I'm using Linux. Ubuntu. I checked on synaptic and I have
readline-common. Do you mean something else?

Anyway I tried running the program in the iPython shell and it works

Yes, I know about Urwid and wxPython and they're just too much. I was
thinking about curses too, as suggested by others here, but that's too
much too.
