"No module named eggbot-scan"

The full message is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "eggbot.py", line 34, in <module>
import eggbot_scan
ImportError: No module named eggbot_scan


This is my first time with arduino, so I tested the upload using the Arduino IDE and Serial Monitor (step 8) and the stepper motor did move, so I don't think I've got a USB cable or port issue.

I'm running Inkscape 0.91 with the EggBot 2.7.1_Mac extensions, Arduino 1.8.5 and uploaded the Ejjduino_ARDUINO

I just reinstalled the EggBot mac extensions (which backgraded the eggbot.py file) and I'm back to the Error "Failed to connect to EggBot. Sad"

So I've upgraded the eggbot.py file again and I'm back to "No module named eggbot_scan" when I try to run any of the Eggbot Controls in Inkscape. I've looked in the folder at path /Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/share/inkscape/extensions and indeed there is no module called eggbot_scan in there. Where can I get the missing module?

thanks, Becci

Any luck with this? I'm at the exact same spot as you. . . Not entirely sure what else is needed at this point. The egg bot works just fine on my pc but I'd like it to work on my macbook air for portability

I got it working. Instead of installing and running the "EggBot.v2.4.0.dmg" I downloaded the zip file "EggBot_extensions_v2.4.0.zip" and manually copied the files into the 'extensions' directory. Hope this helps you.

p.s. I was having issues with the "EggBot.v2.4.0.dmg" running, it wasn't able to find the Inkscape application in my 'Applications' directory on my mac but manually copying the files over did the trick.
