gitk fails with error "/usr/bin/gitk: line 3: exec: wish: not found"
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This is on a relatively fresh install after installing the git packages
This is relatively easy to fix manually, but I assume it can and should be fixed at the package level so end users don't experience this.

Steps to fix manually:

sudo eopkg install tk
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/wish8.6 /usr/bin/wish


Differential Revisions
D799: Update tk to 8.6.8

If someone gets to this before me, tk should be added as a rundep of gitk and that symlink should be added to the package.
