1 On all Unix platforms TeXmacs is preconfigured to automatically interface
with Axiom provided that "Axiom is installed":AxiomDownload and AXIOMsys is
accessible at the command line (is in the path). Of course this means
that you have to install "Axiom":AxiomDownload first.

2 On Windows, the "cygwin":http://www.cygwin.com version of TeXmacs will also
automatically interface with "Axiom for Windows" provided that the Path
enviroment variable includes the Axiom directory as described in AxiomDownload.
TeXmacs for cygwin on Windows is installed using the standard

  "cygwin setup
program":http://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/cygwin.en.html.

3 The "native windows":http://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/windows.en.html
version of TeXmacs does not require cygwin however, it does require the
separate installation of the TeXmacsAxiom interface program (tm_axiom) in
order to run Axiom. A new version of tm_axiom especially for Windows is
included in the "Axiom for Windows":AxiomDownload installation program.
On all Unix/Linux systems the most recent version of TeXmacs is
preconfigured to automatically interface with Axiom provided that Axiom is
"installed":AxiomDownload and AXIOMsys is accessible at the command line (must
be in the path). The current interface for Axiom has some known limitations
when formatting long mathematical expressions.
"Cygwin":http://www.cygwin.com is a Unixemulation environment for windows.
The "cygwin version of
TeXmacs":http://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/cygwin.en.html automatically
interfaces with "Axiom for Windows":AxiomDownload provided that the Path
enviroment variable includes the Axiom directory as described in AxiomDownload.
This path is set automatically by the "Axiom for Windows":AxiomDownload
installer program.
<b>The "native windows version of
TeXmacs":http://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/windows.en.html does not require
the installation of cygwin. A new version of the Axiom interface program
(called tm_axiom) written especially for Windows is included in the latest
"Axiom for Windows":AxiomDownload installation program. This will be used
automatically by the native windows version of TeXmacs.</b>
This new interface program is also recommended for use in cygwin. To check
that you are using the new program, in a cygwin shell enter the command::
$ which tm_axiom
If the response is::
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/axiom/mnt/windows/bin/tm_axiom.exe
(where the default location 'Program Files' might be different) then you are
using the new version. Otherwise make sure you delete or rename the older
version of tm_axiom and try the 'which' command again.
A new version of the Axiom stylesheet 'axiom.ts' is available in Axiom for
Windows which improves the formatting of Axiom output. The new stylesheet is
included automatically if you install the updated version of TeXmacs for
Windows from the Axiom website
"here":http://page.axiomdeveloper.org/wintexmacs1.0.4.4.exe
Otherwise to obtain this stylesheet, use Windows file manager to replace the
existing file in TeXmacs::
c:\Program
Files\wintexmacs\TeXmacs\plugins\axiom\packages\session\axiom.ts
with the file of the same name found in Axiom for Windows::
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/axiom/mnt/windows/axiom.ts
On cygwin the file 'axiom.ts' is located in the directory::
cd /usr/share/TeXmacs/plugins/axiom/packages/session
Overwrite existing stylesheet with the new stylesheet file::
cp /cygdrive/c/Program Files/axiom/mnt/windows/axiom.ts .
++added:
Troubleshooting
If you do not see Axiom in the list of sessions then make sure that you have
installed the latest versions of both "Axiom for Windows":AxiomDownload and
"TeXmacs":http://page.axiomdeveloper.org/wintexmacs1.0.4.4.exe .

 The following are examples of using TeXmacs with Axiom

 "Introduction to the AXIOM
book":http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/axiom/bookaxiomintro.tm

 "Axiom Tutorial":http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/axiom/tutorial.tgz.gz
Instructions are provided for "how to use the
tutorial":http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/axiom/tutorialREADME.txt
The following TeXmacs documents contain examples of how to use TeXmacs with
Axiom:
 The "Introduction to the AXIOM
book":http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/axiom/bookaxiomintro.tm is
available in TeXmacs format with embedded Axiom commands.
 The "Axiom
Tutorial":http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/axiom/tutorial.tgz.gz is included
in the Axiom for Windows installation program. Here are some instructions on
"how to use the
tutorial":http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/axiom/tutorialREADME.txt
