    Default Geogebra

    It's been a while since I used Geogebra.
    I see they now have a web based version.
    https://www.geogebra.org

    They also offer a rpm and a "linux portable" version:
    https://wiki.geogebra.org/en/Referen...sic_6_versions

    I also found https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...ation/geogebra
    but it seemingly hasn't been updated in 4 years.

    I'm just curious if anyone else uses this program,
    and which of the above they have been using.

    I've a few Java apps on my Linux box, so I go for geogebra5 package from GeoGebra official repository:
    https://wiki.geogebra.org/en/Referen..._5_for_Desktop

    However, I don't like the fact they have bundled JRE in the package, because I've already got system-wide OpenJDK and Oracle installations which should work for any Java app.

    Thanks!

    Yes; bundling java is odd.

    I've used the new web version, and found the performance to be better than expected.

    I tried installing the Classic 6 rpm, but zypp complains about there being no libmpfr.so.4
    This is apparently because the Tumbleweed package is named libmpfr6 and provides libmpfr.so.6,
    even though the version is 4.

    Code:
    Information for package libmpfr6:

        The MPFR library is a C library for multiple-precision floating-point
        computations with exact rounding (also called correct rounding). It is
        based on the GMP multiple-precision library.
    Provides       : [3]                                                     
        libmpfr.so.6()(64bit)
        libmpfr6 = 4.0.2-1.1
        libmpfr6(x86-64) = 4.0.2-1.1
    Reportedly you can just ignore the dependency or create a symbolic link.

    I decided to try the portable version, which works, but needs a few packages installed.

    Code:
    zypper in gconf2 dconf gsettings-backend-dconf
    I've since switched to Classic 5, which seems to be the desktop version.
    Classic 6 appears to be a "mobile friendly" version with online sharing built in.
