The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Welcome to the forum!

And sorry it took so long to get your message approved.  My DSL connection died, and I had to wait for the guy to come out and climb the pole.....

Unfortunately, your problem is beyond the abilities of the people who are (still) active in this forum, to handle.  I would suggest posting either in Inkscape Community forum or InkscapeForum.com.

I can tell you that it's probably nothing you're doing wrong.  What little I do understand about the traceback errors, indicates a problem with one (or both) of those extensions.  And it's the traceback error messages which I don't understand (and I'm guessing the other member who visits often, probably doesn't either).

I've never heard of that extension before.  The best advice I could give would be to look for an upgrade to that extension. 

(I do know that in the past when I've seen traceback errors with "unittouu" the advice has either been to get an upgrade for the extension, or downgrade Inkscape to an earlier version.  But again, that's just an anecdotal observation on my part, and it's not coming from any technical knowledge.  The other forums will be your best bet.)

(fyi - this forum may soon be converted to read only, and traffic redirected to one of those other forums)
