Problems with Tcl/Tk

Problems with Tcl/Tk

Problems with Tcl/Tk

I am trying to access a program that requires tcl / tk, but is showing the following message:

Error initializing Oc_Config:

Unknown feature 'TCL_VERSION' in configuration 'linux-x86_64' Something may be wrong with the Tcl configuration file:


Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Use ubuntu 14.04.


RE: Problems with Tcl/Tk

Have you looked if the file /usr/lib/tclConfig.sh really exist ?

RE: Problems with Tcl/Tk

Yes, the file exist. The problem occurred when I updated the version 12.04 to 14.04.

RE: Problems with Tcl/Tk

I'm not sure, but maybe after updating from 12.04 to 14.04 you need to reinstall all Tcl/Tk packages (i.e libraries and development packages) too - something like:


apt-get install tcl8.x tcl8.x-dev tk8.x tk8.x-dev 
where 8.x is your Tcl/Tk version.

RE: Problems with Tcl/Tk

I solved the problem. Thank you for the information!
