Comment 2 Henry Kroll 2023-08-01 01:11:48 UTC
The following from Fredrick Brennan is supposed to fix it.
I can't try it yet until pacman is installed, pending system update.
cd $HOME/.config/inkscape/extensions
source bin/activate && python3 bin/
pacman -S python-gobject python-cssselect
PYTHONPATH=/opt/share/inkscape/extensions/:/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/ ./

Comment 3 Kalev Lember 2023-08-01 04:42:05 UTC
Thanks - looks like the inkscape package has a missing dep on python3-requests.

Comment 6 Kalev Lember 2023-08-01 08:07:58 UTC
Reopening as it still needs a fixed flatpak build. The build system is acting up a bit but hopefully we'll get the flatpak build later today.

Comment 7 Henry Kroll 2023-08-03 07:02:58 UTC
If I just export PYTHONPATH before running inkscape, it also works. FYI

[k@kek:~]$ export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/
[k@kek:~]$ inkscape
