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.

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
 macroconstruction
 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 macroconstructions 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

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 calculusbased 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 libcgalqt5dev.

This package contains several different Rubik's cube solvers,
either useful directly on the commandline or through sagemath.
Michael Reid's "optimal" uses precomputed 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 nonoptimal solver for the 3x3x3 cube.
