It is stupid but I found out the problem. The problem was... that I had not installed
maxima! I did not notice that there was a separate required package, maxima. I think the
proper solution for this would be to make wxmaxima to check if maxima is installed.
I am sending this email because I suspect that all users with the similar problem do not
know of the existence of maxima.
