Newbie Prob : IDLE can't import Tkinter

Discussion in 'Python' started by Romain FEUILLETTE, May 10, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I'have just install Python 2.5.1 on Linux and the IDLE doesn't seem to
    works because it didn't find Tcl/Tk

    Is there someone to explain how to modify the file "setup.py"
    to tell the install that Tcl/Tk are at the paht : "/usr/bin/tclsh" and
    "usr/bin/wish/" ?

    I have attached to log file of my terminal.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Romain

    Perhaps you haven't installed Tkinter?

    I'm not sure which distribution you are using, but on my box (with
    Python2.4 installed) the relevant package is tkinter-2.4.4-1.fc6.rpm.
