Thanks Peter.

This is the script up to where the error seems to fall:

"#!/usr/bin/env superkaramba"
"# -*- coding: iso-8859-1 -*-"

"import karamba"
"import subprocess"
"from subprocess import Popen, PIPE, STDOUT, call"
"import urllib"
"from urllib import urlopen"

"#this is called when your widget is initialized"
"def initWidget(widget):"
  "clkPause = karamba.createClickArea(widget, 156, 470, 35, 35, "qdbus 
org.kde.amarok /Player Pause")"
  "nowplaying = urllib.urlopen('http://www.hearteastmids.co.uk//jsfiles/

Hope this can enlighten things
