This morning when i tried to run SCIRun, I got this error message. Can anyone help me with it. Im running ubuntu as my OS.


Loading Tcl,Tk,Tk_Init failed: Can't find a usable tk.tcl in the following directories:
    /home/joe/SCIRun/thirdparty.bin/lib/tk8.3 /home/joe/SCIRun/lib/tk8.3 /home/joe/lib/tk8.3 /home/joe/SCIRun/library /home/joe/library /home/joe/tk8.3/library /home/joe/PhD/tk8.3/library

This probably means that tk wasn't installed properly.

In most case, this means your DISPLAY environment variable is not set correctly.
