Inkscape 0.46 breaks gcode.py effect script

Asked by Brad Belcher on 2008-05-08

Hello, I recently upgraded my linux distro,(ubuntu 6.06 - ubuntu 8.04) and in doing so upgraded from Inkscape 0.43 to 0.46. I use an effects script gcode.py to export paths as gcode for use on a CNC router. The update seems to have broken the script, which can be found at:

http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?action=browse&diff=1&id=InkscapeHowto

I get the following message when I apply the effect:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/gcode.py", line 151, in <module>
    e.affect()
  File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/inkex.py", line 154, in affect
    self.effect()
  File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/gcode.py", line 103, in effect
    if node.tagName == 'path':
AttributeError: 'etree._Element' object has no attribute 'tagName'

I've been looking at the lxml documentation, but havent been able to get the script to run.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Brad

Hey, I got it to work. I looked at the dots.py script. Made a few changes to gcode.py and it started working.
   if node.tagName == 'path':
    self.group = self.document.createElement('svg:g')
    node.parentNode.appendChild(self.group)
    new = self.document.createElement('svg:path')
    try:
     t = node.attributes.getNamedItem('transform').value
     self.group.setAttribute('transform', t)
    except AttributeError:
     pass
    p = simplepath.parsePath(node.attributes.getNamedItem('d').value)

changed to

                        if node.tag == inkex.addNS('path','svg'):
                                self.group = inkex.etree.SubElement(node.getparent(),inkex.addNS('g','svg'))
                                new = inkex.etree.SubElement(self.group,inkex.addNS('path','svg'))
                                try:
                                       t = node.attributes.getNamedItem('transform').value
                                       self.group.setAttribute('transform', t)
    except AttributeError:
                                       pass
                                p = simplepath.parsePath(node.get('d'))

Thanks
