Thanks Josh, your suggestion worked.  I had to type the entire
pathname of the idle.py file for this to work, since it is in the
/usr/doc/packages/python/Tools/idle directory.  However, if the
python package that I have were compiled correctly, I wouldn't
need to do this.  So eventually I will need to download the
source and compile it correctly, as suggested by the 3rd
message of this thread.  For the time being, your suggestion
provides a work-around, and I could get the Python Shell
window and started working with the language.  It is pretty
cool.  Thanks.
