Paraview 5.7.0 - import tkinter

I’d like to use the pre-compiled binaries of ParaView 5.7.0 to run some python 3 scripts (which is running on a former version of paraview I compiled myself) but there seems to be a problem with the tkinter package

Python 3.7.4 (default, Sep 27 2019, 14:55:29) 
[GCC 6.3.1 20170216 (Red Hat 6.3.1-3)] on linux
>>> from paraview.simple import *
>>> from tkinter import Tk
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<console>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/srit/Downloads/ParaView-5.7.0-MPI-Linux-Python3.7-64bit/lib/python3.7/tkinter/", line 36, in <module>
    import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_tkinter'
resetting ...

Any clue what could be wrong? Thanks in advance!

tkinter is not present in the release of ParaView. You need to build ParaView yourself to be able to use it.

Ok, thanks!
