Well - it is a important part of the Perl/Tk docs that it ships with
a set of
working examples! I'd hate to see them go missing altogether as the rest of the
Tk docs are a bit sparse.
Understood, but the issues you are reporting must have been present for quite
some time ;)
Maybe these demos could be moved into their own package, and
somewhere else ?
I meanwhile had a deeper look into this issue.
All the issues you report originate from upstream shipping the demos as
integral part of the perl-Tk package, while the Fedora package has changes
applied which try to move demos into /usr/share/doc. Unfortunately, these
changes are incomplete and don't work (they are causing the problems you are
So, yes, reverting these Fedora changes and splitting the demos into a separate
subpackage will likely work - Unfortunately, upstream's choice of installation
directories them is controversial and would need require thought.
An alternative would be to make the Fedora-specific changes working.
