Problems getting Tkinter to work while installing python as non-root

Discussion in 'Python' started by jose flanigan, Jul 4, 2003.

  1. I don't have root access, but managed to install Tcl/Tk in my local
    directory. I've also managed to install python 2.2 in my local
    directory. The problem is that for some reason Tkinter isn't working.
    I've looked through the various messages in the python installation
    and it seems like part of the installation is trying to write
    something to a directory that I don't have write-permission to I think
    this might be causing the problem.

    Is there a way around this? I need to set up a purely non-root
    installation.

    Thanks in advance.
