SAGE is probably what you need. It integrates maxima, Gap, NLT, 
Pari-GP, with python and scipy.

To install on debian-based systems (binary):
http://modular.math.washington.edu/SAGEbin/linux_32bit/sage-2.3-debian-i686-Linux.tar.gz

Or elsewhere:
http://modular.math.washington.edu/sage/download.html

Their blurb:
SAGE is free open source math software that supports research and teaching in algebra, geometry, number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, and related areas. Both the SAGE development model and the technology in SAGE itself is distinguished by an extremely strong emphasis on openness, community, cooperation, and collaboration: we are building the car, not reinventing the wheel. Our overall goal is to create a viable free open source alternative to commercial mathematics software.

SAGE includes the following core software:

Group theory and combinatorics 	GAP, NetworkX
Symbolic computation and Calculus 	Maxima
Commutative algebra 	Singular
Number theory 	PARI, MWRANK, NTL
Graphics 	Matplotlib
Numerical methods 	GSL, Numpy
Mainstream programming language 	Python
Interactive shell 	IPython
Graphical User Interface 	The SAGE Notebook
Versioned Source Tracking 	Mercurial HG

cheers,
Jan
