I'd really like if the developers of Apophysis would provide official binaries for Linux in the form of debs or rpms, I tried compiling it myself but have no idea how to compile pascal on Linux, even though I found the correct compiler and the first libraries. (When I realized that I couldn't compile pascal, I didn't bother checking)
it's not practical to compile apophysis for linux.
instead you should just try qosmic, which is native:
@ dsavi (or anyone else interested),
Here's a fractal generating application that may interest you designed for use on a Linux box. It's called Gnofract 4D.
I haven't tried compiling it, but it runs well on WINE. I've got ubuntu linux 9.04 on a netbook and been using apophysis on here all day, haven't seen a single problem.

I'm curious what version of Apophysis your running under what version of Wine?
Hi Visible Spirit, I've been using Wine 1.0.1 and Apophysis 2.02, and just today tried 2.09 and also found it to be working well on Wine. I don't have as much experience with this version as to be able to say that it's working flawlessly like it is with 2.02 though.
Thanks for the reply. I'm going to try Apophysis under wine soon. I played with it some time ago when I used to use Windows, but that's not the case anymore. And admittedly, …I miss Apophysis.
If you haven't tried , I recommend giving it a try as well. A bit of a different layout compared to Apophysis and not as configurable. It's more guesswork via digital dials for the x-y planes and the like, vs Apophysis' detailed calculations sidebar), but *definitely* produces some nice fractals with a little effort. A nice app to play with all the same that *can* produce some outstanding Fractals with a little patience.
BTW, if you haven't seen relative to Apophysis v2.0.2 and Windows, it's worth a look. It's related to a installer file that may or may-not be a trojan called gert0.dll. The trojan has the same name as a legitimate Windows library file but doesn't seem to be very widely known. Could be a new threat to watch for if one uses Windows or passes Windows files around etc.. ???????????? All the same, an interesting thread/observation.

Compile Apophysis for Linux
Is it possible to compile Apophysis (http://sourceforge.net/projects/apo-mods-jk/) for Linux?
The Program (written in Delphi) uses 4 external libraries:
1) Scripter Studio (http://www.tmssoftware.com/scriptstudio.htm): for this Pascal Script for Delphi could be a replacement
2) XML Parser (http://www.destructor.de/): there should be one for fpc
3) Indy Internet Components (http://www.indyproject.org/) (?)
4) Portable Network Graphics Delphi (http://pngdelphi.sourceforge.net/) (?)
Depending on the code: how tied it is to windows? If there are a lot of calls to Windows API functions then the chances are low.
And for the library dependencies:
1) If you say Pascal Script can replace it, then no problem
2) No need, fpc has one builtin
3) There's a Lazarus package, just search the wiki
4) No need, fpc has one builtin
