While the Standard Python Library contains well over 200 modules, sometimes you'll need to install new ones. In particular the graphical user interface (GUI) module '
Tkinter' and the impressively functional '
PyGame' module can be missing.
Assuming your Raspberry Pi has the official Debian-based Linux image on the SD card here is how you'd perform an install.
Boot up your Raspberry Pi and ensure it's connected to the Internet. Then open a new terminal window with the LXDE Desktop's '
Other->Terminal' menu option.
Now type the following Linux commands next to the '
$' prompt, pressing the '
Enter' key each time:
$ sudo apt-get install python-tk
$ sudo apt-get install python-pygame
If prompted enter the password you used when logging on to your Raspberry Pi, and reply '
y' to any prompts.
