Description John Ellson 2012-03-06 07:56:55 EST
Description of problem:
The iwidgets demo fails because its tries to use wish8.4, but wish 8.5 is current.

The failure is easy for an experienced user to fix, but this is the introductory demo for new users of iwidgets.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/share/tcl8.5/iwidgets4.0.2/demos/catalog
Actual results:
/usr/share/tcl8.5/iwidgets4.0.2/demos/catalog: line 13: exec: wish8.4: not found

Expected results:
a window full of nice widgets

Additional info:
change line 13 to use wish8.5 and it all works fine
Comment 1 John Ellson 2012-03-06 08:24:20 EST
Using "package require Tk 8.4"  will check for 8.4 as a min version, so I'd suggest:

$ diff catalog.orig catalog
< #!/bin/sh
> #!/bin/env tclsh
< #\
< exec wish8.4 "$0"
> #
> package require Tk 8.4
Comment 2 John Ellson 2012-03-06 08:27:58 EST
Actually, even "package require Tk 8.4" can be removed, since "package require Iwidgets 4.0" does it implicitly.
Comment 3 Dmitrij S. Kryzhevich 2012-03-15 00:12:07 EDT
I'l see in a coule of days.
