View Full Version : Plasmoids issue
October 16th, 2009, 15:06
I have installed FreeBSD8.0 and KDE4.3.1 and found there does not work plasmoids, which are written in python. Error is: Could not create a python scriptengine for 'plasmoid name'
Native plasmoids work well.
As I unerstand I need plasmascript.py library, but I can't find it. :(
Anybody know how to install python scriptengine?

This turns up in a search:
devel/kdebindings4-python Meta port of Python bindings for KDE
devel/kdebindings4-python-krosspython Kross Python scripting library
devel/kdebindings4-python-pykde4 Python bindings for KDE
You'll have to investigate by yourself, I have no idea.

I sow it. This tutorial does not work too.When I tried execute script line by line, it display error in line 'from PyKDE4 import plasmascript'

I can confirm this, plasmascript is not available even with kdebindings4 installed.

I know this is an old thread, but I have figured out what the issue is and have python plasmoids working now in KDE 4.3.5.
Re-compile x11/kdebase4-workspace after removing the following from the Makefile:
Make sure when the configure messages are passing by that Python support is enabled.
cp /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/PyKDE4/plasmascript.py* /usr/local/kde4/lib/python2.6/site-packages/PyKDE4/
This last step is the crux of the whole issue. plasmascript.py[c] is put in the wrong place so KDE4 can't find it!
Hope this helps someone...
