McRoss depends on tkinter and idlelib which are supposed to come with the python standard library, but some linux distros (read: ubuntu) decide to split the python distribution into multiple packages. If you're on ubuntu try apt install idle3. Do let me you if that fixes the issue!

idle-python3 on voidlinux worked !

Ty, i'll package it rightly

Thanks for this info. Could you add the note about apt install idle3 to the README, perhaps? Not everyone will search the closed tickets.

It's actually already mentioned in the README, but I've tried to improve it just now.

Thank you, this is much clearer!!
