#2642 installing maxima and wxmaxima

wxmaxima (20)


I have installed maxima and wxmaxima.

Maxima version:"5.31.2"
Maxima build date:"2013-10-14 19:14:25"
Host type:"x86_64-unknown-Linux-gnu"
Lisp implementation type:"CLISP"
Lisp implementation version:"2.49(2010-07-07) (build 3575122160) (memory 3590759670).

I cant open wxmaxima neither from launcher nor from dash.

Trying to start maxima from terminal I get hhe message:"WARNING: Maxima is unable to set up the help system.
(Details: CL-INFO::LOAD-PRIMARY-INDEX: LOAD: A file with name /usr/local/share/info/maxima-index.lisp does not exist)"

As when openning wxmaxima I get this message "wxmaxima: relocation error: wxmaxima: symbol _Z31_wx_link_dummy_func_gnome_printv, version WXU_2.8 not defined in file libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0 with link time reference"

    Is there anything I can do to have wxmaxima working properly?

    I hope you were able to get this working. Many of the Maxima developers don't use wxMaxima, and wxMaxima is actually a separate project, so that's probably why you didn't get a response here. Sorry about that.

    I'm closing this as wont-fix since it's several years old.
