How exactly did you try to run IDLE?
$ python idle.py
Should do it if you are in the same directory as idle.py

Yes you will need X running.

That probably won't work, your best to use the Bash prompt.
You could create an alias for bash:
alias idle='python <your idle path here>/idle.py'
Or a link to the idle.py file from GNOME if the association
of .py and python is set up.
