The installation of ttkthemes is very simple. There are a few ways to install ttkthemes.


Installation from PyPI is easiest. Simply use pip to fetch the package and install it:

There is a single installation option available for ttkthemes. In order to use the high-quality PNG-themes instead of the GIF-themes, an extension is required under Python 2 and some earlier distributions of Python 3. Simply install the extension with pip as well.

This option installs the separate package tkimg, for which more information is available from here.

In some cases, it is required to update setuptools in order to install ttkthemes. It is not known which version of setuptools is exactly required at this time.


Installation from git is also possible:

python3 -m pip install git+
