I removed the 8.3 libraries (even though it said there were 
dependencies..installed the 8.0.5 series of tcl and tk....and TKinter 
installed all right. I was goint to then upgrade the 8.0's back to 8.3 
but I got the warning about those libraries mentioned above so I decided 
to wait.

BTW.. How do I start the IDLE in Linux???

Thanks,
Chris
