Python based plasmoids under KDE4
Last modified: 2009-04-23 12:59:59 EDT
Description of problem:
When user wants to install Python based plasmoid under KDE4 the issue occur.
Plasmoid can not works at all, and user can not simply resolve this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Python based plasmoids do not work out-of-the-box
Steps to Reproduce:
Try install this one:
plasmapkg -i gmail-plasmoid-0.6.5.plasmoid
and at the end, try to start them.
You'll get this message:
This object could not be created for the following reason:
Could not create a python Scriptengine for the gmail-plasmoid widget
This can be simply resolved installing this package by default with KDE environment:
yum install kdebase-workspace-python-applet
(In reply to comment #1)
> yum install kdebase-workspace-python-applet
Yes, I know that :), but many users do not (because do not know which package they must install for this kind of plasmoids).
Could be possible to include this package into KDE Group or as Requires into kdebase-workspace's .spec file (in the future), so it will be automatically installed with other KDE base staff, or on some other way?
We can and should add it to KDE Group, sure.
A Requires would be stupid, it'd defeat the whole point of making it a subpackage.
