You need to install tcl and tk packages for your system in order to run the program. LINUX Depending on your distribution, you should install tcl-8.4 and tk-8.4 (or greater versions). For instance, under Debian (or Ubuntu), you need to type # sudo apt-get install tcl tk MINDOMS install Double click on tk-yupana.tcl 5 - RUN TK-YUPANA From here on, I suppose you have ALREADY installed TCL and TK on your system (please, see chapter 4 for details) LINUX (debian, ubuntu, ecc.) Open a terminal and execute the following command: # sudo dpkg -i tk-yupana_<rev>_all.deb To run tk-yupana, simply tape: # tk-yupana Click on the Condor Icon to access menu; there you'll find a quick-help text. LINUX Open a terminal and change the directory to tk-yupana-r0.x/ # cd tk-yupana-r0.x Type: # ./tk-yupana.tcl Click on the Condor Icon to access menu; there you'll find a quick-help text. MINDOMS Open the explorer window and navigate to the tk-yupana-r0.x/ Double click on the icon tk-yupana.tcl Click on the Condor Icon to access the menu; there you'll find a help text. You can find more exhaustive instructions in the User Manual located in the doc/ directory. 6 - LOCALIZATION tk-yupana has been translated into: Italian, Spanish and English. The default language is Italian. The GUI labels have been also transalted into other languages (german, french, portuguese, russian, japanese, filipino) to check the graphic rendering of different characters, but these translations are not 100% reliable. Besides the help-files are missing for these languages. (See also Chapter 7 of this manual). LINUX if tk-yupana starts in another language than yours, You should set up correctly the environment variable LANG to have it translated into your language; i.e. launch tk-yupana in the following way: # LANG=es ./tk-yupana.tcl (for spanish) or # LANG=en ./tk-yupana.tcl (for english) WINDOWS ??? Dunno! ??? 7 - HELP ME! If you want to collaborate with the project and translate tk-yupana into your language, please contact Have you any idea about how to localize a tcl/tk application with msgcat under Windows? Write me, and I will add the infos you provide here! Thanx. If you don't know how, but you would like to help, it's not so difficult!
