Subject: Installing Scid for Linux

I ported my program Gaviota to Linux and I want to see if it runs well under
Scid (it is working nice under xboard).

Scid relies on having installed libraries from Tcl/Tk. Before compiling, it is
necessary to find them on one's system (the 'configure' program from Scid tries
to do it). I have SuSE 8.0 and apparently the libraries are preinstalled but I
cannot find the include files tk.h and tcl.h.
For this reason, I downloaded Tcl/Tk version 8.3.4 from a mirror site and in the
gzipped file I cannot see the tcl.h file (tk.h is present). What do I do?

Another question: Every time I install something in linux it seems that it is
saving stuff in different places. What happen if I try to uninstall?
