Installation (EN)

So 02 Oktober 2016


  • First of all: you'll need Maxima, pyMaxima works fine with Maxima version 5.10.0 to 5.28
    Note: without Maxima, pyMaxima won't work!

  • Python (vers. 2.4 to 2.7) including Tkinter might be useful.

  • On win32 (Win 2000, Win XP), pyMaxima requires the Python for Windows Extensions

  • If you like the 3D-pygeo drawings, you must install VPython and PyGeo (Numerical Python is bundled with VPython)
    Note: PyGeo does not work with VPython 6. You have to use the older version VPython 5.
    Note: The installation of PyGeo is limited up to Python 2.7
    You have to install the following package, if you are using Python 2.5 to 2.7:

  • Unzip in a subdirectory

  • On Linux: fix the entries in the configuration file linuxInit.conf in the subdirectory ./init.
    Call python in the shell.

  • On win32: fix the entries in the configuration file winInit.conf in the subdirectory ./init.
    Click on and don't close the black window in the back!
