Based on the C.a.R. (Compass and Ruler) project, CaRMetal includes all of its functionalities - or almost. It propose a different approach from the graphical interface point of view.

  • Ruler and compass constructions can be changed by dragging one of the basic construction points. The construction follows immediately. The student can check the correctness of the construction and gain new insight.

  • Tracks of points and animated constructions can help to understand geometric relations. Tracks can be used as new objects to explore.

  • With the macros of C.a.R. very complicated constructions become possible. Macros are also a way to organize the geometric thinking.

  • Hiding construction details and using colors make constructions clearer to read. In C.a.R. lines and circles can also be reduced to the relevant points.

  • Arithmetic computations, numerical solutions, curves and functions go beyond classical constructions. It is even possible to construct in 3D using advanced macros.

  • Other geometries, hyperbolic or elliptic, can be explored.

  • Scripting (javascript based) of figures.

This is the Gtk interactive geometry software. It allows one to create geometric figure plus the interactive manipulation of such figure in respect with their geometric constraints. It is usable in teaching situation with students from primary or secondary level.

Dr. Geo comes with a complete set of tools arranged in different categories:

  • points
  • lines
  • geometric transformations
  • numeric function
  • macro-construction
  • DGS object - Dr. Geo Guile Script
  • DSF - Dr Geo Scheme Figure, it is interactive figure defined in a file and evaluated with the embedded Scheme interpretor, awesome!
  • Export facilities in the LaTeX and EPS formats

Several figures and macro-constructions examples are available in the /usr/share/drgeo/examples folder.

More information about Dr. Geo can be found at its web site http://www.gnu.org/software/dr_geo/dr_geo.html

Installing the drgeo-doc package is also encouraged to get more of Dr. Geo.

GeoGebra is a dynamic geometry system. You can do constructions with points, vectors, segments, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards. On the other hand, equations and coordinates can be entered directly.

Support for many geometric constructions is provided, as well as support for many elementary calculus-based tools (derivatives, osculating circle, ...).

GeoGebra files can be exported in many different formats, or as interactive applets for web pages.

This package contains the KDE thumbnailer for the GeoGebra file format.

CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) makes the most important of the solutions and methods developed in computational geometry available to users in industry and academia in a C++ library. The goal is to provide easy access to useful, reliable geometric algorithms.

This package contains the header files and static libraries for libCGAL.so, libCGAL_Core.so, and libCGAL_ImageIO.so. The header files and static libraries for libCGAL_Qt5.so can be found in the package libcgal-qt5-dev.

Geometry::Primitive is a device- and library-agnostic system for representing geometric entities such as points, lines, and shapes. It provides some simple objects and many convenience methods you would expect from a simple geometry library.

This package extends the MatGeom functions for Octave, a scientific computing software. It is useful to create, transform, manipulate and display geometric primitives in 2D. It also contains functions for performing boolean operations between two polygons and to manipulate files in SVG and gmsh formats.

This Octave add-on package is part of the Octave-Forge project.

This package contains several different Rubik's cube solvers, either useful directly on the command-line or through sagemath.

Michael Reid's "optimal" uses pre-computed tables to find an optimal solution to the 3x3x3 Rubik's cube.

Dik T.Winter's "dikcube" uses Kociemba's algorithm to iteratively find a short solution to the 3x3x3 cube.

Eric Dietz' "cubex" has fast non-optimal solver for the 3x3x3 cube.

Packaging has started and developers might try the packaging code in VCS
