Hi i'd like to add an image Carousel in a widgetted area on my home page based on this tutorial
But I don't know how to call the scripts. I tried dropping the script along with the html in a text widget, but that doesn't seem to work. Can you help or suggest a better/easy way to accomplish this.
ps. working on a locally hosted site so no link available.
If you already have the widget area, it would be far easier to use a plugin which already includes installation of all the files required to make the carousel.
Another option is to use the native WordPress media functions and create a row of thumbnails which you can then add to a widget using the shortcodes WordPress includes for inserting galleries. It won't scroll like some plugins offer but you could install Slim Jetpack for added effects.
Installing a carousel manually can be a lot of hard work as its very technical.

I agree, this carousal is more trouble than I anticipated. I will go with your suggestion and just create a row of thumbnails.
Thanks for responding. Much appreciated.
