the following error happened on a program I wrote that uses tkinter.createfilehandler()
to catch the output of a shell command on someone else's box (for me it runs fine):
Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1345, in __call__
File "/usr/local/bin/pyfloppy", line 293, in start
File "/usr/local/bin/pyfloppy", line 303, in format
File "/usr/local/bin/pyfloppy", line 379, in mkfilehandler
tkinter.createfilehandler(fileobject, READABLE, function)
RuntimeError: _tkinter.createfilehandler not supported for threaded Tcl
When I googled for the traceback one of the results said:
> If your Tcl installation is threaded, you should use
> tkapp.createfilehandler instead.
however (on my box) I cannot find tkapp anywhere (or should it be _tkinter.tkapp ?).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
