TkAqua is a separate installation that is available from this URL:
You'll find the current version (8.4.9) there. The tkinter binary that
is installed by PackMan is just a thin wrapper over those frameworks.
I've noticed a great number of questions about PackMan recently, as it
seems the repository has been more or less abandoned in favor of the
individual package installers from the undefined.org/python site. While
that's fine, to say that this transition has been graceful or even
minimally well-documented would be an understaement. There is a
continuing need for the PackMan repository, if only for legacy
components like tkinter that will not be updated by anyone nor available
Would it be a bad idea to set up a permanent URL/plist address for these
legacy packages that could be plugged into PackMan, and make this
address a) easily discoverable on the Internet in a FAQ somewhere, and
b) as the default address in the next iteration of PackMan? Because the
default URL that is supposed to open when you open PackMan seems
permanently broken (I've seen a dozen questions about that on the
mailing list in the past few months).
For what it's worth, here is what seems to be the (current) canonical
list of PackMan URL references:
I guess that would do as the permanent address.
If anyone can amplify/clarify this, please do so.
