I am coming back to Sage after a long time. Working under Windows, I used Sage under VirtualBox without particular problems. Now I see that there exist direct Windows binaries, but with some limitations (e.g. it is not possible to install further packages). So I tried to also download the latest SageAppliance, but I noticed that, while completely absent in many mirrors, in some of them there is still at maximum the old 8.1.ova. So I would like to ask if the virtual appliances are not more maintained, and if for Windows it is mandatory to use the binaries, with the present limitations.
Thanks.AntlabThu, 12 Sep 2019 14:49:45 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/47860/displaying png in sage-8.1.ova VirtualBox notebookhttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/45732/displaying-png-in-sage-81ova-virtualbox-notebook/Hi
As I encountered freeze and slowdown issues with the W10 upgrade version 1809 and the version generated by SageMath-8.6-Installer-v0.4.1.exe for W10, I got back to my sage-8.1.ova version with VirtualBox.
but when I execute the code below, nothing happens !, no error message either. And the image does not appear.

I have been writing down exactly what I have done, which I plan to provide the community as a tutorial when everything is working. The problem is that I don't have a lot of experience with Linux, and so I'm basically hacking and slashing, as I can't find any documentation for how the appliance was configured or how to add LaTeX to the already-configured TeX install.
My question is, what's the best way to add functionality? Where should I install new things?
As an example:
I wanted to start with LaTeX. Sage seems to have it's own environment with a working TeX, but it can't find pdfLaTeX for printing a notebook. I tried installing with yum, but CentOS installs an incomplete version that doesn't have a TeX package manager, so I can't add the missing LaTeX packages. I built LaTeX from source and it worked, but when I tried to install Ruby, yum installed the default LaTeX anyway, which then broke printing from jupyter using pdfLaTeX because it now found the one yum installed without the needed packages and ignores mine. I want to add pdfLaTeX to the preconfigured TeX environment in Sage so that Ruby and other languages can find it.
I'd build a box from scratch, but I cannot duplicate the functionality of jupyter notebook (where it comes up as a server for my host box) installing things from source, so I am trying to configure the pre-packaged ova, and since Sage is set up to be self-contained there, I cannot get things installed through yum to find the things installed in Sage. What am I doing wrong? Or was this not really something the ova was designed for?jordana309Mon, 13 Nov 2017 15:13:16 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/39520/How can I most easily configure the SageVM?http://ask.sagemath.org/question/39519/how-can-i-most-easily-configure-the-sagevm/I am working the with most recent Sage virtual box (ova) appliance, and I am trying to install LaTeX and all available kernels.

Ctrl F1 is ok for going in terminal window but Ctrl F2 does not allow me to quit terminal mode !
the only way I find is to Off/On the VM Which is a little bit long !.
on the other hand how do I open the pdf tutorial in the VM ?
(I copied the tutorial PDF in /sage/home/sage/SageTuto).
I found Sage very very complicated, I m not sure to continue with it.

SyntaxError: invalid syntaxlivvy94Wed, 04 Jan 2017 07:29:30 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/36168/Notebook access in Sage 7.3 via Oracle VMhttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/35253/notebook-access-in-sage-73-via-oracle-vm/I am a new Sage user. I have been experimenting with Sage 7.3 on my Windows laptop using Oracle VirtualBox (Version 5.1.6 r110634). When I initialize Sage in Jupyter, the only way I have been able to use the notebook version is to first open a saved Jupyter Sage document I named Initialize_Notebook_Sage.ipynb and then executing the command **notebook()**. From that point, the application resets (after a short delay) and I have access to previously saved Sage Notebooks with the interface I expected. I tried to access notebooks through a browser using http://localhost:8080, but was unsuccessful.
While this workaround gets me to the desired interface, it is not the most elegant. Is there a way to access the Sage Notebook directly from the Jupyter screen or from the VirtualBox screen?
Thanks in advance for your help.srobbertTue, 25 Oct 2016 14:22:31 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/35253/How to open jupyter in virtualbox from shared folder?http://ask.sagemath.org/question/34983/how-to-open-jupyter-in-virtualbox-from-shared-folder/If I install the SageAppliance in windows, the jupyter notebook is started automatically with some internal folder as the base directory. I would like it to start from a custom folder on a shared drive, i.e. a local folder that I enabled for sharing with the virtual machine. Could anyone give me a tip how to do this. In other words, I want to first cd into that shared folder and only then start the jupyter notebook. Is there a way to do that automatically?
Thanks a lot!

I downloaded sage-7.0.ova and I imported it in VM Virtualbox. <b>What are the next steps?</b>
Using http://localhost:8000/home/admin within my browser doesn't work, as it did up to sage-6.10.ova. <br>
The information on https://wiki.sagemath.org/SageAppliance isn't helpful. <br>
Also https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/sage-support/CacnfZbIGiI didn't give much information.
Are these the steps for Sage-7.0 for Windows / VM Virtualbox? <br>
1) load sage-7.0.ova as normal in VM Virtualbox <br>
2) Go to http://localhost:8000/tree within your browser <br>
3) On the top right select New and than SageMath 7.0 <br>
4) You see at the top Jupyter Notebook Untitled <br>
5) You have to select Run instead of pressing Enter to perform a command <br>
<b>If so, how to upload my *.sws files?</b>
Thanks for answering.

I am very new to SageMath and Virtual machine.
I am using Windows 7 64bit and Oracle Virtual machine. I run Sage 6.7 as is describe at http://wiki.sagemath.org/SageAppliance. My problem is, when I use Host (RCtrl) + F1 i will get to shell. I run sage from shell so far so good.
What i should do to get back to web interface?
RCtrl + F2 do not work (however F7) but no code will be in web interface.
If I run notebook() I have following message
The notebook files are store in:sage_notebook.sagenb
Another server Sage Notebook is running, PID 1497
sage:/usr/bin/xdg-open: line 402: htmlview: command not found
