I'm trying to use Mathematica 9.0 in sage. I selected mathematica in roll-down menu and I have it installed and working (math script that calls MAthKernel) in Ubuntu.

Yet sage complaints that Mathematica is not installed: RuntimeError: Unable to start mathematica because the command 'math' failed.

math is currently working in the terminal and it is in the standard PATH (/usr/local/bin).

Also writing mathematica(cos(x)), for instance, doesn't work with sage selected in roll-down menu.

Any ideas of what am I missing here?

This has been noticed and discussed on sage-support. Seems WRI is acting up again... Can you downgrade to Mathematica 8 ?

@Emmanuel, is there a follow up to your answer? I have Mathematica 10.3 and I have the following error "unable to start mathematica"
