in reply to How to get Tk for ActiveState Perl 5.14.2?

See Re^3: Perl/Tk Issues - Tk is available at the bribes repository. However, it is usually easier to use the GUI version of ppm. Type just "ppm" with no args at the command line. The standard repositories are already known to ppm, but you have to enable them. Look in the Edit|Preferences dialog in the GUI version of PPM.

    The three Win32 repositories listed do not contain Tk, the base package. The Bribes repository is not listed for 5.14.2 version. Is it okay to include Bribes even though it is specified for 5.12 but not 5.14?

      No, it is not ok to install a ppm package marked for perl 5.12 on perl 5.14, it won't work. If you try to install it, ppm will refuse to install it.

      But    http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/Tk.ppd   clearly shows one listed for 5.14, so what are you looking at, what did you do?

        I was looking at the list linked to in my original post under the anchor tag WWW.

        Per the recommendation here I attempted to add Bribes anyway and it was accepted. And then via PPM the adding of Tk finally worked. Hurray!
