Simple 3D effect like this in Inkscape
That is a linear gradient. To create it in Inkscape 0.91:
- Select the object that you want this applied to.
- On the Object menu, click Fill and Stroke.
- On the Fill tab, click the Linear Gradient button (it's near the top of the Fill and Stroke pane.
- (Optional) In the Name column, change the name of the gradient to something easy to remember.
Gradients can be re-used across objects, so a good name makes it easier to manage.
- At the bottom of the Fill and Stroke pane click the Edit button.
A blue line will appear on the object, with a square on one side and a circle on the other. This line represents the direction of the gradient.
- Move the nodes on the gradient so that it is in the correct direction.
Tip: You can use snapping to help with this, just like any other nodes in Inkscape.
- (To create the effect in the image the question) Click the Insert Stop button at the toolbar in the top of the Inkscape window.
A new node will be added to the gradient.
- Click each node and change it's color and opacity to the desired values.
To create the effect in the image in the question, change the first and last nodes to a green color and the middle node to something lighter green color.

- Where has the gradient editor gone? (Inkscape forums) (Gradients underwent a change in Inkscape 0.91, so you might see conflicting information out there about how to edit them).
