Has color "Green" changed from Python 3.3 to 3.4 ?

+3 votes

I just updated this morning my Python from a 3.3rc to 3.4 (Windows) and I noticed that the 'Green' color in tkinter GUI is not the same at all.

'Green' in 3.4 is very dark. I had to replace it with 'Lime' to get back a nice 'Green'.

I don't think color will be different, Its should not be dependent on python version

More likely the color is defined by tcl/tk rather than Python, and your Python installations may be using different versions of tcl. Searching for 'tcl/tk color definitions' finds following -

From Tcl/Tk 8.6 on, Tk uses Web colours instead of X11 ones, where they conflict.

and "green" is one of the affected colors.

I want to install in my Python 3.4 environment on a Centos 5 box. My /usr/local/bin/ contains:


We are behind a proxy server and I tried this:

# /usr/local/bin/easy_install-3.4 

Searching for 
Download error on hostname '

'', '', '', '',

Some packages may not be found! 

Couldn't find index page for '' (maybe misspelled?), Am I best to use pip or easy_install? also if easy_install, how can I fix the above error?

# initialize cookie and retrieve cookie from clients browser
cookie = cookies.SimpleCookie( os.environ.get('HTTP_COOKIE') )

if cookie.get('ID') is not None:
 cookieID = cookie['ID'].value
 cookieID = random.randrange(0, 9999)
 cookie['ID'] = cookieID
 cookie['ID']['path'] = '/'
 print( cookie )

I use this code to retrive or set a cookie to the visitor's browser if present and identify him by it.

All work well except the situation where the user visits my webpage by clicking a backlink on another webpage.

Then for some reason the cookieID changes to another value thus a new entry appears into the database when insert happens.

What can I do about that?

I am working on drawing map from shape file in Python 3.2 basemap. But, the longitude values at the bottom axis are only shown partially. Also, all latitude values are missing.

Here is my python code.

import shapefile as sf
import sys
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pylab as plt
from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap

 map = Basemap(projection='stere', lon_0=-106.4, lat_0= 31.9, lat_ts = 31.9, 
 llcrnrlat=31.7, urcrnrlat= 31.85, 
 llcrnrlon=-106.5 , urcrnrlon= -106.1, 
 rsphere=6371200., resolution='l', area_thresh=1000)

 plt.figure(num=None, figsize=(10, 8), dpi=80, facecolor='w', edgecolor='k')

parallels = np.arange(31.7, 31.85, 0.25)

map.drawparallels(parallels, labels=[0, 0, 0, 1] , fontsize=10, labelstyle='+/-', dashes=[2, 2])

meridians = np.arange (-106.5, -106.1, 0.25)

map.drawmeridians(meridians, labels=[0, 0, 0, 1], fontsize=10, labelstyle='+/-' , dashes=[2, 2])

No matter how I changed the labels, the latitude/longitude legend values are still missing.
