# Wxmaxima does not work

Hi
Could anyone test this please
Open wxmaxima
Open the help
try some examples like
(%i1) factor(10!); 8 4 2
(%o1) 2 3 5 7
(%i2) expand ((x + y)^6);
6 5 2 4 3 3 4 2 5 6
(%o2) y + 6 x y + 15 x y + 20 x y + 15 x y + 6 x y + x
(%i3) factor (x^6 - 1);
2 2
(%o3) (x - 1) (x + 1) (x - x + 1) (x + x + 1)
It does not work for me.
Then I recompiled the package
apt-src install wxmaxima
cd wxmaxima...
fakeroot debian/rules binary
cd ..
apt-src install maxima
cd maxima...
fakeroot debian/rules binary
cd ..
dpkg -i *maxima*.deb
and everything works perfectly.
I am using
wxmaxima:
Installed: 0.6.5-1
maxima:
Installed: 5.9.3-1.1
I think the problem is more general than only for this single package. But I
would like some more clever people than me to verify it before making more
fuzz about it.

Gudjon
