Hi guys.

In sage 6.1.1 and earlier you can evaluate without problems

sage: %latex sage: This is {\LaTeX}

but in sage 6.2 (with VM or native linux) we get the error: Error: PDFLaTeX does not seem to be installed. Download it from and try again. None

This is a bug? Is sage-6.2 an incomplete installation?

(PDF)Latex is not part of Sage, but obviously some functionality depends on it. Install your distribution's LaTeX.

Thank you very much. But we can't modify Sage ova version for windows under VirtualBox. We can't install pdflatex in ova version for windows. Am I not right?

You can install anything in the virtual appliance, see Open a root shell and run "yum install texlive"
