script assumes that /bin/sh is bash

Bug #70655 reported by Nat Tuck on 2006-11-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
texmacs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: texmacs

The maxima_detect assumes that /bin/sh is bash. Since that isn't true in Ubuntu 6.10, the script doesn't work. I suggest that it call /bin/bash, since that tends to actually be bash.

Which versions of Ubuntu and texmacs are you using? Also, what error message do you get?

Changed in texmacs:
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info

I'm using Ubuntu 6.10 for amd64. The texmacs deb shows as version "1:1.0.6-8".

Thanks but can you outline the steps required to re-create the error?

Nat Tuck (nat-ferrus) wrote :

1.) apt-get install texmacs maxima
2.) Run texmacs
3.) File -> New
4.) Insert -> Session -> Maxima

At that point it'll insert something that isn't a maxima session and complain about "package 'maxima' not declared".
