I have follow the instructions according with the sage tutorial guide for install SageTex and for "LaTex to know Sage", to being able to use SageTex on MacOS, but although it's recognize the sage.sty file when I compile a document on each part of sage it displays "??", I have no more ideas what to do, I have use a lot of differents versions of Sage but no one works.

Typesetting with LaTeX and SageTeX

Given a document something.tex using SageTeX, the steps for typesetting are:

  • one round of typesetting with latex

    for instance with this terminal command:

    $ pdflatex something.tex
    

    This produces a file something.sagetex.sage.

  • one round of running Sage on that file

    for instance with this terminal command:

    $ sage something.sagetex.sage
    

    This requires sage to be somewhere in your PATH.

    This prepares all the Sage output for the next round of typesetting.

  • two rounds of typesetting with latex

    for instance with this terminal command:

    $ pdflatex something.tex
    $ pdflatex something.tex
    

    This produces the desired file something.pdf.

What if sage is not in my PATH?

Here is one way to get it there.

  • start Sage

  • in Sage, run this command:

    sage: !sudo ln -sf $SAGE_ROOT/sage /usr/local/bin
    
  • type in the password for your user account on your mac

  • quit Sage
