    Hi,

    maybe you should post a bug report in bugzilla about this issue: Bugs:KDE - openSUSE

    Have a lot of fun

    I too am having this problem..........however I just installed openSUSE KDE. I'm not sure if I need any other python libraries, but I was having the same problem with Fedora KDE.
    Any ideas? I'm going to see if I have all of the python libraries that I need....

    Ok so I've tried several things to get it working. Apparently the fix involves these files from this KDE kb article.
    Error:

    Could not create a python scriptengine for "your package name"

    Solution: check if your plasma installation has the required files (plasma_importer.py, plasmascript.py) and the package python-dev is installed.

    Packages for openSUSE are available in the KDE:KDE4:Factoryesktop repository (python-kdebase4 and python-devel).

    Source files: Index of /trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/plasma/scriptengines/python
    So I manually installed this repository:
    KDE:KDE4:Factoryesktop.repo
    then installed python-devel successfully
    then I tried to install
    python-kde4base
    however I get this error message:
    Code:
    Problem: nothing provides libpython2.5.so.1.0 needed by python-kde4-4.2.88svn973768-65.2.i586
     Solution 1: do not ask to install a solvable providing python-kdebase4
    After this I manually downloaded and installed libpython2.5.so.1.0, and I still get the message. I then tried:
    locate libpython2.5.so.1.0
    and found it here:
    /opt/testing/lib/libpython2.5.so.1.0
    which is exactly where the rpm said it would install.

    What am I missing here? I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

    I've found that I have libpython2.6.so.1.0 in /usr/lib/, and I even tried copying libpython2.5.so.1.0 to /usr/lib then trying to install kdebase4...........no luck.
