Well, by definition, NO user will ever manually compile a source code.
The fricas binaries I downloaded worked, but an average user has to
figure out how to proceeed with the tar file.
I think it's one of the first things any Linux user learns.
--- Texmacs has a built-in fricas plug-ins. Problem here: texmacs is
kicked out of debian because of dependency on guile.
TeXmacs and its FriCAS interface work fine (though I prefer the ascii
repl - TeXmacs is slow on long formulas). It's trivial to compile
guile-1.8.x and TeXmacs-1.99.6.
--- The project fricas_jupyter (with binaries) looked interesting but
one is required to have binaries compiled with SBCL 1.2.x .
Unfortunately the official released binaries are made with sbcl 1.1.1
so I dropped this solution.
WHAT? Both versions are ancient. The current sbcl is 1.4.4, and I use it
everywhere. When a new sbcl appears, I compile it, and re-compile FriCAS
