I'm trying to install something that uses Tcl and it requires the config file tclConfig. I've installed tcl via sudo apt-get install tcl8.5 but after doing a search there isn't such a file.

Did I miss a step somewhere?

According to Ubuntu Packages Search there is no file named tclConfig. A close match is /usr/lib/tcl8.5/ (package tcl8.5-dev).

If that isn't what you need please post what you try to install and any error messages you get.

Awesome. That did the trick thanks for the help! – tom Jan 13 '12 at 20:17
You can also try more general package tcl-dev. In my case I also needed tk-dev for additional files. – Damian Melniczuk Nov 5 '12 at 14:31
