Is there an easy way to make n guide lines such that each one is x pixels from the previous one, other than manually entering a newly calculated x or y value for each line?

  • +1 for the word equidistant. Had to look that one up.

Inkscape does offer some pretty beefy grid options. That will be your best bet. You can use two separate grids if you want to highlight X and Y's "main" grid lines differently. Just keep pressing the New button.

enter image description here


You can also use Extensions > Render > Grid Creator - this will divide your document into n parts using guides (maximum 10 unfortunately).

You don't actually specify the distance between guides (like what you asked), and it depends on the document width, so Wray's answer is probably better in your case. But it's another way of generating equidistant guides ;-)
