One way to do it is by installing XDarwin (XFree86 for OS X) and the *nix
versions of Python and Tkinter. You can do this quite easily using Fink
<http://fink.sf.net>. I've writen a quick tutorial on how to get a
working Tkinter on OS X. You can find it at:
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
