I have tried to install new widget for the kde desktop. Some of them could not 
be started and the following error is reported: 
Could not create a python ScriptEngine for the X widget. 

Here is what I found when starting those plasma widget manually:
$ python ./.kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/Plasmacon/contents/code/main.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./.kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/Plasmacon/contents/code/main.py", 
line 29, in <module>
from PyKDE4 import plasmascript
ImportError: cannot import name plasmascript

If I'm not mistaken, PyKDE4 is part of the py26-kdebindings-kde4 (Python 
bindings for KDE), which is seems to be correctly installed.
pkg_info | grep -i kde | grep -i Python
py26-kdebindings-kde-4.3.4 Python bindings for KDE
py26-kdebindings-krosspython-4.3.4 Kross Python scripting library
$ cd /usr/local/kde4/lib/python2.6/site-packages/PyKDE4
$ ls
__init__.py     dnssd.so        khtml.so        kparts.so       nepomuk.so      
polkitqt.so     solid.so
__init__.pyc    kdecore.so      kio.so          ktexteditor.so  phonon.so       
pykdeconfig.py  soprano.so
akonadi.so      kdeui.so        knewstuff.so    kutils.so       plasma.so       
For information, Plasmacon and Tarmoid are two of the widgets I have tried to 
install and which have the same errors. I don't know how to investigate this 
issue any further (although I'm willing to). 

Best regards,
