These are only warning messages. You don't need astropy/sampy unless you are interested in VO or SAMP support (used in astronomy and astrophysics).

@Evaria: if you installed veusz from the standard Ubuntu repositories, you should not be encountering this error at all....

Here is the output of the following Terminal command in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:

Description-en: 2D scientific plotting application with graphical interface
 Veusz is a 2D scientific plotting and graphing package, designed to

Origin: Ubuntu

python-astropy and sampy are not in the list of package dependencies in the output above.

So they are not required when working in veusz. Those are optional packages....

The version 1.15 is very old and bug. It doesn't support astropy or sampy, anyway. More recent versions can be obtained here if you're using an older Ubuntu:

Can you help with this problem?
