Subject description: At least one easy way to make it work...
 

I've set this up on a couple of machines now and thought I'd pass it along...

It may not be the most up to date libraries and such, but it works.

Installing Python:
Using Puppy Package Manager under the category System install python_plus-2.6.6-i486-s

After installing you will have the following missing libraries:

libtcl8.5.so libtk8.5.so libgoocanvas.so.3

Open a console and type "python" you should see:

#python
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Nov 27 2010, 1947:39)
[GCC 4.5.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license for more information
>>>


(No errors in the python installation)

Type "quit()" to exit python

Cleaning up two of the missing libraries:
Goto http://dotpups.de/ITAmember/python/, download and install:
tcl-8.5.7-p4.pet
tk-8.5.7-p4.pet

Open a console and type "python" then "import Tkinter" you should see:

#python
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Nov 27 2010, 1947:39)
[GCC 4.5.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license for more information
>>>import Tkinter
>>>


(No errors in the Tkinter installation)

Again type "quit()" to exit python

Goto http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/i386/libgoocanvas3/download, download and install

Getting Geany to execute Python programs:
Open Geany and select Edit > Preferences
In Tools change the Terminal to "/usr/bin/xterm -e ebash -c"

Testing Tkinter:
Open Geany and create a new document and enter

Code:
from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
w = Label(root, text="Hello, world!")
w.pack()
root.mainloop()


Save it as HelloWorld.py

Press the Execute button

The program should execute without errors

Reference Material:

Useful Python Libraries
Basic setup instructions:
1. Download the source from one of the links below
2. Unpack the source distribution and change directory to the resulting top-level directory.
3. Type "python setup.py install"

I downloaded and installed, no compiling and no problem.

I'll edit the original post to include it.
