Help on Tkinter installation

I want to do a little Tkinter in my 1 credit
python practicum, but I am having problems
getting everything installed correctly.
A sample of the problem is below:
------------------- The python source, test.py ------------------
from graphics import *

def main():
win = GraphWin("My Circle", 100, 100)
c = Circle(Point(50,50), 10)
c.draw(win)

main()

----------- result of $python test.py --------------------------

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "test.py", line 1, in ?
from graphics import *
File "/home/slimick/cs198/graphics.py", line 85, in ?
import Tkinter
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.3/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 38, in ?
import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: No module named _tkinter

------------result of $locate _tkinter ------------------------------

/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2/Mac/Build/_dummy_tkinter.mcp
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2/Mac/Build/_dummy_tkinter.mcp.exp
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2/Mac/Modules/_dummy_tkinter.c
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2/Modules/_tkinter.c
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2/PC/os2vacpp/_tkinter.def
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2/PCbuild/_tkinter.dsp

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I would appreciate any help on this.

And, thanks in advance

I think he's using this module:
http://mcsp.wartburg.edu/zelle/python/graphics.py
it looks like a canvas-based thing, and the example would probably have
worked if Tkinter was installed properly on the system.

Well, thanks to some email and a fair amount of
time with Mr Google, I found that I needed to
update the Setup file.

(Platform: RH 8.0)

Prior to this I installed ActiveTCL8.4 .

So I made what I thought were the appropriate
changes to the "tkinter" section of Setup, I went up
a level (to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2),
did a "make" and this is what I got:

file libtk8.4.so does not exist

Well, when I do a locate, I find libtk8.4.so
in

/usr/local/ActionTcl/lib/libtk8.4.so

So I am caught with some kind of path problem.

Any ideas or suggestions?

(And thanks to all the respondents so far)

Did you follow the link in my last? I just went through
this problem and it worked for me.

Your tk library is installed in a very non-standard location. Python
can't find it.

I suggest you install tcl and tk from the RH rpms, here's tk, you can
search for tcl:

http://speakeasy.rpmfind.net/linux/r...&system=&arch=

Then put setup back the way it was and try again.

If you are going to use ActiveState products, then install the whole
package including their version of Python. If you do that, then
direct further questions to them.
