Mathematica 6
Mounting iso
One way to mount the Mathematica .iso is to create /media/iso and add the following line to the fstab:
/location/of/mathematica.iso /media/iso iso9660 exec,ro,user,noauto,loop=/dev/loop0 0 0
Now you can mount it with:
mount /media/iso
Running the Installer
You can start the installer by navigating to:
/Unix/Installer
Run MathInstaller with:
sh ./MathInstaller
Fonts
Add the directories containing Type1 and BDF fonts to your FontPath.
Troubleshooting
If you have font rendering problems where certain symbols do not show up (i.e. "/" appears as a square), try uninstalling font-mathematica.
Also, try this solution.
Mathematica 7
Mathematica 7 is much easier to install.
tar xf Mathematica-7.0.1.tar.gz cd Unix/Installer ./MathInstaller
Follow instructions.
For KDE users, the Mathematica icon may appear in the Lost & Found category. To solve this, execute the following as root:
# ln -s /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged /etc/xdg/menus/kde-applications-merged
Mathematica 8.0.4.0
On 64-bit machines, two known issues are present; but solutions are provided. The second issue is present on 64-bit installs: but not yet confirmed on a 32-bit arch setup.
The first issue assumes you are trying to use nVidia, CUDA and OpenCL libraries within Mathematica.
The 64-bit archlinux nVidia and opencl driver packages install libraries in /usr/lib
, not in /usr/lib64
as does nVidia's binary installer. This is not a problem: /usr/lib
is the correct location for 64-bit libraries on a 64-bit arch system. However, a 64-bit install of Mathematica will assume the drivers are installed in /usr/lib64
; other distributions that Mathematica has been tested on have their drivers in that location. The easiest method to overcome this is to make a symlink from /usr/lib64
to /usr/lib
. Mathematica will be able to find nVidia, CUDA, and OpenCL libraries this way without further tweaking.
A second, separate but partial solution, is to set the following environment variables:
export NVIDIA_DRIVER_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so
export CUDA_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/libcuda.so
This second method, however, still will not permit Mathematica to find the OpenCL libraries in /usr/local
as Mathematica seems hardwired to find them in /usr/lib64
.
The second issue with Mathematica 8 in 64-bit archlinux (may also affect 32-bit environments; but not tested) is a reproducible crash when performing WolframAlpha[] functions. By default, Mathematica is configured to detect the system's proxy settings when configuring how to connect to the internet to fetch data. A "bug" exists that will eventually crash Mathematica when the calling library is used. A workaround is to avoid this library call altogether by configuring Mathematica to "directly connect" to the internet. (Edit > Preferences > Internet Connectivity > Proxy Settings). This bug has been reported to Wolfram.
Mathematica 9
Install mathematica^{AUR} from the AUR. The Mathematica_9.0.1_LINUX.sh installation script is required.
