TkInter needs Tk which need X11. I don't believe you'll get it to work on a Qt based ROM. For Sharp/Sharp compatible ROMs, PyQt is pretty much your only choice for GUI Python apps.

bummer, but there is also anygui, although its old....and unstable...

I don't know about Tkinter but Tk works fine under X/Qt in the Sharp ROM. Caveat: I've used Tk only via tclkit (which I mentioned to Bam on another thread). I am not sure about a direct install.

Yes, if you go down the X/Qt path, it may be theoretically possible. One would have to custom build the Tkinter stuff and I have no idea what that would entail. If you're writing new apps, it seems to me that just using PyQt would be a whole lot less work. PyQt is really an outstanding GUI framework ... far more sophisticated than Tkinter. If you're just trying to run an existing large Tkinter application, I'd be tempted to switch to OZ/GPE or pdaXrom.
