No MathJax?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38441/cant-get-typeset-equations-no-mathjax/ I installed Sage yesterday on Ubuntu. I downloaded the latest version from the website. When I enter formulas I just get an ASCII text. I thought that Sage was supposed to use MathJax to produce nice-looking typset formulas, but I see nothing of the sort. I have spent a lot of time searching for a solution and found nothing. I recompiled Sage, but that made no difference. The Sage distribution seems to include MathJax,
% cd path/to/sage
% find . -name mathjax
./local/share/mathjax
./local/share/jupyter/nbextensions/mathjax
./local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sagenb/data/mathjax
./build/pkgs/mathjax
I have looked through the documentation and through the UI and found nothing. Can someone please tell me what I need to do to make Sage look decent? I don't know if it matters, but I want to use Maxima. But the problem appears with the plain Sage backend too.
Cheers,

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38441/cant-get-typeset-equations-no-mathjax/?comment=38443#post-id-38443It's the Sage notebook. Not Jupyter, not CLI.
Typesetting is most definitely not working. I know that the MathJax files are there. I mentioned them in my post. But that doesn't change the fact that all my equations are just ASCII. There is also no error message.
Is there a way to use the Jupyter notebook? When I run `sage -n jupyter`, I don't see an option to switch to Maxima. I don't want to type %maxima on every single cell, of course.Sat, 29 Jul 2017 19:29:27 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38441/cant-get-typeset-equations-no-mathjax/?comment=38443#post-id-38443Comment by FrédéricC for <p>I installed Sage yesterday on Ubuntu.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38441/cant-get-typeset-equations-no-mathjax/?comment=38442#post-id-38442You need to tell us in what what you are interacting - CLI, sagenb, Jupyter, etc.?

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38441/cant-get-typeset-equations-no-mathjax/?answer=38455#post-id-38455Note that the Sage notebook is going to become obsolete and unmaintained. If your goal is to use maxima from a notebook, you can try to install the maxima kernel in jupyter, see https://github.com/robert-dodier/maxima-jupyter
It might be a good idea to ship this kernel as a Sage optional package. Do not hesitate to report success/failure/questions/... from your attempts.Tue, 01 Aug 2017 11:25:38 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38441/cant-get-typeset-equations-no-mathjax/?answer=38455#post-id-38455
