    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    One warning: don't try to use vim to edit the LinuxInstaller.bin file
    It will give you a corrupted file and error-message like this:

    Code:
    floris@homeros:/media/data/Downloads/maple$ ./installMapleLinuxSU 
    Preparing to install...
    Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
    Unpacking the JRE...
    
    gzip: /tmp/install.dir.14603/Linux/resource/vm.tar.Z: not in gzip format
    
    uncompress: /tmp/install.dir.14603/Linux/resource/vm.tar.Z: not in gzip format
    
    gzip: /tmp/install.dir.14603/Linux/resource/vm.tar.Z: not in gzip format
    The included VM could not be uncompressed (GZIP/UNCOMPRESS). Please try to
    download the installer again and make sure that you download using 'binary'
    mode.  Please do not attempt to install this currently downloaded copy.
    Suddenly the .tar.Z archives are corrupted? Eventually I discovered I corrupted them myself by trying to be smart and using vim instead of sed

    So, just do exactly as the first post states, then everything will be allright!

    Unhappy Re: HOWTO: Maple

    I am trying to see if others where I work can easily use Ubuntu on
    their computers, i.e. I do not need to hold their hands. One of the
    programs they need is Maple 10. I have tried to install and start
    Maple 10 on both ubuntu and kubuntu. The instructions here for installing
    work quite well.

    Unfortunately, Maple 10 will not start after the installation.
    Has anyone had and/or solved this problem?

    Can you elaborate on how it is failing to start? Keep in mind that most likely the maple executable is not in your path; so for example, if you installed maple to /opt/maple10, the command to run is
    Code:
    /opt/maple10/bin/xmaple
    not
    Code:
    maple
    I seem to have discovered a truly remarkable proof for Fermat's Last Theorem, which this siggie is too small to contain.

    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    The command I use is

    /usr/local/maple10/bin/xmaple

    for the installation directory /usr/local/maple10.

    The processes that are running are:

    xmaple
    maple
    Linux_shlibs
    processor

    Since there is no java running, I am wondering
    if Maple is not finding its java installation.
    On SUSE the processes are

    xmaple
    maple
    java
    mserver
    mfsd

    An addendum:

    It turns out that Maple 10 does not support the VIA C3
    processor under Linux and that is why it would not run. Even after
    removing the processor check, the Maple kernel does not start.
    Maple is trying to fix this for Maple 11.

    I followed this howto, as well as others I found on this forum, but with no success.
    I use kubuntu edgy and the installer returns the following output:

    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    I am trying to install maple 9 on Ubuntu 6.10, I followed the instructions, modified slightly for the file names in maple 9 distro disk, including commenting out the export LD... line, then when I went to install:

    cdw@vacqueyras:~/tmpmaple$ sudo sh installMapleLinuxSU
    Error: failed /home/cdw/tmpmaple/Linux/Linux/resource/jre/lib/i386/client/libjvm.so, because libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    When I installed maple 9 on ubuntu 6.06, I found it necessary to create the
    following link:
    sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

    unfortunately the /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so
    file is not available in my 6.10 distro

    Re: HOWTO: Maple

    The solution to the problem I described above is to load the tw missing packages and install them as described in:

    http://linuxcompatible.org/story35920.html

    then create the symbolic link, and the install runs smothly.

    When trying to install under KDE and SUSE 10.1 the

    sudo ./LinuxInstaller.bin

    command did not work for me. The sequence

    su
    ./LinuxInstaller.bin

    worked. Perhaps it will work for you.

    Another possible way to install Maple 10 is to use
    the console option. You can try

    sudo ./LinuxInstaller.bin -i console

    This is from MapleSoft.

    Good luck.
