It’s been a while since I used Geogebra.
I see they now have a web based version.

They also offer a rpm and a “linux portable” version:

I also found
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:

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.


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
This is apparently because the Tumbleweed package is named libmpfr6 and provides,
even though the version is 4.

    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.

    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.

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.
