Forgive me if I missed it somewhere... There is no calculator?
It just struck me as weird that there was no calculator included. Seems like such a basic tool. Almost like not including a text editor :P
Anyways that's my request...
I dunno if they've fixed the repositories already, but there was a time when you had to do:
apt-get install kcalc-kde3
because if you just specified "kcalc" then it tried to install hundreds of megabytes of shite to do with KDE4.
Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".
Just enter the interactive python interface and your all set as far as calculations. here are a couple examples:
Code:pc-tesla speedtest # python Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jan 4 2009, 17:40:26) [GCC 4.3.2] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> 5 + 4 9 >>> 5 ** 4 625 >>> 5 * 4 20
