fonts in Tk-inter problem

I'm trying to get IDLE running on my XO, so that I can show Python
development directly on it.
IDLE needs Tk-inter to run. I've installed it, and IDLE runs. The font
is very small. However I can't get tk to recognize fonts or size changes.
If I open Options/Configure IDLE.../'Fonts/Tabs', I only see 'fixed' for
a font, and size changes aren't honored.
If I run tkFont.py in its demo mode the first line I get back contains
"'family': 'fixed'" when it should say "'family': 'times'". Also the
size isn't honored in the dialog it opens.
If I do a fc-list, it reports that I have a lot of fonts on the XO.
Does anyone know where the ball is getting dropped, and what I can do
