Error: Unable to Download Textures and Sprites

This has been reported on Inksmoto 0.7.0 only.

Overview

If you get an error, while trying to download sprites and textures off the internet like this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "refreshMenu.py", line 273, in <module>
   run()
 File "refreshMenu.py", line 269, in run
   ext.affect()
 File "/Volumes/Extra Hard Drive Space/Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/extensions/inksmoto/inkex.py", line 154, in affect
   self.effect()
 File "/Volumes/Extra Hard Drive Space/Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/extensions/inksmoto/xmotoExtension.py", line 73, in effect
   if self.effectHook() == True:
 File "refreshMenu.py", line 118, in effectHook
   self.getXmlFromTheWeb()
 File "refreshMenu.py", line 96, in getXmlFromTheWeb
   localXmlFile = open(localXmlFilename, 'wb')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/WeatherGameMan97/.config/inkscape/extensions/inksmoto/listAvailableElements.xml'

This means that the file "listAvailableElements.xml" is not in the .config folder.

Solution

To make it work simply open the extracted extensions directory and look for a folder called "inksmoto", copy that folder and paste it into the .config folder. Here is the path that you want your inksmoto folder to be in.

Windows:

C:/Documents and Settings/your username/Roaming/.config/inkscape/extensions

Mac OS X:

Macintosh HD/Users/Your username/.config/inkscape/extensions

Linux:

usr/.config/inkscape/extensions

Now, downloading textures and sprites should work now. If you still get problems, come by to the X-Moto network, and we will get you help.

You should get this if you did it correctly:

Nothing new from the Internet.
X-Moto textures/sprites list not updated.
0 new images downloaded.

This will hopefully be fixed in the next version of Inksmoto.

Error: Using the shortcut key for Checkpoints

This has been reported on Inksmoto 0.7.0.

Overview

When you install keyboard shortcuts, and try to use the hotkey "d" for Checkpoints, the key is used for the dropper tool for Inkscape. This is not a bug, just a minor conflict.

Solution

Best way to fix it is to edit the "default.xml" file for the keyboard shortcuts. This file is in the path here:

Windows:

C:/Document and Settings/you username/.config/inkscape/keys/

Mac OS X:

Macintosh HD/Users/your username/.config/inkscape/keys/

Linux:

usr/.config/inkscape/keys/

Change the hotkey to something thats not having conflicts with any tool or entity. (The hotkey "f" is what I use for checkpoints, since is not set in any tool or entity). Save it, and check the key if it works with checkpoints.

This will hopefully be fixed in the next version of Inksmoto.
