Qalculate, http://qalculate.sourceforge.net/index.html, and its library (libqalculate) are built using glib and GTK+ or KDE for the GUI which are pain in the ass on OS X.

I managed to port the libqalculate library to OS X using Cocoa classes to replace the glib functions and other patches. Everything works except date parsing from a string.

Only OS X >= 10.6 and 64-bit are supported. I can only test on 10.7.4.

I also patched the command line interface of Qalculate, qalc.cc, and i'm working on the native GUI, in Cocoa.

Feel free to contact me

  • Great calculator! I had to configure it a little to work on OS X the way I want it to. It throwed warnings about currency even though I had wget installed. It also throwed warnings when executed from somewhere else than it's directory. I have installed it in ~/bin/qalcbin and added this script in ~/bin which is in my PATH: #!/bin/bash qalcf() { local mypwd=`pwd` cd ~/bin/qalcbin echo `./qalc -nocurrencies -t $@` cd $mypwd } qalcf $@
