IDLE can't import Tkinter
I'm using red hat and uninstalled a prior 2.7.5 python version to install the 3.6.8 version with the idle, tk and tkinter however, no matter how I install the products I got the following message when I try to start idle3:

** IDLE can't import Tkinter.
Your Python may not be configured for Tk. **

Could someone please point me in the right direction?

try this link here build tlc
and this link stack question
For Python3.X use a lower case t
import tkinter
The issue was solved after installing Python manually (configure, make, install...) instead of the software manager. Thanks!
