Yes, thanks, that works fine also. And is probably better (because shorter) 
for the simple tests.

I haven't seen the samples and templates before. i searched, assuming they 
should be somewhere, but the SuSE kdebindings rpms do not contain the 
templates (such as basicapp.py) and the samples. Whoever packages that did 
cost me a lot of time by leaving that out.

Now I downloaded the pykde source and it's all there. Good. Looking at the 
samples answers a lot of questions I had and saves time.

I will test it :-)
