The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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)
