I also experience this nasty bug. It is present for many years now. Up to
Ubuntu 16.04 I used the script from comment #37
but now it stopped working. Hence I updated this shell script following the
remarks in comment #74
It is workaround, but for me it works perfectly. My Inkscape version is
0.91r13725 on Ubuntu 16.04. I hope it will help some of you.
In general it is much better to manually edit the files which generate these
nasty errors as is explained in comment #74, but in my case I need to do this
on more then 10 different desktops, hence the script is much more useful.

UPDATE: After further investigation it turned out to be a problem related to
the copy operation, in combination with a totally unrelated running Java
Reading some followups and other bug reports, it seems to be caused by the
new clipboard management system (introduced as a fix for the bug #170185), as
reported in bug #421597
So far these applications are known to randomly trigger an input/output
extension (on linux):
- FreeRapid Downloader
- xfce4-clipman-plugin 1.1.3
- xfce4-settings-helper (Xfce 4.8)
- Team Viewer (teamviewerd 10.0.36)
The original report was this:
I'm getting this error when I try to edit a text object created previously
with a font that's not available in this system.
It looks like Inkscape has problems to resolve the font substitution and
displays the error message in a popup window that keeps appearing again and
again, leaving no other remedy than closing inkscape and reopening it.
The error message is attached.
