    This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.

    When I run one successfully installed bioinformatics software, I got the following error message. Can you help me tackle the problem? Thx in advance!

    do a
    locate init.tcl
    to find it, the easiest way to solve the problem once the file is located (as i have no knowledge of the software you are trying to install) would be to symlink to it like so:

    ln -s <FILE FROM LOCATE OUTPUT> /mgl/prog/share/lib/tcl8.4/init.tcl
