Description Roland Leißa 2008-10-22 21:03:51 UTC
just start insight and you'll see an error message. I have dev-lang/tk-8.4.18 on my system. I guess it is important to know.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
# insight

Actual Results:  
Tk_Init failed: Can't find a usable tk.tcl in the following directories:

This probably means that tk wasn't installed properly.

Expected Results:  
insight launches.
