I have some questions:

(1) Did you install the CSW package for smartmontools? You should and then installing CSWpython was a very good idea.
(2) Does the user group "disk" exist on your system? I found the hint in the docs [1] and in the source code of the plugin.

I'll try to test the whole thing at the weekend. Maybe I have to blame myself afterwards ;-)
