WXMAXIMA ========= wxMaxima is an interface for the computer algebra system maxima. For more information about maxima, go to http://maxima.sourceforge.net/ wxMaxima can be found at http://wxmaxima.sourceforge.net/ wxMaxima uses wxWidgets and runs natively on Linux and Windows. It provides nicely formatted display of maxima output. LICENCE ======== wxMaxima is licenced under GPL. See the file COPYING. INSTALLATION ============= BINARY INSTALLATION -------------------- Binaries for Windows are provided at wxMaxima homepage. Windows binaries come with an installer. You should install wxMaxima in a subdirectory of maxima installation directory (see section CONFIGURATION). Binaries for some Linux distributions are contributed by wxMaxima users and are available from the download section of wxMaxima homepage. SOURCE INSTALLATION -------------------- ** Linux Download and install wxWidgets library from http://www.wxwidgets.org/ Go to the source directory and do ./configure make make install ** Windows I build the windows binaries using Dev-CPP. Dev-CPP can be downloaded from http://www.bloodshed.net You will also need to install the wxWidgets devpack (and its dependencies), which can also be found at the web-page. In Dev-CPP create a new wxWidgets project and import all the sources of wxMaxima. ** Mac OS X Support for Mac OS X is experimental. To build wxMaxima first make sure you have wxWidgets (it is possible that the static build is required) installed on your system. Then build wxMaxima with ./configure --with-wx-config=<path to your wx-config> make make wxMaxima.app This should create a working wxMaxima.app. This has been tested with wxWidgets version 2.8.7. wxMaxima has been tested with maxima compiled with cmucl. If you use a different lisp and wxMaxima does not work, recompile maxima using cmucl. ** Building from SVN (Linux) To build wxMaxima from SVN, first checkout the SVN tree. For details see http://sourceforge.net/svn/?group_id=126731 Then build wxMaxima with ./bootstrap ./configure make cd locales make allmo cd .. make install CONFIGURATION ============== ** Linux wxMaxima does not need any configuration if maxima is in your path. If not, configure wxMaxima with Maxima->Configure. ** Windows To automatically configure wxMaxima, wxMaxima must be installed in a subdirectory of maxima installation directory. For example: maxima installation: C:\Program Files\maxima-5.17.0 wxMaxima installation: C:\Program Files\maxima-5.17.0\wxMaxima If you install in some other directory, you must configure wxMaxima with Maxima->Configure. PRINTING ========= ** Linux The default Postscript driver used for printing on Linux can not print wxMaxima session properly (it has problems in finding out how much space is needed to print a string). Starting with version 2.5.4 wxGTK can be compiled with support for libgnomeprint (and libgnomeprintui) which has much better support for printing. Using this driver, wxMaxima can print correctly. So printing on Linux is only available if wxGTK has been compiled with support for libgnomeprint and libgnomeprint is found when wxMaxima is started. UPDATING ========= ** Linux When you update maxima or wxMaxima, you should delete the file .wxMaxima in your home directory. ** Windows To update maxima or wxMaxima, you should: - uninstall wxMaxima - uninstall maxima (if updating maxima) - install maxima (if updating maxima) - install wxMaxima (in a subdirectory of maxima, see section CONFIGURATION)
