  • Field changed: Severity (Low → Very Low)
Someone provide one and I might include it. Remember this has to not show up if tk is not installed (tk is an optdepend).

I took this from a package for debian.
But the icon is missing

That does not deal with tk being an optdepend. It will need a TryExec type line for wish(?) to detect the tk installation

I have decided not to implement this. If I provide a desktop file for idle, then why not pynche, modulator, etc. I suggest that you request the python devs to include them.
