After installing sage4.6.1 on ubuntu 10.10, all attempts to open the notebook server result in a request to change the admin password followed by an errno 13 permission denied. What should I do?

Could you give us the output of the following?

ls -la ~/.sage

In particular, the permissions of that directory and ~/.sage/sage_notebook.sagenb should allow you to read/write. You should also have permission to read/write the files inside ~/.sage/sage_notebook.sagenb.

Thank you. It was just as you thought--a permission issue. sage_notebook.sagenb was owned by root. After changing the owner to my user, the notebook opened with no problems.
