Subject description: Computer Algebra System
 

Maxima

Is a Computer Algebra System based on Lisp. It has a long history and is among the leading Free and Open source math projects.

It needs gcl (Gnu Common lisp), gnuplot for graphics and tcl and tk (from packagemanger?) for the included basic IDE xmaxima.

DOWNLOAD
for new Puppy 5.3 slacko :
maxima-5.25.1-i486.pet
maxima_DOC-5.25.1-i486.pet

Alternativ: math-slacko.sfs

New Saluki
the package for 431 seems to work - even with wxMaxima Gui (gcl not needed)

MAXIMA HOMEPAGE
ARCHIV: There is an older package made in Puppy 431
MISC: maxima is also the CAS engine in the sage package.
It can be invoked from the sage subshell (sage -sh, maxima)
BUILD: I made a basic buildscript

Cool Take care, emil

Subject description: Maxima is fantastic
 

Emil,
I first heard about Maxima in one of your posts. After the ten-minute wxMaxima tutorial on Sourceforge (http://andrejv.github.com/wxmaxima/tutorials/10minute.zip) I was hooked. I am about to retire and lose my free access to Mathematica--I won't miss it now!
Thanks for making Maxima easily available in Puppy.

I tested maxima in the new Saluki. The new package of 5.25.1 I made for slacko won't run, but the older package I made on 431 seems to work fine - even with wxMaxima GUI
download and install
maxima-5.20.1-i486.pet
wxGTK-2.8.9-unicode.pet
wxMaxima-0.8.2-i386.pet

PostPosted: Tue 04 Mar 2014, 14:28    Post subject: wxMaxima for Fatdog  

wxMaxima-x86_64.sfs is available in Emil's collection of math software for Puppy. It includes
gcl, wxGTK, gnuplot, maxima and wxMaxima, all compiled for x86-64 using Emil's build scripts. I have tested in Fatdog 620 and 630, Lighthouse6.02 and Slacko64.

Before the first run, ldconfig must be run to find libraries.
Slacko64 requires also ln -s libtiff.so.3.9.7 libtiff.so.5 and ln -s libreadline.so.5.2 libreadline.so.6 in /usr/lib64.
wxmaxima runs as is. xmaxima requires tcl and tk packages (from Fatdog repo).

Edit: For new users, the 10 minute wxMaxima tutorial is included in /usr/local/share/wxMaxima/

Thanks to Emil for the scripts and for hosting the sfs!

Now running wxMaxima on Fatdog 630. Took a frustrating minute or two to discover I needed shift+enter to evaluate. Longer fight with precision before I got my standard numerical test right:

Code:
(%i1) log ((640320^3 + 744)^2 - 2*196884) / ( 2 * sqrt (163));
(%i2) fpprec : 50;
(%i3) bfloat(%o1);

3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693992821b0


The tutorial on using wxMaxima as a calculator would have shortened the process of experimentation.

Thanks again to emil!

the 'shift+enter' to evaluate can be set to just 'enter'.

I find it best to use .wxmx format for saving files.

The make the .wxmx run from roxfiler

1. add mime-type

Code:
#add mime-type (without using update-mime-database)
##simply appends type to mime description files
echo application/x-maxima:*.wxmx >> /usr/share/mime/globs
echo 50:application/x-maxima:*.wxmx >> /usr/share/mime/globs2
echo application/x-maxima text/xml >> /usr/share/mime/subclasses
echo application/x-maxima >> /usr/share/mime/types


2. right click on .wxmx file and select set run action and enter-

wxmaxima "$@"

Is this code showing how mime-types are generally added?

Could you please show another example, let's say for audacity, which uses the .aup extension for an xml file?

Maybe got a link to some more detailed information?

This is a simple way to a add mime-type (without using update-mime-database and the descriptions files, these have been removed from some Puppy versions).

Emil's repo of math stuff is gone. Sad I hope he makes it available somewhere else. In the meantime,
http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/sfs/700/wxMaxima-x86_64-700.sfs
Works in 600 series too.
