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/tclConfig.sh (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!

  • You can also try more general package tcl-dev. In my case I also needed tk-dev for additional files. Commented Nov 5, 2012 at 14:31


sudo apt-get install tcl8.6-dev

fixes the error!
