Mac Users with Plugin Issues

One of the most common problems that Mac users will experience with running Sigil plugins is not having a sufficient version of TCL installed (needed for many plugins' GUIs). The problem will manifest with error messages that typically include something similar to the following:

Code:
File "tkinter/__init__.py", line 35, in <module>
ImportError: dlopen(/Applications/Sigil.app/Contents/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.5/lib/python3.5/lib-dynload/_tkinter.cpython-35m-darwin.so, 2): Library not loaded: /Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/8.6/Tcl
Referenced from: /Applications/Sigil.app/Contents/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.5/lib/python3.5/lib-dynload/_tkinter.cpython-35m-darwin.so
Reason: image not found
The issue is well-known, well-documented, and fairly easy remedied.

From Sigil's release notes:

Quote:
Attention Mac OS X Users

Per the recommendation of www.python.org (see https://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/), due to bugs and the age of Apple's internal Tcl library, you should also download and install ActiveState's ActiveTcl Community Edition. To get the latest bug fixes, Sigil-0.9.8's embedded Python has been linked with the very latest version: Tcl 8.6.4.1

We may not redistribute this Package with Sigil due to ActiveState's binary non-redistribution policy.

So please, if you have not already done so download and install this version of ActiveState's Active Tcl Community Edition, until we get a chance to do our own build of Tcl 8.6.4.1 from source for future releases. ActiveState is a primary contributor to www.python.org and a respected and trusted source for python and tcl/tk related binaries on both Windows and Mac OS X.

See: http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/downloads
Version: 8.6.4.1
