Version 8.4.0 no longer provides tixwish. From the ChangeLog:
* tclconfig/* (new):
new TEA based build system. This build Tix as a standard Tcl
extension, and does not have support for stand-alone tixwish.
Here's what TixIntro(3tix) says:
The tixwish program can be used to execute Tix-based applications.
tixwish is deprecated. You shuld use the standard wish program from
Tk and access Tix via the "package require Tix" command.
So, if you have a script that begins with
try replacing it with
package require Tix
The man page should be removed, and it might not be a bad idea to
document this in NEWS.Debian.
