Sorry in advance if this question seem silly. But I need to learn how to do this. Here is my problem:
I have Sage installed from source in /usr/local/src. So every time I want to run Sage I have to type on the terminal
$ cd /usr/local/src/sage-5.4.1/
and once inside this directory, I have to type
./sage
How can I start Sage directly at the prompt $ just by typing "sage"?
Thanks a lot for the answer.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9650/running-sage-from-the-commad-line-in-ubuntu-1204/?answer=14396#post-id-14396Open `$HOME/.bashrc` in a text editor and add the path to the `PATH` environment variable by adding this line to the file
export PATH="/usr/local/src/sage-5.4.1:$PATH"
Save the file and either open a new terminal, or type `exec bash` in the current terminal. Just `sage` should work now. You will need to edit the above line whenever you have a new Sage installation. This is a standard unix way of making things work without giving the absolute path to the commands. Search Google for `unix PATH` to learn more.Tue, 25 Dec 2012 13:11:53 -0600https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9650/running-sage-from-the-commad-line-in-ubuntu-1204/?answer=14396#post-id-14396Comment by Leon for <p>Open <code>$HOME/.bashrc</code> in a text editor and add the path to the <code>PATH</code> environment variable by adding this line to the file</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9650/running-sage-from-the-commad-line-in-ubuntu-1204/?comment=47195#post-id-47195I installed it to /home/leon/sage-8.8. How do I create a command `sage` that runs the program? I can't find `$HOME/.bashrc` in the home folder. Btw, I have Linux Mint Mate 19.1.Wed, 17 Jul 2019 03:53:41 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9650/running-sage-from-the-commad-line-in-ubuntu-1204/?comment=47195#post-id-47195Answer by jdioses for <p>I'm relatively new to Sage and to GNU/ Linux.

Great! I'll make a Google search to learn more about PATH. And thanks a lot!
