Did you read my original posting? That is how I installed Maxima on my
Mac. But only the wxMaxima app is installed in the Applications folder
when you do that (which may lead to users thinking that wxMaxima = Maxima).
There is a shell file that purportedly runs XMaxima, but it currently has
a bug (and in any case is not installed as a Mac application). There is
also a shell file that runs command-line Maxima. Both of these are buried
in the Application Resources folder and as far as I can tell not documented
