now satisfied with approach for exporting images to inline html and inline 

In my hands, the following code block will produce in-line images in html and 
be included in exported pdf.

#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{svg}
#+begin_src R :results  graphics output :exports both :file mtcars.svg
with(mtcars,plot(wt, mpg))

I am using:
        Emacs 24.3.1
        Suvayus orgmode export filter:

(defun my-svg-graphics (contents backend info)
  (when (eq backend 'latex)
  (replace-regexp-in-string "\\`\\\\includegraphics.+\\({.+\.svg}\\)"
       "\\\\includesvg\1" contents))
(add-to-list 'org-export-filter-link-functions 'my-svg-graphics)

* svg latex package v1.0 2004/11/05

 * customize the emacs variable `org-latex-pdf-process` to include
'--shell-escape' (following advice in
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-dependencies.html, which outlines some
other options)

* customize org-export-html-inline-image-extensions to include  "svg" 

 * upgrade to inkscape version 0.48.+ (which is more recent than our
centOS repos proffered, but, hey) since the --export-latex switch that
svg.sty depends upon is not implemented till this version

* upgrade org-mode version 8.0.7-377 built from git pull yesterday

I think I've covered all the pieces.

I have not explored how/whether any options passed to includegraphics are 
interpreted by includesvg.

Now, if I could get .svg images to display inline in my emacs buffer.  The 
following is not respected, at least in my hands.  
        '(org-export-latex-inline-image-extensions (quote ("pdf" "jpeg" "jpg" 
"png" "ps" "eps" "svg")))
Any takers?
