I expect that you use Python 2.1 on Windows.
The recipe is:
Open file "Python21/Lib/lib-tk/FixTk.py", remove all lines and write the
import sys, os
if not os.environ.has_key('TCL_LIBRARY'):
tcl_library = os.path.join(sys.prefix, "tcl", "tclX.Y")
os.environ['TCL_LIBRARY'] = tcl_library
Open file "Python21/Tools/idle/Percolator.py", go to the line 23.
You need to insert two lines of code into the function "insert":
def insert(self, index, chars, tags=None):
# Could go away if inheriting from Delegator
if index != 'insert': # You need to add
chars = unicode(chars) # these lines.
self.top.insert(index, chars, tags)
Open file "Python21/Tools/idle/PyShell.py", go to the line 470.
You need to add two lines:
line = self.text.get("iomark", "end-1c")
if type(line) == type(u""): # You need to add
line = line.encode() # these lines.
And please tell me, does this recipe solves your problem?
