Clear message

Welcome to the MOTU Science team. We are responsible for the upkeep of science packages within the Universe repository. Check out the Science, Mathematics, and the Electronics sections of the repositories for packages that might fall under this category.



  • Make sure science packages are synced from Debian.
  • Make sure Debian knows what packages are in Ubuntu but not in Debian.
  • Make sure Ubuntu science packages actually work. Some need to be tested and bug reports need to be filed.
  • Package some of the programs found at, and UbuntuScience for inclusion into Ubuntu/Debian.

Ubuntu and Debian Packages

Ubuntu Natty

Packages we would like to include in Universe

These are programs that are not yet packaged for Debian/Ubuntu but would be nice to have:

  • FlowDesigner - "FlowDesigner is a free (GPL/LGPL) data flow oriented development environment. It can be used to build complex applications by combining small, reusable building blocks. In some ways, it is similar to both Simulink and LabView, but is hardly a clone of either." (Kyral is looking into this) -- Its in REVU now - (Kyral)

  • Kpl - a program for two- and three-dimensional graphical presentation of data sets and functions.

  • OpenClinica - is a web-based Clinical Data Management Software (CDMS) platform.

  • Magic VLSI - a venerable VLSI layout tool. [Tracked via bug #185434]

  • Alliance VHDL - a complete set of free CAD tools and portable libraries for VLSI design. (Package in revu already and review points closure in progress. REVU Link)

  • Toped - open source cross-platform IC layout editor, based on openGL and wxWidgets.

  • Netgen - Netgen is a tool for comparing netlists, a process known as LVS, which stands for "Layout vs. Schematic". This is an important step in the integrated circuit design flow, ensuring that the geometry that has been laid out matches the expected circuit. Note: This could cause a namespace pollution problem with another package with similar name already available.

  • IRSIM - Switch level simulator. (Uploaded already to Debian Mentors. Package link
