In order to run sage on a Linux OS you should:

**Download**the proper compiled version of sage.**Extract**the files.Once the files are extracted, enter to the created folder and

**give execution permission**to the*sage*file (this can be achieved by right-clicking the file -> Permissions -> click the*executable*box)Now

**double click**the*sage*file, and choose**run in terminal**. Depending of the Linux distribution this step could fail, in that case:Open a terminal

Move tho the

*sage*folder- Run the file with the command
`./sage`

Hope this would help you.
