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
