Could not create a python ScriptEngine for the 'X' widget
I tried adding a couple of widgets to my plasmoid, but all python based widget
show the following error:
"Could not create a python ScriptEngine for the 'X' widget", where 'X' is the
name of the widget.
This is also filed as bug 524685 (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-
Did some more searching and found the following page:
In the trouble shooting section they said to check for plasma_importer.py,
plasmascript.py and check wether python-dev is installed.
Those .py files were available and I had to install python-dev, but after that
the widgets still don't work.
The page at http://forum.kde.org/could-not-create-a-python-scriptengine-error-
t-27052.html indicates that some distros have the problem too, but not others.
What to do to get python-based widgets working?
