Geogebra Classic / 3D on Linux

V.A. Krasnovsky shared this question 2 days ago


If i understand correctly, Geogebra Classic 6 includes the marvelous 3D graphing capacity, which i currently use via the web version.

However, I have to mitigate home internet outages, so...

How to install the Classic 6, or specifically the 3D graphing calculator, on Linux (debian based PureOS)?

I am new on Linux, so pls, if you could, do spell out the exact steps.

So far, i have downloaded the package to a directory of my choice under my /home/.

Let's call it A. So package is in .../home/A

What's next pls?

Thanks in advance,

If you are using a Debian bases OS you could use the package manager see the the notes here.

If you want to use the Linux Portable version you have to allow the chrome-sandbox some root permissions with:

cd GeoGebra-linux-x64
sudo chown root:root chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox

the last command starts GGb.


Hi Loco,

Thanks for your feedback.

Unfortunately, the Note instructions don't work out, due to unsigned repository;

apt.cache.FetchFailedException: W:GPG error: stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY C072A32983A736CF, E:The repository ' stable InRelease' is not signed.

I also noted the Notes comment, about the GPG key.

But what is the command, to add the repository GPG key?

Additionally, i hope not to need the repo, forgoing updates....

I thought i could just download the package, and install from my /home/A...

Is that possible?


Jup thats possible. You said PureOS? A fast search brought this to me. You can surely find tutorials on how to add and trust GPG keys too. I use Debian where it is done this way. The "problem" with GGb is that it is updated quite frequently to add features or patch bugs. So i would use a repository.
