Comment 2 Gérard Milmeister 2008-06-06 15:24:59 EDT
This may be be a problem with tcltk 8.5. Some hints can be found in:
Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to make it work.
Comment 3 Gérard Milmeister 2008-06-16 12:40:25 EDT
Unfortunately, skencil will not run anymore with tcltk 8.5. Therefore there will
be no package for Fedora anymore.
