A Physics Simulator That Works In Ubuntu

  1. Jun 9, 2010 #1
    I'm looking for a program that simulates physics systems in Ubuntu. I tried using Step but it's a KDE system, and I've been having a lot of issues with it hanging up and crashing. My searches thus far have pulled up nothing. Does anyone know of any good programs other than Step?

    Hi Lancelot59
    Have you looked at Scilab? The simulator 'Scicos' runs under scilab, and it's all well-supported freeware.

    That looks quite good. I'll definately give that a try.

    I also found a program called Phun which looks fairly simple to use.
