    Looking for a Calculator

    I need a calculator that retains all calculations so I can scroll back through them for reference. So I took the first one I found, "Genius Math Tool". This does the job, but I wonder if there are other choices. I should add that this is being used for simple math (no formals). Here is an example of what I mean:

    You can run python from your terminal in Ubuntu just by typing the word python after the bash prompt.
    You can use it for math and it looks almost identical your screencap.

    If you want to install IDLE for python from Ubunu Software Center you can also run python.
    Then if you want to get more advanced you will have the option to save your formulas into scripts.

    Genius also has a terminal version, didn't like it.

    But this, I like the simplicity and just looks better

    Maybe someone else has a better idea, but I think this one will be hard to beat.

    Thanks

    You're welcome.
    I'm not certain how much you already know, but there are lots of excellent tutorials about how to use python and IDLE.
    I found the series of YouTubes from The New Boston, (by Bucky Roberts) helped me get off to a flying start, Python (43 Videos) - The New Boston
