Today's Inkscape update resulted in an error on my laptop with Ubuntu
12.04.
If no one else can corroborate problems with today's
Ubuntu Software Center Inkscape update
then I won't post it on Launchpad.

It's entirely possible that it's my specific installation of Inkscape,
given the recent problem with outsets/insets after
installing nightly build/uninstalling/reinstalling from Ubuntu ppa.
(That problem went away sometime during the past week.)

So, anybody else get this on Ubuntu 12.04 (or other Ubuntu version)
during today's Software Center package update?

Not sure - could this actually be a knotter packaging bug, fixed in just
released v0.9.4?

Hi Adib!

I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Thanks for asking about sources. In response to your questions,
I removed the cafuego PPA from Ubuntu software sources,
Then installed Inkscape trunk 0.48.3.1 r9886 from Ubuntu software
center.

Knotter error messages still result but Inkscape is working properly.
( perhaps there is still some reference to knotter in the
install/uninstall
script?)

Here's the history of install/reinstall (with Ubuntu software center,
not
'sudo apt-get install'):
- added cafuego PPA
- upgraded from 0.48.3.1-ubuntu1.1 to 0.49-devel-12340+11~precise (may
25)
- 0.49-devel-12346 (jun 02)
- 0.49.-devel-12347 (jun 06) - inset/outset errors
- 0.49.-devel-12362 (jun 11)
- 0.49.-devel-12370 (jun 12) - knotter error messages
- removed cafuego PPA (today)
- uninstalled 0.49-devel-12370 - knotter error messages - not 'real'
 errors?
- installed 0.48.3.1 r9886 - knotter error messages  - not 'real'
errors?
- uninstalled 0.48.3.1 r9886 - knotter error messages  - not 'real'
errors?
- reinstalled 0.48.3.1 r9886 - knotter error messages  - not 'real'
 errors?
*Inkscape appears to have installed properly because it runs fine (so
far).*
