So, I am trying to import Tkinter. However, I keep getting this error stating that Tkinter has not been installed.

ImportError: No module named _tkinter, please install the python-tk package


Can anybody help out?

It isn't easy to install Tkinter locally to use with system-provided Python. You may build it from sources, but this is usually not the best idea with a binary package-based distribution you're apparently running.

There's always a safer option to apt-get install python-tk on your machine. And it works for most  Debian-derived distributions such as Ubuntu.
