@xiota Right, I've added it now.

@xiota Thanks for the tip. I hesitated before, because there's no pyproject.toml, but it seems that it's reverting to using without issues.

@coxackie I don't think requires.txt was the problem to begin with, but I couldn't reproduce your issue. I hope this update to 6.0.4 coupled with the new installation method are enough to fix your installation. Otherwise, please let me know.

@vicp74 there seems to be a problem with a dependency check for pillow. Please take a look at The suggestion there to remove /usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/Mathics3-6.0.3-py3.11.egg-info/requires.txt actually gets the thing to run. Not sure how you want to go ahead with this issue...

Sorry to ask an off-topic question. How do you suggest to install other mathics tools like mathicsscript with pipx, if I already installed mathics with 'pipx install mathics3'? I am not so familiar with pipx.

Hi @Techcable,

Thanks for maintaining mathicsscript. This package here needs to be updated every once in a while to be made compatible with newer libraries version, just leave a comment and I'll be glad to do it ASAP. Other than that, your suggestion seems interesting, thanks.

I would personally consider installing via pipx. It fixes many dependency and versioning issues. It also takes advantage of precompiled wheels to avoid compiling things from source.

I used to maintain the mathicsscript AUR package but pipx is much easier. :)

The Distribution not found error apparently appeared again:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'sympy<1.11,>=1.8' distribution was not found and is required by Mathics3

I have python-sympy 1.11.1-1 installed.

Sorry about that, I assumed that 1.10 included that. It should be fixed now.
