When I was using Maple 2015, I can start Maple in Linux Mint Sarah, if Maple 2015 was installed in another Linux Distribution (that is, like Debian Jessie), as follows. Suppose I have installed Maple 2015 in /home/programfiles/maple/maple2015, which is the location in Debian Jessie. Start Linux Mint Sarah, then mount the /home partition of Debian on the mountpoint /debian-home. Now copy the file /debian-home/programfiles/maple/maple2015/bin/xmaple to be xmaple-a, and change the path in xmaple-a. Then copy the file /debian-home/programfiles/maple/maple2015/bin/maple to be maple-a, and make some changes in maple-a. Then open a terminal, run the command ./debian-home/programfiles/maple/maple2015/bin/xmaple-a. Thus I can start Maple2015 in Linux Mint Sarah, althought I have reinstalled Maple 2015 in Linux Mint.
But the problem occurs, when I upgrade to Maple 2016, together with Linux Mint from Sarah to Serena, because the method above does not work. It gives information saying that the Host ID is wrong. But when I start Debian Jessie, I can start Maple 2016, and it works very well. So, what should I do to start Maple2016 in Linux Mint Serena, without installing Maple2016 in Mint, because I have installed in Debian?
