[Note] tcltk and anaconda

Tclsh/wish works fine with the version comes with Anaconda.  But font for Tk application is horrible.  There is no easy fix for this.

I have a Tk application I want to use and the font is unbearable.  Easiest solution is just install tcltk and use it instead of Anaconda's.

$ sudo apt-get install tcl tk

$ dpkg-query -L tcl

Write a simple shell script to execute the Tk application with Ubuntu tclsh and wish by putting /usr/bin first in PATH.



Misc...
When working with tcltk, I found tcltk .chm file is really helpful.
Get it from - http://tcltk.co.kr/node/1280
And install xChm (https://sourceforge.net/projects/xchm/) for Linux to view .chm file.
