This is a weird problem. Some times the command

show(LatexExpr(r"\text{Cette cellule ne génère aucun output}"))

is not worked properly and return \text{Cette cellule ne génère aucun output}. Is there a way to bypass this problem.

Unless you provide a way to reproduce the problem, there is likely no way to diagnose it.

I cannot give you more. Some times it happen sometime not. When I use sagecell I have no problem. Under windows it doesn't. I can send the complete notebook. But I cannot provide a short one.

This depends on the %display setting of Jupyter :

  • if simple, show will display a LatexExpr L as str(L)

  • if latex, it will display whatever Latex (more precisely MathJax, see Sage's documentation, which h&s some serious detail about this...) does with your LaTeX expression.


BTW, for the $N^{\text{th}}$ time :

  • Learn Python

  • Learn Sage

  • RTFM

  • Peruse prevous answers in this list/forum

  • Aim LaTeX questions to a LaTeX list/forum, Jupyter questions to a Jupyter list/forum

BEFORE questioning this list/forum with trivialities, FAQs or half-cooked non-questions. In the case in point, a very simple Google would have pointed you at this previous answer.

The time you have already spent asking such non-questions exceeds probably by a fat margin the time you would have spent learning yourself how to answer most of your previous questions by yourself... and I do not even account for the time spent arguing "I have no time for this learning".
