I found 4 examples, none of which *do* anything. Perhaps they are only 
meant to show syntax. I am running WinXP. You?

.configure OK
.map OK
.layout OK? Text says "it is not intended to do anything useful"
and indeed the displayed button does nothing when pressed.
.theme_settings OK? I do not see any green or olive

What do *you* mean by 'did not work'?

They all compile and display something, but I would have to study more 
before I would know what to expect. It is possible that the examples 
have bugs, or that the ttk module does. Either should be reported on the 
tracker. Others have used it though.

Syntax error? Runtime exception? or just not look/act as you expect?
