I have problems when I copy any object when using inkscape. Even after removing the config directories and using a completely blank document.
I create a simple rect and press ctr+c (or use the context menu) and this error comes up:
El script inkex.py y, por lo tanto, esta extensión necesitan la envoltura lxml («lxml wrapper») para libxml2. Descargue e instale la última versión de http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/lxml/ o mediante su gestor de paquetes con un comando similar a este: sudo apt-get install python-lxml
It says "inkex.py", which comes with the package, needs python-lxml. So I install the package, close inkscape, remove the configuration directories and try again.
Now it throws this error message:
No matching node for expression: /svg:svg/@sodipodi:docname Traceback (most recent call last): File "gimp_xcf.py", line 185, in <module> e.affect() File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/inkex.py", line 215, in affect self.effect() File "gimp_xcf.py", line 43, in effect docname = self.xpathSingle('/svg:svg/@sodipodi:docname')[:-4] TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not subscriptable
The script "gimp_xcf.py" also comes with the package. No clue why it is calling it since I'm only trying to copy (not even paste) from a clean svg document.
I click accept and this error message comes up asking me to install uniconvertor:
You need to install the UniConvertor software. For GNU/Linux: install the package python-uniconvertor. For Windows: download it from http://sk1project.org/modules.php?name=Products&product=uniconvertor and install into your Inkscape's Python location
I install uniconvertor, delete the configuration directories and try again. The previous "gimp_xcf.py" error message comes up, I click accept again only to get another error dialog:
No layers found
I click accept again and now I can paste the object. But the "gimp_xcf.py" and "No layers found" dialogs keep coming up in a loop which can only be stopped by killing inkscape.
I doubt very much this is a upstream issue since I couldn't find it in inkscape's bug tracker (such obvious bug would have been reported already) I also cannot find any report in arch's bug tracker. So I'm unsure if I should report this, anyone else has this problem? All related packages are up to date.

I'm not having this problem and can't reproduce it. I have inkscape 0.48.0-4 running on x86_64 using Openbox.
I think your next step is to reinstall.
Ok. I removed inkscape with "pacman -Rsn", then each inkscape dependency with the same command (except those that caused conflicts). After that I tracked down and deleted every single inkscape related file from my filesystem.
The problem persisted, so I rebooted the machine and it started working again. ಠ_ಠ
Not solved, not exactly, but cured.
Same problem here, but dresbs workaround did not work for me. I cant get rid of this problem.
I found I was having this problem running xfce4.8
There seems to be some talk about it here https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/418242
It seems that clipboard managers may be causing the problem. I wasn't running xfce4-clipman but I found that killing xfce4-settings-helper fixed the problem for me.
Hope this helps.
Killing xfce4-settings-helper works for me too. What sideeffects are there to killing the settings helper? I don't think this thread should be marked as solved as long as there is no real solution to the problem.
One side affect of killing xfce4-settings-helper is that keyboard shortcuts no longer work.
I've been meaning to file a bug report but I don't have time right now. If you feel up to it then please file a bug report https://bugzilla.xfce.org/
and you're right this thread shouldn't really me marked as solved.
just to tell you when using jdownloader, the link grabber which is overwatching the clipboard can cause problems too with inkscape...
