I installed maxima @5.30.0_0+xmaxima. By itself, the command-line maxima works (so far) as expected.

When, instead, I start xmaxima from the command-line, I get two windows — Xmaxima: browser and Xmaxima: console. If I double-click one of the highlighted lines in the Xmaxima: browser window, then the output appears in the Xmaxima:browser window, and both the input and corresponding output appear in the Xmaxima:console window as well.

But I cannot type any input directly into the Xmaxima: console window. Shouldn’t I be able to do so? And, if not, how can one enter input of one’s own (instead of just evaluate what’s in the prepared html page showing in the Xmaxima:browser window?
