I'm trying to use the PDF CMYK export plugin for Inkscape, but it fails when I save the document.

I have selected an ICC profile (A FOGRA39L.icc profile) and applied it to most of the colors in my document.

When I try saving to a PDF, I get this:

Error saving with PDF CMYK

Am I doing something wrong? Is this known?

You should be asking the plug in manufacturer, not here. – Scott Oct 3 '12 at 7:09
Concerning CMYK PDF export in Inkscape (and the extension you mention), see also this bug report. – Skippy le Grand Gourou Jul 29 '15 at 9:31

Apparently, the extension is not supported anymore and is replaced by the outputpro plugin.

Unfortunately, the outputpro plugin only exports to JPEG currently (and is only in Portuguese).
