What works

Almost everything

- Installer

- Mathematical computations

- 2D plots

- Printing

- Help

- Tutorials

What does not

3D plots

- They cause the whole KDE desktop to go black with only the mouse cursor being visible, but can be recovered by pressing or

Toolsbars "Standard", "Formatting", "Controls"

- They are not displayed correctly, using "customise" on them shows only separators instead of icons, which can be manually corrected, but this is not persistent/gone after restart


What was not tested

  • GPU:
