The executable is 'python' and is generally found in /usr/bin/
And I have successfully used the module 'Tkinter' (stands for Tk  
interface). The following script opens a window that opens and closes  
fine and registers keys and clicks (Obviously it doesn't use  

# File: MouseKeyClicks.py

from Tkinter import *# load Tkinter module
root = Tk()             # root widget is the window

# define mouse and key callbacks
def callback(event):
         print "clicked mouse"

def key(event):
         print "pressed key"

# make window
frame = Frame(root, width=300, height=300)
# bind callbacks to keys and left mouse click
frame.pack()              # size window and make it visible
frame.focus_set()     # set focus to the frame so events will be  

root.mainloop()   # enter event loop
