Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Surprisingly, IDLE is not included by default.
Python is there.
I prefer to download tar.gz or .deb installer for IDLE.
Googled to look for it, but could not find.
Where can I get the installer for IDLE?

Thanks,
Vineet

There are two versions of IDLE in the repositories in 12.04

For Python 2.7 sudo apt-get install idle-python2.7

For Python 3.2 sudo apt-get install idle-python3.2

And two In 13.04

For Python 2.7 sudo apt-get install idle-python2.7

For Python 3.3 sudo apt-get install idle-python3.3

In a terminal CTRL+ALT+T

As I said in my Q, prefer an offline installer instead of doing apt-get. – Vineet May 3 '13 at 3:54
