- Subject: Location problem with init.tcl
I'm getting an error message using Tcl/Tk:
Application initialization failed
Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories:
/share/tcl8.4 /usr/local/share/tcl8.4 /library /usr/local/library
NB there is no directory /share/ and no directory /library/ in Cygwin,
though there are directories /usr/share/ and /usr/lib/ (ie /lib/)
In fact init.tcl is in /usr/share/tcl8.4.
This problem was last referred to this year at
and the poster hypothesised that "Probably the correct values for
--sharedir, --prefix, or whatever are not being sent to the tcl builds".
I thought I might cope by copying init.tcl to one of the searched
directories, but simply found myself moving further along the error
trajectory, this time to a "invalid command name tcl_findLibrary" failure.
Is the conjecture that there's something adrift with --sharedir or
--prefix in the tcl builds a correct one (or a likely one) and is this
something that could be addressed?
