I am running Ubuntu 12.10 i386 on Vostro 3500 dell laptop.

This is the error:

sage: notebook()
The notebook files are stored in: sage_notebook.sagenb

    423         return True


Any help of how to resolve this error will be greatly appreciated

I seem to remember encountering a similar error. If I remember well the culprit was Ubuntu Firewall which kept al ports (with the possible exception of port 80) closed. Since I'm not very worried about security questions I justed turned off the firewall:

sudo ufw disable

and restart the system. (Again: if I remember well. It might have been 'ufw -disable', so consult the help system).
