Novell Networks

FLEXlm does not run on Novell or IPX/SPX. Follow these instructions to install the license manager on any network that is exclusively a Novell environment.
  1. Install TCP/IP on all client machines.
  2. Select a Windows computer that has TCP/IP installed to act as a license server and run the license daemons on it.


UNIX or Mac OS X Network Licensing

Select one of the following licensing schemes.

Maple 10 Only

Start the License Manager Daemons

Before you can use Maple 10, you must start the license server.  It is recommended that you do not run lmgrd as root because any process run by root is a potential security risk.

1. Navigate to the location of the FLEXlm utilities for your operating system. By default, /usr/local/maple10/FLEXlm/UNIX/$PLATFORM where $PLATFORM corresponds to the operating system running the license manager.
2. Start the license manger daemons.

Using the C Shell
On 64-bit Linux platforms, you must enter the following command before starting the license manager daemon:

setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1

To start the license manager daemon (lmgrd), enter the following command at the prompt:

lmgrd -c license_file_path -l debug_log &

where license_file_path is the full path and filename of the network license file (by default, /usr/local/maple/FLEXlm/maple10.lic); and debug_log is the name of a file to which debugging information is written. The -l option (letter l, not the number 1 (one)) creates the file.

Using the Korn or Bourne Shell
On 64-bit Linux platforms, you must enter the following command before starting the license manager daemon:

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

To start the license manager daemon (lmgrd), enter the following command at the prompt:

nohup lmgrd -c license_file_path -l debug_log 2>&1 &

Daemons Run on Startup

To have the daemons run on startup, edit the appropriate boot script (such as /etc/rc.boot, /etc/rc.local, or /etc/rc2.d/Sxxxx). For example, if you run lmgrd as a boot startup script, you can run it as a regular user by using the following su command at the prompt:

su username -c 'umask 022; path/lmgrd -c license_file_path -l path/log'

where username is a non-privileged user; path is the correct path to lmgrd, license_file_path is the network license file, and log is the debug log file. It is recommended that the network license file be called maple10.lic.

Maple 10 and Previous Releases of Maple

To run previous releases of Maple as well as Maple 10, place all Maple license files in the same directory. If you have other FLEXlm license files stored in one central location, you can store the Maple license files there as well. Note: This does not apply to releases prior to Maple 6.

Complete the following tasks.

Task 1: Stop the License Manager

  1. Go to the location of the FLEXlm utilities that are currently being used. For Maple 9.5, the default location is /usr/local/maple9.5/FLEXlm/UNIX/$PLATFORM where $PLATFORM corresponds to the operating system running the license manager.
  2. Enter the command

    ./lmdown

Task 2: Move all Maple License Files to a Common Directory

    Copy all the Maple network license files to the license folder of your Maple 10 installation, by default, /usr/local/maple10/license.

Task 3: Start the License Manager Daemons

  1. On 64-bit Linux platforms, you must enter the following command before starting the license manager daemon:

    Using the C shell: setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1

    Using the Korn or Bourne shell: export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

  2. Navigate to the location of the FLEXlm utilities for your operating system. By default, /usr/local/maple10/FLEXlm/UNIX/$PLATFORM where $PLATFORM corresponds to the operating system running the license manager.
  3. When starting license manager daemons, you must enter the path to the directory containing all license files. By default /usr/local/maple10/license.
    Note:
    Point to the directory only, not an actual license file.

  4. To start the license manager, enter the following command:

    ./lmgrd -c /license_file_path -l /debug_log

    where license_file_path is the full path to the directory containing the license files.

You can now use both Maple 10 and previous releases of Maple.

How to Start Maple

Maple 10 provides users with two worksheet interfaces (graphical user interfaces) and a command-line (text-based) interface. By default, worksheets open in the enhanced and more modern Standard Worksheet. The Classic Worksheet, available on Windows and some UNIX platforms, has the traditional Maple worksheet look and uses less memory. In Windows, you can change the Maple worksheet file association using the Worksheet File Association Selector application from the Tools folder of the Maple 10 Start menu.

If your system has less than the recommended amount of physical memory, it is suggested that you use the Classic Worksheet version of Maple 10.

Standard Worksheet Maple

You can start Standard Worksheet Maple in either Document mode or Worksheet mode. Use the one best suited to your needs.

Document mode allows you to start solving problems right away, without needing syntax or Maple commands. You can freely combine text and math to produce presentation-quality mathematical documents.

Worksheet mode is most familiar to users of previous versions of Maple. Enter commands on an input prompt to get results and you can still format your worksheets into presentation-quality documents using all of the new features of Maple 10.

Windows

To start Standard Worksheet Maple 10 in Windows:

  • Double-click the Maple 10 shortcut icon from the desktop, if available, or select the Maple 10 program from the Start menu. (If you installed Maple in the default location, from the Start menu, select Programs, Maple 10, then Maple 10.)

Macintosh

To start Standard Worksheet Maple 10 on a Macintosh:

  • Double-click the Maple 10 icon in the Application folder.

UNIX or Linux

The Standard Worksheet is available on Linux (32- and 64-bit versions), Sun™ Solaris™, IBM® AIX®, and HP®-UX.

To start Standard Worksheet Maple 10 in UNIX:

  • Modify your command search path to contain your Maple 10 directory (for example, /usr/local/maple/bin) and execute xmaple or execute the full path (for example, /usr/local/maple/bin/xmaple).

Classic Worksheet Maple

Windows

To start Classic Worksheet Maple 10 in Windows:

UNIX or Linux

The Classic Worksheet is available on most UNIX versions (not available on 64-bit Linux versions). A command-line flag is required to start the Classic Worksheet on UNIX versions.

To start Classic Worksheet Maple 10 on UNIX or Linux machines:
  • Modify your command search path to contain your Maple 10 directory (for example, /usr/local/maple/bin) and execute maple -cw or execute the full path (for example, /usr/local/maple/bin/maple -cw).

Command-line Maple

The Command-line version of Maple has a text-based user interface. While allowing complete access to the mathematical engine, the Command-line version of Maple requires less system resources. For more information, refer to the Command-line Maple section of the readme.txt file located in your Maple folder.

Shared Kernel Mode

In the Standard Worksheet interface, all worksheets have independent kernels, that is, definitions and packages available in one worksheet are not available in other worksheets in that Maple session. The Shared Kernel version of Maple allows all worksheets to share the definitions.

To start Maple 10 for Windows in Shared Kernel mode:

  • If you installed Maple in the default location, from the Start menu, select Programs, Maple 10, then Shared Server Maple 10.
  • Alternatively, you can change this setting from the Options screen of the Tools menu item. This setting will take place the next time you start Maple.

To start Maple 10 for UNIX or Linux in Shared Kernel mode:

  • Modify your command search path to contain your Maple 10 directory (for example, /usr/local/maple/bin) and execute xmaple –km s or the full path (for example, /usr/local/maple/bin/xmaple –km s).
  • Alternatively, you can change this setting from the Options screen of the Tools menu item. This setting will take place the next time you start Maple.

To start Maple 10 for Macintosh in Shared Kernel mode:

  • Change this setting from the Options screen of the Tools menu item. This setting will take place the next time you start Maple.

How to Customize Maple

You can configure Maple to operate in a way that best suits your environment.

How to Change the User Mode or Directory

In Windows, you can run Maple in one of two user profile modes.

  • Use Single User Mode when only one person is using Maple.
  • Use Multiple User Mode if more than one person is using a single copy of Maple. Multiple User Mode enables all licensed users to log in and run Maple using their own default settings.

How to Change the Working Directory

In the Windows version of Maple, you can change the working directory by creating a shortcut to Maple 10 and assigning it a different directory.

To change the working directory, follow these instructions.

  1. Create a new shortcut for Maple.
  2. Right-click the shortcut icon and select Properties.
  3. Change the Start in field. (For Windows NT, click the Shortcut tab to locate the Start in field.) The directory listed in the Start in field is the working directory when you start Maple using the shortcut key.

At start up, Maple searches the current working directory for a custom initialization file. It stops searching when it finds the file. For more information, see How to Execute Commands Automatically.


How to change launch options for Standard Interface on Windows

The Standard Worksheet interface reads the ini file bin.win/launch.ini, if present.  The directives recognized are as follows (# is allowed to specify a comment).

# set maximum Java heap size
maxheap=700m

# additional args to pass to Java
java_args=-Dfoo -Dbar

# additional args to pass to Maple
maple_args=-q

# popup dialog showing the startup command (for debugging)
showcmd=true

# enable the Java access bridge (accessibility)
jaccess=true

# disable directX
java2d_nodraw=true

# set default language
language=Fr

# set default browser
browser="c:/Netscape"

Note: Optimal values are used in the launcher.

How to Execute Commands Automatically

You can configure Maple to automatically execute a series of commands on start up. This approach is especially useful for setting global variables, such as Digits and Order. To do this, create a Maple initialization file. For more information, refer to ?worksheet/reference/initialization in the Maple Help System.

How to Enable the MATLAB Link

MATLAB® is an interactive programming language for general scientific and technical computation.
