comment Parley says “Failed to determine interpreter for scriptfile” for all stock scripts on Mint 17 (with Python 2.7.6)
Tried it from a terminal and it lists its syntax, so apparently yes.

Per your suggestion, reported at bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=341540 , in case it's not something I did wrong to set it up...

Oops, I hadn't noticed the original error popup gave the exact path. D'oh...

Indeed I finally found them at /usr/share/kde4/apps/parley/plugins/, and example.py is just like on that page, starting with #!/usr/bin/env kross.

Although, that kde.org link also shows their example script containing a shebang line like you had shown. Since the example script was one of the five stock plugins, which all fail, I think that this is probably not the cause of the failure. (Also, would a fully GUI KDE app use bash to invoke python anyway?) Nonetheless +1 for places to look.

Yeesh, $ find / -type d -iname 'parley' found only ~/.kde/share/apps/parley, which I had also already tried (it contains only two files, neither are .py.)

api.kde.org/stable/kdeedu-apidocs/parley/html/… claims it can be found "usually" in /usr/share/apps/parley/plugins/ but that wasn't true either.

Googling Parley has a lot of pollution.

I didn't see any interpreter options. As for the scripts, the script manager does not appear to tell the location or even the exact filename of the script, and they weren't in ~/.kde/share/apps/kvtml like the vocab files, or anywhere near by that I could see. I'll keep looking...

comment Thunderbird 31.2.0 “warping” in text-only Compose window on both Linux and Windows
I've experienced it less disabling every plugin permanently. Why the listed plugins ought to have anything to do with this is beyond me. Why shitty, intrusive plugins are shipped with it by default (or got installed behind my back) is also beyond me. Who needs Shockwave in an e-mail client, for example?
