Hi Ned,

Iidle3 from the terminal does not work. I get an error "IDLE can't import
Tkinter. Your Python may not be configured for Tk."   Same error if I just
type idle.
I can launch Python3 from the terminal. 
I can launch IDLE 2.7.1 from the GUI. I am new to Linux and am a bit lost
trying to troubleshoot. It seems like an install problem or a configuration
problem but I can't figure it out.
I have Python/IDLE3 working on Mac and Windows but I need it on Linux for a
class project.
