Hi there, Im new to SageMath and newer to Linux. I am running Fedora 26 and I've installed SageMath from the Fedora repository using the command line. When I execute the program I see a terminal like window open and close quickly then nothing else. I am not sure which Log file to look into to give you more information. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Which are the linux console answers when asking for the following informations... ?!

  • which sage (In my case it is /usr/bin/sage)
  • sage -h (the sage help)
  • sage -sh (This should start the sage shell in the same window. Type Control+D to exit.)
  • sage -v (This should show the version and quit.)
  • sage and this should really start sage.

All above commands should be typed and started from a command line window like xterm, konsole, ...

To install xterm, if not already there try as superuser yum install xterm.

(How did you execute the program exactly?!)

So I tried the above in terminal. I'm running version 7.6. when I try sage after sage -sh and sage -v I get an error: import error: no module named traitlets.config.application

Which sage returns: /usr/bin/sage

Hope this helps.

Could you try installing the Python module traitlets? (the package name should be python2-traitlets)

This is a known issue with the fedora package, see fedora bug report 1464520. It should be solved with

$ sudo dnf install python2-traitlets
$ sudo dnf install python2-backports-shutil_get_terminal_size
