# Can't get plotting to work

Downloaded sage-6.3-x86_64-Linux-Ubuntu_10.04_x86_64.tar.gz, expanded the archive file onto my Linux Mint 15 system.

I ran sage simply by typing: ./sage from the command line.

I then type the command: notebook() at the sage prompt to try out some simple plotting features. I get the following output from the command:

```
The notebook files are stored in: sage_notebook.sagenb

The browser window opens up, pointed to http://localhost:8080/home/admin/2/. I then created a worksheet and entered the following command:

```
circle((0,0), 1, rgbcolor=(1,1,0))
```

This results in the following traceback, and I cannot get any of the simple plots in the tutorial to display anything. Thanks for any help...

```
