Warning about a new script altering the results

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everybody,

I received a warning that a new script “did not return an error, but this may indicate the results will not be as expected”.


Inkscape has received additional data from the script executed. The script did not return an error,

but this may indicate the result will not be as expected.
The fantastic lxml wrapper for libxml2 is required by inkex.py and there this extension. Please download and install
the latest version from <http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/lxml/>, or install it through your package manager by a
command like: sudu apt-get install python-lxml

How can I know for sure that the script will not alter the results?

Please clarify.

Thanks a lot.
