Thread: Unable to install program: Can't find a usable init.tcl

    Default Unable to install program: Can't find a usable init.tcl

    I downloaded some application for Linux (program microcontroller LPCXpresso). When I trying to install it some error appears
    Code:
    Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories: 
        /installkitvfs/lib/tcl /installkitvfs/lib/tcl8.6 /home/damon/src/installkit-1.3.0/out/lib/tcl8.6 /media/lib/tcl8.6 /lib/tcl8.6 /media/library /library /tcl8.6b1.2/library /tcl8.6b1.2/library
    
    
    
    This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
    I think Tcl is installed, maybe I need to reinstall it if so, how?
    What I need to do???

    Is tcl-devel installed? Reinstalling is hardly ever a solution.

    That list of locations probably doesn't include the correct one. On my 11.2 x86_64 system, it's at:

    /usr/lib64/tcl/tcl8.5/init.tcl

    Probably /usr/lib for 32-bit systems and probably tcl8.6 for 11.3 (not sure, 11.3 machine not powered on). Anyway you should look at your software's install script and find a way to give it a hint where init.tcl resides.

    Yes, it installed in usr/lib/tcl but I don't know how to redirect the installation file to use this path, its one executable file.

    Looks like a 32/64 bit mismatch. Try installing 'tcl-32bit'

    You're sure that there aren't some other (non-openSUSE) pieces of software that you should install as a prerequisite to this one? Those paths searched seem to suggest that some tcl stuff should be installed first.

    That page is not readable without signing up.

    Ok, this is not a good idea but since you don't know how to change the install program to look in other directories, try this workaround:

    mkdir -p /installkitvfs/lib
    ln -s /usr/lib/tcl8.6 /installkitvfs/lib

    This makes a symbolic link from the actual directory to where the install program expects to find it.

    Looks like it is trying to find tcl 8.6. This won't be installed on your
    system, since it's still in beta (Although the beta seems pretty
    solid.) It's pretty easy to build 8.6 from the source (at sourceforge),
    or you can download a pre-built binary from www.activestate.com.
