The problem seems not to be GeoXp, but rather that your installation does not have a working tcltk/X11 setup. Can you check that your tcltk works, for example using it in update.packages()? Are you perhaps installing GeoXp on a server with no X11 rather than a workstation?

No, it works on Linux workstations.
