http://ask.sagemath.org/question/25437/install-offline/?answer=25438#post-id-25438In general, the procedure is: download the file `dot2tex-2.8.7.tar.bz2`. Don't extract it, just put it in the `upstream` directory of the Sage installation. Then run `sage -i dot2tex`. For this particular package, there is actually a problem: the tar file is outdated. You need to download the current one at http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/vbraun/upstream/dot2tex-20120520.tar.bz2. I've reported the problem, also.Thu, 08 Jan 2015 10:11:06 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/25437/install-offline/?answer=25438#post-id-25438Comment by kcrisman for <p>In general, the procedure is: download the file <code>dot2tex-2.8.7.tar.bz2</code>.
