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.

Hi and welcome, unfortunately I am no help as I am a Windows user. I am not too sure we even have members who use Ubuntu. I will give you a link to another forum that may be able to help you http://www.t-shirtforums.com/vinyl-cutt ... transfers/ Here's hoping you get the help you need.

I haven't tried this, but am aware of it.  The developer release of Inkscape has an Export-Plot extension that is supposed to be able to send directly to a hpgl, (also dmpl and knk,) compatible cutter.

Here is a screenshot of it's settings.  I am on Windows, but the developer release for Linux should still have the option.

I am using Inkscape 0.48+devel_64bit r13443.

There is also InkCut, but I have no experience with it.
