[solved] Save-As ptl file - Have updated uniconvertor

Postby KenR60 » Mon May 08, 2017 1:07 pm

Don't you just love it when everything works perfectly and then your computer Dies and you need to re-install everything onto a New Computer!!!

OK running Windows 10, 8 GB Ram, 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
Inkscape ver is the latest 0.92

Installed the 64 bit version, got the Save As plt Error as

:tool_paintbucket: You need to install the UniConvertor software.

For GNU/Linux: install the package python-uniconvertor.

For Windows: download it from

https://sk1project.net/modules.php?name ... p=download

and install into your Inkscape's Python location

Installed the UniConvertor 1,1,5 into the Python Directory under Inkscape. Ran Inkscape and still the same error. Uninstalled both Inkscape and UniConvertor and then re-installed the 32 bit Inscape and then tested, same Error, then installed UniConvertor and re-Tested and still the same error

Any Help will be much appreciated

Same problem here... this seems to fix it:
You can fix this by downloading the standalone version of UniConvertor for Windows and installing it. Then run the file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\sK1 Project\UniConvertor-1.1.5\inkscape-patches\inkscape-patch.vbs'. If this doesn't work, you can manually copy the two files 'uniconv_output.py' and 'uniconv-ext.py' into Inkscape's extension directory (which is listed in Inkscape, see Edit > Preferences > System: Inkscape extensions). This will overwrite the two files in that directory that do no longer work on Windows and will allow you to use the im- and export functionality of UniConvertor with Inkscape versions from Inkscape 0.92 on.

Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

Ha - I'm glad that new FAQ item helps someone. It has been added only very recently, and there was some discussion whether to add it at all. Glad we did :D
