I used 'sudo apt-get install sagemath' in the ubuntu shell to get Sage. However, it installed version 8.1 of Sage.

I would like to install a version of Sage that has automatic syntax highlighting/coloring like version 9 has.

Anyone know how I can do this? I need to do it using the command line only (see below).


Some additional context:

I installed sage on ubuntu 18.04 on windows 10 using its Linux bash shell . I'm able to access the Sage running on Ubuntu (on Windows) by going to localhost:8080 on chrome (in Windows).

You can download a SageMath 9.0 binary for Ubuntu from here. To install it, simply do

tar jxvf sage-9.0-Ubuntu_18.04-x86_64.tar.bz2
cd SageMath
./sage -n jupyter
