I don't know that. Maybe somebody from here might be able to answer that, but I don't know. I'm kinda new into Tkinter as well. I have less than a year using it.

What I told you was what worked for me. And yes, what worked for me was installing source, which I download from here:


I don't understand as well, why the Mac Os x Installer Disk Image don't come already with Tk/Tcl 8.5, specially since the Windows installer already comes with all that ready, but well. I would even suggest that Python should come with ttk.

Those anybody knows what Python doesn't comes already with ttk? Why the Mac installer doesn't have Tk/Tcl as part of the installation?

But anyway Monte, in the mean time, try what I suggest. For me works just fine. As I told you before, if you need detail instructions on how to install Python and ttk from source, let me know.

I'd debated about whether to use MacPython or Activestate Python, which sounded like it supported the newer versions of tk better, but it also sounded like in order for that to work I'd have to download and install Activestate Tcl as well... maybe that's the simplest option...?

I thought it had been out for *years* now (well before python 2.6, anyways)... why do I need to jump thru all these dang hoops to use what seems like it should be the current version of things?  Sorry for the vent... I realize I'm very new to this and probably lack perspective and all that, but I'd really like to know.
