11.1 GUI installation

As xasy is written in the interactive scripting language Python/TK, it requires Python (http://www.python.org), the Python Imaging Library (http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/), and the tkinter package (included with Python under Microsoft Windows) be installed. Fedora Linux users can either install tkinter with the commands

yum install tkinter
yum install tk-devel

or manually install the tkinter, tix, tk, and tk-devel packages.

Pictures are deconstructed into the PNG image format, which supports full alpha channel transparency. Under Microsoft Windows, this requires Python 2.7.4 and the Python Imaging Library:

http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.4/python-2.7.4.msi

http://effbot.org/downloads/PIL-1.1.7.win32-py2.7.exe.

On UNIX systems, place http://effbot.org/downloads/Imaging-1.1.7.tar.gz in the Asymptote source directory, and type (as the root user):

tar -zxf Imaging-1.1.7.tar.gz
cd Imaging-1.1.7
python setup.py install
