This program was implemented on a computer with the following Linux distributions: Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, openSUSE, Debian, centOS, Arch Linux and Manjaro. The Arch Linux version will also work with Gentoo, but you may need to add a library via terminal command ‘emerge media-libs/jpeg:8 ‘.
Note: With Mint, Ubuntu and openSUSE the display may not quite match the screen. Also, with ArchLinux the calculator is only executable from the command line. With all others double-clicking the icon starts the program. I’m looking at it, but it should be noted that with each installation there are some unique peculiarities in spite of the fact that the same fltk libraries are used with all installations. For the most part, these programs were compiled under the default GUI with IDE Code::blocks.
