I just installed TeXmacs (version 1.0.6 on kubuntu), but I also have trouble getting it to work with axiom. Additionally,
it seems extremely slow, but maybe that's due to my laptop
showing its age.

Probably both. Even on a reasonably fast dual processor
AMD 4300+ X2, I find TeXmacs rather slow compared to most
other apps.

Oh that is a big issue. I haven't yet used TeXmacs again extensively, but this slowness in keyboard response was one of the reasons I turned away about one or two years ago.

Hi, TeXmacs developers, is there a trick to delay expensive computations until I press a button "re-beautify"? I don't need the screen output looking overly correct after every keystroke. After one sentence, or even a paragraph is completely enough for me. If I feel like working on a 8086 1MHz (not GHz) processor, then TeXmacs will not be of further consideration, no matter what features it has.

Hi Bill,

Can you tell me what you get if you just start tm_axiom
on the console? E.g.

  $ /usr/lib/TeXmacs/bin/tm_axiom

Reply to the weird looking prompt with an Axiom command,
e.g. 1+1

Eh? To what prompt?

woodpecker:~>type axiom
axiom is hashed (/home/hemmecke/software/Axiom/mnt/linux/bin/axiom)
woodpecker:~>type AXIOMsys
AXIOMsys is /home/hemmecke/software/Axiom/mnt/linux/bin/AXIOMsys
latex:\red Unexpected end\black5woodpecker:~>

I am getting back to the command line prompt. No axiom session started.
