Running Xubuntu 12.04 on an HP Compaq nc8430. 2 GB RAM. I installed Sage 5.9. I can get into the notebook interface and do some algebra and calculus. However, when I try to plot something, I get errors. Here's the traceback:

What's troubling me a bit is that I'm seeing some ubuntu 13.04 stuff in there. That's not ... (more)

You downloaded sage-5.9-linux-32bit-ubuntu_13.04-i686-Linux which strongly suggests that it's for 32 bit Ubuntu on 13.04. Linux distros are annoyingly fickle when it comes to these things. Do you think you could use the 64 bit ?

No, because I don't have a 64-bit system. Is there a Sage 5.9 for ubuntu 12.04 32-bit?

You can see this answer, which explains where your problem is coming from. Unfortunately, Sage does not provides binaries for 32-bit Ubuntu LTS (see also this sage-devel thread)

Hence, the remaining options seem to be:

Thanks for that info. I've opted for #3, because I ran into a severe package problem with wine, and this seems the path of least resistance. I might compile sage anyway, for speed.

Installed Xubuntu 13.04, and then compiled Sage from source. It took a very long time - in fact I let it go overnight. Hopefully, it'll be worth it in increased speed of use. Thanks again for your solution! I tried plotting, and it works!

Since you have Xubuntu 13.04, you can now use the binary without the need to recompile.

@tmonteil: True, although I was hoping for a speedup due to the compilation process being more machine-specific.
