I encounter a very strange problem with IDLE. On my laptop n°1, it works flawlessly with the latest Python package (3.10.8-3). Manjaro is installed since months with regular updates.
On my laptop n°2, IDLE crash with the following message
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
File “/usr/lib/python3.10/idlelib/run.py”, line 23, in
from idlelib import debugger_r # start_debugger

from test.support import requires, ResourceDenied
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘test.support’; ‘test’ is not a package
After that, the IDLE GUI starts with message
Subprocess Connection Error
IDLE’s subprocess didn’t make connection.
See the ‘Startup failure’ section […]
First, I tried with a new clean user account… same result
Then, I tried with with Manjaro fresh install and updated… same result.
But… when I downgrade Python 3.10.8-3 to Python 3.10.7-1, IDLE works like a charm.
To summarize :
- on laptop 1, IDLE works perfectly with latest Python package (3.10.8-3)
- on laptop 2, IDLE works only if I downgrade Python package to 3.10.7-1, even with new user, or perfectly clean system.
I really don’t know where to investigate more, and why it’s not reproductible on my laptop 1. Any clue ?
