    I just downloaded it and tried. (I didn't know about it). It is poorly packaged. (May be, the version 1.0 will be packaged properly).

    In order to run, it (for example, the AWT GUI), do the following:

    Change to the directory where JMathLib_0.9.4-all.zip (or the downloaded version) is unzipped.
    Type the following:
    Code:
    java -cp bin jmathlib.ui.awt.GUI
    Here, I am assuming that, you have "java" in your path. If you have installed java using Yast (or openSUSE RPMs), it must be there in your path.

    Thanks for the tip, it is in usr/share/docs but not working, there something wrong with the Package, we tried on Fedora it is running! These math engineering software non of them runs well on SuSe! Even though it is one of the best Linuxes around!

    No, I am sure that you can make it run on openSUSE

    Please follow the steps below:

    (1) Log in as a user (root not needed) and see if java is working.
    For this, go to the command line (CLI) and just type java followed by enter key. You should get something similar to the following:
    Code:
    Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
               (to execute a class)       
       or  java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
               (to execute a jar file)           
    
    where options include:
        -d32          use a 32-bit data model if available
    
        -d64          use a 64-bit data model if available
        -server       to select the "server" VM           
    ...
    ...
    If you don't get this, let me know so that we have to fix this issue first.

    (2) Make a directory, say jmathlib, and unzip the downloaded jmathlib package there.
    Code:
    mkdir jmathlib
    cd jmathlib
    unzip <path-to-the-downloaded-location>/JMathLib_0.9.4-all.zip
    (3) It will have a bin directory under it. So, change to that directory and run it. (Class files are under it).
    Code:
    cd bin
    java jmathlib.ui.awt.GUI
    You should get the interactive screen of MathLib at this point.
