PyChing Does I Ching


PyChing Does I Ching

In continuation with our articles about fortune telling apps out there for linux and Ubuntu, pyChing is a program which allows you to ‘consult’ the I Ching.

The I Ching is an ancient Chinese book of wisdom, which, apart from being read as a book, has also traditionally been consulted as an oracle. pyChing allows you to perform an I Ching ‘reading’ using the coin oracle, and then look up a brief interpretation from the I Ching. Some further introductory material on the I Ching itself is also available from within the program.

pyChing has some great benefits which include saving/restoring of readings for use within pyChing, configurable colors, nifty coin animations, readings may also be saved as text for subsequent printing, information on the hexagrams cast are available within the program.

pyChing is copyrighted, freely available software published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

In older versions of Ubuntu and Debian based systems, you could install pyChing direct from the terminal. Not anymore. You will have to download the DEB file below and run it to install pyChing. When I get a moment or two, I’ll put it up on my server as well so there is a backup in case the link below ever goes offline.

For further information on pyChing head over to the official site…

I am a linux user for over 10 years and Ubuntu linux is my only operating system. I originally made the jump from Windows to Ubuntu and open source back in early 2007 (using Ubuntu 6.10) for privacy and virus concerns.
