Using one of the animation extensions error

Asked by Zech on 2018-03-13

I am using an animation extension in inkscape and everytime I want to view my animation, I click playback, and then inkscape sends this message and I don't understand what they are talking about. Does anyone know what this means:

Inkscape has received additional data from the script executed. The script did not return an error, but this may indicate the results will not be as expected.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "animation_preview.py", line 38, in <module>
    from fltk import *
ImportError: No module named fltk

It means that the extension hasn't been installed properly. It needs a library called fltk.

So I make a new folder rename it fltk and drop the inx and py files in that folder. And then move my fltk folder to C:/program files/inkscape/share/extensions is that right?

No. You need to install fltk in your Inkscape installation's python directory. I'm not a Windows user, and there are no instructions for this process. If the extension comes with installation instructions, please follow them, else please ask on the user mailing list or in the user IRC chat channel.
