Can't find idle in Fedora Core 1


Hi All,

I have recently installed Fedora Core 1, no problems, however, as a budding Python enthusiast I tried starting "idle" but with no luck.

Python is installed and I can run it interactively from the command line, but I thought IDLE was part of the distribution and would run by default.

Using the "locate" command (from "updatedb") didn't reveal anything useful either...

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

jdw

Can't find idle in Fedora Core 1

actually I ran "whereis" before "locate", no luck there...any binary paths that "whereis" shows (e.g. /usr/bin/idle) would show up in the "locate" command as well...

I might just uninstall/reinstall python and see what 'appens...

Can't find idle in Fedora Core 1

Found it!

Just to close off this thread, my install of Fedora didn't include "tkinter", and idle requires the tkinter module in order to run...

I installed this with apt-get and now it works!
