This is very irritating. I'm Using Ubuntu Oneiric and when I use Inkscape and make a couple of copy-paste operations inside the image, I get the following popup message:

The script did not return an error, but this may indicate the results
will not be as expected.

this extension. Please download and install the latest version from, or install it through your
package manager by a command like: sudo apt-get install python-lxml

I tried updating the python-lxml package ans it's no use. Any other solution
