Dear Constantine,

OK, thats also what I use. I don't know the state of he art of graphics, in
fact. It seems that it works on linux, but I didn't try it out.

I don't have texmacs, I use emacs. As far as I know, graphics doesn't have
anything to do with texmacs. More information on using Axiom with TeXmacs:

As you are running linux, it might be that your installation is broken. The
page above says, that it should work "out of the box". Maybe you installed
TeXmacs before axiom?

I found that programming in the maxima language was a pain. However, maxima is
wonderful, if you like programming in lisp. In this case, you can program in
lisp and use all the available Maxima functions. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend
it as a programming tool.

I don't have any, sorry. You'll have to ask the maxima people.
