11.1 GUI installation

As xasy is written in the interactive scripting language Python/TK, it requires Python (, the Python Imaging Library (, 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:

On UNIX systems, place 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 install
