Being a relative newcomer to Linux I have successfully installed the latest version of python (2.3) - on my Suse 8.2 version of Linux - which came installed with Python 2.2.
However I find that tkinter is not installed (when I type idle I get no module named -tkinter).
How do I install tkinter and I suspect I also need tk?
The instructions I have talk about setting PATH but I have no idea what PATH is or how to set it or how to see what is currently in PATH (I guess it is like the PATH in DOS/Windows).
I should have checked for the existence of tkinter before installing the new version of python, but I just didn't think.
One more question, when I type python at a command prompt I get the new version of python I just installed - why is that? What has the installation changed to route python to the version I just installed - I am just curious.
Presumably any Suse applications that rely upon version 2.2 will still be able to find it?
