In one of my worksheets I wanted to test Latex. I was directed to After reading a bit about it, I decided that I did not need it. But since this test, whenever one of my exercises launches I get the following message and nothing else. How to get rid of this? Thanks in advance for your time.

Error: PDFLaTeX does not seem to be installed. Download it from and try again. None

I'm running H. sapiens sapiens L., without any upgrades such as divination coprocessor or telepathic interface. Without any details about what you attempting, it's quite hard for me to guess if LaTeX is or not needed for it.

What in hell are you trying to do ?

Good evening, I do not use Latex.After being seen on the site I decided that I did not need Latex. I also tried bits of codes like

var ('z ')
print latex (z ^ 12)

to see what that gave. As said in my request I always get the following message.

Error: PDFLaTeX does not seem to be installed. Download it from and try again. None

What is serious now is that if I activate cells that already contain code that worked I still get this message and nothing else.

What is your operating system? What version of Sage are you running? How did you install Sage? Are you using Sage in the SageNB notebook or in the Jupyter Notebook?

Excuse me for the delay in answering you. I did a restoration of my previous work to the problem caused by the use of LaTeX, which I do not need, and everything is back to normal. Sorry for your lost time.
