This program was implemented on a computer with the following Linux distributions: (Debian based) Mint, Ubuntu, (Redhat based) openSUSE, centOS, (Pacman based) Arch Linux, Manjaro.
Note: With Mint, Ubuntu and openSUSE the display is a few chars wider than the screen. Also, with ArchLinux and Manjaro 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.
