Hi Christoph,
   This is a well-working code that computes conductance  for graphene with 2 leads (conductance is now commented in the end).  The issue appears at line
485.

Loading the large package warning  may be due to running from Eric6 Python IDE that I use.

I have now the latest 1.4 Kwant version installed via pip3  ,  which added the necessity to remove the default values from "args" parameter list, as it's no longer supported

As for ppa install,  I might be doing something wrong:   (Linux Mint 19 = Ubuntu bionic)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kwant-project/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kwant

returns:
"Unable to locate package kwant"

The test
python3 -c 'import kwant; kwant.test(verbose=False)'

returns  21 warnings:  (see below)
