### calling maple

I am trying to get maple to work inside sage. I have maple installed and in .bashrc I made an alias to run ./maple from where it is installed when I type 'maple' in terminal, and it works fine:

~\$ maple

|\^/| Maple 16 (X86 64 LINUX)

But when I run a maple command inside sage, for example

sage: maple('2+2')

it returns a TypeError and tells me that I should install maple. I read the documentation here and it says I should have a script called maple and put it in PATH in order to be able to run maple in sage. What I don't understand is where is the PATH. I tried the sage_root (sage installation folder), and home folder. None seem to be working.

Has anyone got this to work, and how?
