and another one: I have both tk8.4 (the default on Squeeze) and tk8.5
installed, -deve packages come from 8.5 only:
robbi:~# dlocate -l tk8
||/ Name Version Description
ii tk8.4 8.4.19-4 Tk toolkit for Tcl and X11, v8.4 -
ii tk8.5 8.5.8-1 Tk toolkit for Tcl and X11, v8.5 -
ii tk8.5-dev 8.5.8-1 Tk toolkit for Tcl and X11, v8.5 -
configure seems to find 8.5 just fine:
LIBS='-ltk8.5 -ltcl8.5 -lrt -ljack -ljack'
However running pd from the "bin" directory, the applications shows me its
ugly, non-aliased 8.4 face.
If I remove the tk8.4 package with aptitude, Pd starts with its nice and shiny
8.5-face, but that's not an option in the long run, as other packages need 8.4.
Pd 0.42 would happily use 8.5 even with 8.4 installed. Can I hack 0.43 somehow to get
the nice GUI I've grown to like a bit by now?
(I tried something like "package require Tk 8.5" in pd-gui.tcl already, but
that won't start at all.)
