## Installation

### 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 don't show up (i.e. "/" appears as a square), try uninstalling the package "mathematica-fonts".
