Just purchased as Raspberry Pi 2. Was very excited to see a light version of Unbuntu (Ubuntu Mate) available for the Rpi recommended on the Raspberry Pi website. Ubuntu Mate looks very promising, however I have not been able to install Mathematica via "sudo apt-get install..."
I am assuming that the install scripts check the OS and not the hardware???
Is there a way to install Mathematica on the Raspberry platform from the Ubuntu Mate OS? I'd hate to have to switch back to Raspbian just to run Mathematica occasionally.
I'm a very long time Mathematica user. Been using it since it first came out, version 1.0 on a unix box 1987/1988. As a Mechanical Engineer I've done some very amazing things with it, (it will sing and dance for me). Unfortunately, I seem to use it more at home than work. Many employers are reluctant to purchase it for me, (less than half).
I'm a big fan of the software.
