wxMaxima 0.8.2

My latest offering: wxMaxima 0.8.2 for the Sharp Zaurus (pdaXrom):

...and the reason I wanted png support in gnuplot was to do in-line graphing with wxMaxima:

I have to say a big thank you to Ziga in the public forum of wxMaxima whose code change suggestion allowed me to compile this version of wxMaxima to run with v5.11 of Maxima. I also adjusted the source code of wxMaxima so that the initial window starts at 640X480 pixels. At the bottom of this post, I have included a ttf font that can be used to provide 'almost reasonable' Greek characters in wxMaxima. Put this font in your favourite place, and point wxMaxima at it via the Edit|Configure option.

This is kind of an interim release; I will be looking to bring Maxima up to date shortly, at which time I will re-compile and re-post wxMaxima.

To run wxMaxima, you need wxWdigets, and Maxima. I have included a download link for Wells Wang's wxWidgets ipk at the bottom of this post - just in case you don't have it. If you want to do in-line graphing, you need to be careful about the maxima.ipk you use; not all of the maxima.ipks I have come across support this. I have included a download link for yongun's maxima_5.11 which I do know supports in-line graphing, at the bottom of this post. To run Maxima, you need clisp, and libsigsegv. Once again, I have borrowed from yongun and included download links for the relevant ipks at the bottom of this post. For in-line graphing, you will need also to download and install most of the packages listed in the gnuplot 4.2.5 posting of Monday June 1st 2009 (phew). Enjoy:
