i even tested the hello-python from
 http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/Plasma/Python/GettingStarted
it works fine for me after kdebase-workspace-python-applet is installed

Comment 5 Henry Stilmack 2010-05-12 18:47:32 UTC
Still no joy after installing kdebase-workspace-python-applet. The hello-python applet gives this (I followed the tutorial exactly and installed the applet with plasmapkg:

plasmoidviewer hello-python

Unknown widget popup, with the following:
"This object could not be created for the following reason: Could not find requested component: hello-python"

kdebugdialog gives the following info:


plasmoidviewer(10373)/libplasma Plasma::CoronaPrivate::addContainment: loading of containment "null" failed.
plasmoidviewer(10373) KServiceFactory::findServiceByDesktopPath: "findServiceByDesktopPath:  not found"
plasmoidviewer(10373)/libplasma Plasma::AppletPrivate::init: Check your constructor!  You probably want to be passing in a Service::Ptr  or a QVariantList with a valid storageid as arg[0].
