Description Horacio Rodriguez Montero 2008-07-19 20:30:21 UTC
Description of problem:
Tix is a megawidget extension for the Tcl/Tk graphical programming

The tcl and tk versions in use are 8.5.2 and tix presents some incompatibility
problems with those versions (some widgets just don't work).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tix-8.4.2-X  with tcl 8.5.Y and tk 8.5.Y

How reproducible: very reproducible running this script:
wish << END
package require Tix
tixScrolledHList .e

Actual results:
unknown color name "{#d9d9d9}"

Expected results:

Additional info:
This is because there has been a change of the way tcl converts from
sctring to/from lists. 
Tix 8.4.2 has some problems handling default widget colors that has been
fixed in Tix 8.4.3.

Please upgrade to Tix 8.4.3.

please see

I believe that it's the same issue. Patch backported, fixed in tix-8.4.2-6.fc9.
