 How to install?

I can't seem to install it. I keep getting "Installing the package /home/*****/Downloads/101695-urlcompressor.plasmoid failed." I have KDE 4.2 running on Qt 4.4 in Kubuntu 8.10

This is the annoying bug in Gethotnewstuff again, right?

1. The plasmoid should appear in the list anyhow, so no problem, if you can use it.

2. If you can't use it (big red X), uninstall it in GHNS, install python-devel and check if you have the other packages installed.

3. Install the script again. The error message will remain, but it should work.

No, I was trying, unsuccessfully, to install the source from the plasmagik package. Installing from GHNS worked, though it did still give me an error.

 Still fails

Under Linux kernel 2.6.28-15 Kubuntu 9.04 KDE 4.3.1, this plasmoid does not initialize. I have tried and installed all solutions from this and other discussion threads to no avail.

Still returns error message "script initialization failed".

Seems that there is a permissions/UID issue.

If I try to install it by CLI, the result is:

I have a bug with your app:

Traceback (most recent call last):
...
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe9' in position 12: ordinal not in range(128)

how do you fix please?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
