Hi xor
You can do something like that using  dialog  or  Xdialog.

These sites provide examples:

https://bash.cyberciti.biz/guide/A_menu_box

I found what I was looking for (99.99%) on this youtube page. :)

Of course, it needs to be adapted to TCL.

the most important features respectively:
* Feature of selecting more than one application for 1 category :)
* create a complete list for beginners; Ability to see all preferences on a single page ;
(especially for new users using the same hardware to find and install drivers more easily,
It is very important that it can be a visual preference guidance guide for people of different languages! )
choose the same as in the picture mark; easier than learning a language.

UPDATE:
=======
This script is outdated and never updated beyond ubuntu oneiric. Even oneiric wouldnt work now because of the changes made in the repositories since then.
I'm reuploading it so you can use it only as a reference. New Link : https://www.dropbox.com/s/lyt4mg87pthorsb/rmc.sh?dl=0
