Based on their description "I have three applets a console, a shell, and a notebook" that sounds like Windows or maybe OSX (not sure). They mentioned something about sty files and Latex, so I assume the question has something to do with sagetex so I updated the title of the question. Please correct me if I'm wrong though. @EnlightenedFunk please specify clearly what you are trying to do, what you tried exactly and what exactly your result was.

I'm not familiar with the setup you are using but to use sagetex, latex your example.tex file. This will create a .sage file. Next, use the Sage terminal to load the .sage file. The file not found error sounds like you're running Sage on the wrong directory so try cd (change directory) to the directory containing your .sage file when using the Sage terminal. Finally latex your .tex file again. You can find more detail to this answer by looking at an answer posted by DJP here. The easiest way, however, to get up and running with LaTeX, Sage, and Sagetex is with a free Cocalc account. Just create a .tex file, copy/paste example.tex into it, and then compile and you're done.

If they're on Windows they might also be having some path-related confusion, though I'd have to see the exact problem, and yet they never followed up so we may never know...
