tkinter Ignoring Certain Key Presses?

I am having trouble getting tkinter to recognize the following key presses-
it seems to be ignoring them alltogether:

Alt F1-F10: FreeBSD 4.x console running XFree86 and cygwin/X (current) connected
to same machine. Works on cygwin/X local to Windows machine and
native Windows.

Ctl 1-5: FreeBSD, Cygwin/X (local or connected to FreeBSD), Windows - i.e.
Does not seem to work anywhere.

Ideas anyone?

I'm on a Red Hat 9 system, which has Python 2.2.2 installed, and I installed 2.3 separately into /home/rob/Python-2.3/ (creating the symbolic link "py23" to point to my 2.3 installation). Now I'm trying to work out the kinks in the process. Unable to run Idle using 2.3 the way I've got things set up, I created a super simple Tkinter test program that just pops up a Label widget. I pasted below an example of how the RH-provided 2.2 runs...

I am creating some widgets by inheriting from Tkinter.Frame and populating the frame with whatever the widget will be then creating certain attributes/methods to be accessed later. My question is, is this a poper way to create widgets or should I take a different approach? Any help is greatly appreciated. Adonis

There are certain options for Tkinter widgets that have default values that I don't much care for (borderwidth, font come to mind) and continuously change when I'm building interfaces. With a bit of tweaking I have been able to give the widgets a look that rivals the best of them. However, I get tired of doing this when I'm writing code and would like a way that I could universally change them on my system. I have tried to find where in...

hi all i recently wrote a script that implements a puzzle. the interface mostly consists of a bunch of colored disks on a tkinter canvas. the problem is that the disks change their colors in ways other than the way they're supposed to. it certainly isn't just a bug in my script, since i can sometimes change the color of certain disks just by taking focus off of the window and then bringing it back again! does this sound like some known...

I'm a Tcl/Tk developer who has been working, slowly, at learning Python, in part because Python has better support for certain kinds of applications that I want to develop than Tcl/Tk does. Naturally, I thought that I would use Tkinter as the GUI for these programs. However, in doing research into GUI development techniques, sample code, and showcase applications, what has struck me is how little sophisticated GUI development seems to be...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
