Dear Joris,

can you fix also the old /bin/sh - /bin/bash problem, that still hampers the use of external mathematical programs in Ubuntu 8.10? See:
and also:

I know there was a long discussion about it. At the end of the story, I think there are two easy solutions:

1) change /bin/sh -> /bin/bash in the first row of all shell scripts in /usr/local/libexec/TeXmacs/bin/, that should still be good for all distributions;

2) do it in a distribution-dependent way, i.e. only for the Ubuntu and Debian package (although the problem is only in Ubuntu, there is usually a single package for both.)

Other solutions are more complicated.

Apart from the /bin/sh - /bin/bash problem:

The Octave plugin hangs TeXmacs at start. The fix is to change tm-start.oct and .octaverc in /usr/local/share/TeXmacs/plugins/octave/octave/ as follows:

gset -> __gnuplot_set__
LOADPATH=[[...,LOADPATH]] -> addpath([[...]])
PS1=... -> PS1(...)
PS2=... -> PS2(...)

to take into account changes in the Octave script language (that are listed by typing "new" at the Octave prompt). See:

Unfortunately, the list of broken plugins (at least in Ubuntu) is not exhausted here. I would like to contribute to improve the situation, is it ok to go on posting plugin-related patches here?
