Subject: axiom on Knoppix and graphical facility
Message-ID: <address@hidden>

I had installed axiom (3.0 beta, Feb, 2005) on Knoppix Linux with TeXmacs and 
other plugin software. But the "draw()" seems not to work, for instance as 
insput the following within TeXmacs:

   Compiling function %D with type DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat
   Graph data being transmitted to the viewport manager...
   AXIOM2D data being transmitted to the viewport manager...

   (1)  TwoDimensionalViewport: "sin x"
                                                 Type: TwoDimensionalViewport

But no picture was created. Does draw() still not work in this verion? Anyway, 
Axiom is excellent CAS and I will introduce this in my calculus class.

There is no identifying information in this post so I cannot help you directly.

I suspect the problem is that the axiom interface module is calling AXIOMsys
(the actual axiom interpreter) rather than the axiom shell script. The axiom
shell script starts the 'sman' (superman) process which starts AXIOMsys, the
hyperdoc browser, and the graphics connection. If you call AXIOMsys directly
then graphics will not work.

Please open a command terminal, set your AXIOM variable and PATH variable,
and type 'axiom'. Then retry the draw command. Please let me know if this
succeeds or fails and send a message to the address@hidden
mailing list.
