I am a first-time user of sage, so please excuse me if the following question appears stupid to you more experienced users: I want to do some calculations on Darmon points, and for that purpose, I want to use the following package on sagecloud: https: // / mmasdeu / darmonpoints

I installed it, but I cannot do any calculations with it. For instance, if I type the following command

sage: darmon_point(7,EllipticCurve('35a1'),41,20)

it answers: Error: No module named 'util'. Thanks in advance.

I concur that there are no obvious instructions on the site. Probably you just download the whole thing and then run in that directory.

In general, do not check the "community wiki" box when asking questions. The "community wiki" feature is for questions about ask-sage itself, rather than questions about Sage.

I agree with @kcrisman: you download it and run Sage from that directory. Then you do

%runfile darmonpoints.sage

and if you're me, you get

RuntimeError: unable to start magma

Looking at the README.rst file, I see

For most operations one does need to have Magma installed, although we do hope that in the future Sage will include the required functionality.

I have Magma installed.
