WXMAXIMA ========= wxMaxima is a document based interface for the computer algebra system Maxima. For more information about Maxima, visit http://maxima.sourceforge.net/. wxMaxima uses wxWidgets and runs natively on Windows, X11 and Mac OS X. wxMaxima provides menus and dialogs for many common maxima commands, autocompletion, inline plots and simple animations. wxMaxima is distributed under the GPL license. wxMaxima is included with the Windows installer for Maxima. Packages are available for many Linux distributions. If you wish to compile wxMaxima from source, read the instructions below. BUILDING WXMAXIMA FROM SOURCE ============================== To build wxMaxima from sources you need to have a c++ compiler and the wxWidgets library installed. Compiling on Mac OS X ---------------------- On Mac OS X you should install XCode. To build wxMaxima open the Terminal application and follow the instructions for building with gnu autotools. It is recommended that you compile you own version of wxMac. See the section about compiling wxWidgets. Compiling on Windows --------------------- On Windows install MinGW (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/). In the installation process make sure you select g++, "MSYS Basic System" and "MinGW Developer ToolKit" in the "Select components" page of the installer. Then run MinGW Shell and follow the instructions for compiling wxWidgets and wxMaxima with autotools. Compiling wxWidgets on Mac OS X and Windows -------------------------------------------- Before compiling wxMaxima you need to compile the wxWidgets library. Download the source, unarchive and in the source directory execute mkdir build cd build On Mac OS X configure wxWidgets with ../configure --disable-shared --enable-unicode and on Windows with ../configure --disable-shared Now build wxWidgets with make You do not need to install the library with make install. You will need to specify a path to wx-config when configuring wxMaxima. There are two files in build/lib/wx/config. The correct file to use is inplace-msw-ansi-release-static-2.8 on Windows and implace-mac-unicode-release-static-2.8 on Mac OS X. You will also need to copy the file wxwin.m4 to acinclude.m4 in the wxMaxima source directory. Compiling with autotools ------------------------- If you are building from git, execute ./bootstrap first. To build wxMaxima on Linux execute ./configure make sudo make install To build wxMaxima on Mac OS X and Windows first execute ./configure --with-wx-config=<path to wx-config> make cd locales make allmo cd .. On Mac OS X you should build an application bundle: make wxMaxima.app On Windows execute make wxMaxima.win which builds the directory structure necessary for running wxMaxima.
