But in Jupyter, pdf latex is not available:

Error: PDFLaTeX does not seem to be installed.  Download it from and try again.
Latex error


/bin/sh: pdflatex: command not found

Here is the value of PATH:

There are some suggestions in this question.

However, the easiest thing to do might be to create a sagerc file per this page (I guess the default location is ~/.sage/sagerc) containing: export PATH = "$PATH:/Library/TeX/texbin/pdflatex"
