    How do you make maxima show steps when evaluating an integral or anything else?

    Maxima: Maxima, a Computer Algebra System

    On Wolfram Alpha, I can just click "show steps", how do I do the equivalent in either the terminal or graphical version (or both) of maxima? (Using Debian GNU/Linux)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't believe you can, but I'm prepared to be proven wrong.

    (note WolframAlpha only says possible steps to obtain ... not that is how it did it)

    Thanks for your answer but are you telling me Wolfram Alpha is constantly making Mathematica evaluate different integrals (=each step) and that Mathematica does not have a a "show all steps" feature either? (because I don't see why Alpha would be superior to Mathematica given that it's free vs commercial)

    WolframAlpha does have a show steps option, but the steps it shows are not necessarily those it used.

    That doesn't matter to me. I just want to be able to see steps like in Wolfram Alpha whenever my internet is having problems or if I don't have any internet at all.

    There is something out there that does this sort of thing, but I don't reca;; what it is at present.
