Launching Maple on a Unix machine

Question:

How can I launch Maple on a Unix machine?

Answer:

Maple 10 is installed on the ITS Unix system uts.cc.utexas.edu running Solaris 8. The Maple executables are not in the default command search path. You can add this directory manually to your path. If you are using the C-shell, type:

setenv PATH /usr/local/maple/bin:$PATH

If you are using the Bourne shell, type:

DISPLAY=/usr/local/maple/bin:$PATH; export PATH

The command above can be put at the end of your .cshrc (or .profile) so that it will be executed automatically. (Note: issue this command only after you have set your environment variables such as PATH and MANPATH.)

To start Maple, type:

maple

An X based version of Maple is also available. To run the X based version of Maple you must first allow the system on which you are running Maple to connect to your workstation or X-terminal. To do this, type:

xhost + Unix machine name

on your local workstation. Next, set the DISPLAY environment variable to point to your workstation or X-terminal. If you are using the C-shell, type:

setenv DISPLAY your local machine name:0

If you are using the Bourne shell, use:

DISPLAY=your local machine name:0; export DISPLAY

then you may run the X version of Maple by executing the command:

xmaple &

When Maple begins running, it will automatically execute the commands in the file .mapleinit in your home directory, if it exists.
