Hi All,

I am trying to use a textbox in an undecorated window. It works under Windows, it fails under Linux. Here is a test code:

from Tkinter import *


root['bg']='' # transparent background
root.overrideredirect(1) # get rid of border
root.geometry("+80+120") # place on screen

root.focus_set() # take focus

bt.grid(row=0, stick=E) # a button to allow window's closure
tx.grid() # a text widget
tx.focus() # give focus to text


Under Linux, only mouse events are acknowledged, while the keyboard is ignored. How should I proceed?

Thanks for you advice,
