python-lxml

Post by Akuna » 9. Oct 2009, 07:08

Inkscape seems to need this library to embed images instead of just linking them (which it does by default)

Below is the eror message from Inkscape when I tried to embed an image.
The fantastic lxml wrapper for libxml2 is required by inkex.py and therefore this extension. Please download and install the latest version from http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/lxml/, or install it through your package manager by a command like: sudo apt-get install python-lxml
Thank you ;)

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

Get it with slapt-get ;)

Should I add it as a suggested dependency to inkscape?

Thank you very much :)

Not sure what to say... I use it all the time but some folks may not & might be happy to have Inskscape work without it. I guess it depends on its size.

Your judgment! :)
