Is it possible to export an SVG directly to ICO using Inkscape? I have an SVG file that I would like to export as ICO for using as favicon, but it looks like Inkscape only allows me to export to PNG.

As far as I'm aware, it's not currently possible from Inkscape.

$ inkscape --export-type=ico input.svg
InkFileExportCmd::do_export: Unknown export type: ico. Allowed values: [.dxf, .emf, .eps, .fxg, .gpl, .hpgl, .html, .jpg, .odg, .pdf, .png, .pov, .ps, .sif, .svg, .svgz, .tar, .tex, .tiff, .webp, .wmf, .xaml, .xcf, .zip]

If you just need to get an .ico file, maybe try exporting from GIMP.
