For so long, we didn't have a fancy calculator on Linux desktops, but now we have Pebbles.

Pebbles is a lightweight multi-mode calculator intended for students, scientists and statisticians. Even more,  it is completely free (Libre) open-source project with active development team of 5.

Although, Pebbles is built primarily for elementaryOS, other distro users can install it easily, especially on Arch Linux, Manjaro, Ubuntu and Debian. The only requirement to install it from source there is "vala" as an additional dependency.
