[Tutor] Total newbie question

I'm trying to install python 4.6 on my Xubuntu 16.04 desktop, and I
keep getting scads of errors that culminate with this from make test:
INFO: Can't locate Tcl/Tk libs and/or headers
warning: building with the bundled copy of libffi is deprecated on
this platform. It will not be distributed with Python 3.7
Python build finished successfully!
The necessary bits to build these optional modules were not found:
_bz2 _curses _curses_panel
_dbm _gdbm _lzma
_sqlite3 _ssl _tkinter
To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for
the module's name.
I'm not sure how to handle this, but the upshot is I can't run idle
(or idle3) on my system at all.
What's the trick to getting all of python set up so I can use it? I
have not found a good guide for how to do this.
