Hi I posted this message on the Inkcut forum a week ago (see below)

If someone out there could help it would be great. I would describe my computer knowledge as basic!

My PC is running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and I am running Inkscape 0.92.4 I have downloaded and installed the Inkcut extension. When I try and open up Inkcut I get a error message as follows...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "inkcut_open.py"line 26, in <module>
import inkex
ImortError: No module named index

therefor inkcut does not open up, so if some could help this would be very helpful. I have tried looking online for more information but its difficult when you don't always understand what your doing!

kind regards

I have been given a response from someone saying the following " I would need to try the inkscape forums as the inkex module is part of inkscape itself and it looks like error is coming from inkex module itself.

So please could someone out their please help  :beg: :???: :ty1:

How did you install Inkscape? Is it a snap? Or is it from the ppa? Did you remove any extension files?

(if it's the snap, do:

snap remove inkscape
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:inkscape.dev/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install inkscape
)

I'm not sure which forum you mean, or what the reply you got there means.  InkCut is an Inkscape extension, but it does not come packed with Inkscape.  I mean, you installed it manually, so it clearly is not a native feature.  So I'm a little confused with their response.

If Moini's suggestion doesn't fix it, please tell us where you downloaded InkCut from, and also please tell us how you installed it.  But definitely try Moini's steps first.

effect.affect()
File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/inkex.py", line 283, in affect

Which instructions did you use for installing InkCut?  These?  https://www.codelv.com/projects/inkcut/docs/installing

You could confirm that the files are where they are supposed to be.  Beyond that, I could only suggest to wait for Moini.

offhand, I have no idea what could be the reason. I'm surprised though, that the instructions are for Python 3, while Inkscape does not support that.

Anyway, I think you're already getting help from the right place now: https://github.com/inkcut/inkcut/issues/177
