tkinter and cygwin

    Hi,

    I've recently started learning python programming and have been
    experimenting with a few basic GUI programs. My work system is
    cygwin/Windows XP. I use X-windows in cygwin but when I run my
    python/tkinter program from an x-win terminal , a normal XP window is
    opened up. Any text output from the program of course shows up in the
    terminal I started the program from. Is there a way to make python open
    up a window in the X display instead of an XP window? It's really
    annoying because if I click on another window or terminal in the
    X-window screen, the X-window display will then cover up the python GUI.

    Thanks,
    John

    For better or worse, Cygwin's tcltk package is essentially a Win32
    build. So, the behavior you are observing is expected although not
    necessarily desired.
