This is a copy of a post I made at the comp.soft-sys.math.maple newsgroup:
I just installed the x86_64 version of maple 10 on my ubuntu linux desktop, but I can't figure out why xmaple won't run. Installing in the first place was a bit of a pain: I had to use the '-i console' parameter, and once it was installed, I had to chmod +x the executables and replace the maple10/jre.X86_64_LINUX/bin and maple10/jre.X86_64_LINUX/lib directories with links to my current java version's (1.5.0_06) directories. I had no problem activating, and plain old console 'maple' runs fine, but nothing happens when I try to run 'xmaple' or 'maple -x'. It just pauses for a second or two when I press return, and then ends. Now I know this distribution of linux isn't supported, but I don't see why it can't be made to work. Any suggestions?
