First of all: you'll need Maxima, pyMaxima works fine with Maxima version 5.10.0 to 5.28
Note: without Maxima, pyMaxima won't work!
Python (vers. 2.4 to 2.7) including Tkinter might be useful.
On win32 (Win 2000, Win XP), pyMaxima requires the Python for Windows Extensions
If you like the 3D-pygeo drawings, you must install VPython and PyGeo (Numerical Python is bundled with VPython)
Note: The installation of PyGeo is limited up to Python 2.7 You have to install the following package, if you are using Python 2.5 to 2.7:
Unzip pyMaxima.zip in a subdirectory
On Linux: fix the entries in the configuration file
linuxInit.confin the subdirectory
python pyMaxima.pyin the shell.
On win32: fix the entries in the configuration file winInit.conf in the subdirectory
pyMaxima.pyand don't close the black window in the back!
