Install Tk by running the following commands:
cd unix && ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-threads && make
Running the tests is not recommended. Some tests may crash your X Server. To test the results anyway, issue: make test. Ensure you run it from an X Window display device with the GLX extensions loaded, else the tests will hang.
Now, as the root user:
make install && make install-private-headers && ln -v -sf wish8.4 /usr/bin/wish
--enable-threads: This switch forces the package to build with thread support.
make install-private-headers: This command is used to install the Tk library interface headers used by other packages if they link to the Tk library.
ln -v -sf wish8.4 /usr/bin/wish: This command is used to create a compatibility symbolic link to the wish8.4 file as many packages expect a file named wish.
