What perl/Tk version are you using? Do this at the command line:
perl -e 'use Tk; print $Tk::VERSION, $/'
If it is not 804.027 or 804.028, you should grab the latest from
and install it.
My other worry is that your error message says "-12" -- font sizes
cannot be negative. I don't see any place in the tarball where I
specified a negative font size, so I am suspicious of your
~/.horae/athenarc file. The fonts section should be at the very end.
Are any ofthe fonts defined with size -12? Or are any colors
improperly defined? If so, simply delete (or rename or edit) the
athenarc file and try firing Athena up again.
