it's either / or - don't use both (the installer for the Egg-Bot extensions mentioned in comment #4 is an external project, and not required for the recommended workaround in comment #17). If you follow the instructions from <https://answers.launchpad.net/inkscape/+question/194132#comment-4> exactly, with an otherwise unmodified version of the original Inkscape package, the python-based extensions bundled with Inkscape do work (e.g. 'Extensions > Render > Gear…' as one example for easy testing).

If you need help with getting an external extension installed and running (once Inkscape's own extensions work ok), please ask a new question in <https://answers.launchpad.net/inkscape> (the bug tracker is not a support forum). Don't forget to provide information and links about that custom external extension (Inkscape itself does not include an extension to export to tikz).
