### Can't get typeset equations. No MathJax?

I installed Sage yesterday on Ubuntu. I downloaded the latest version from the website. When I enter formulas I just get an ASCII text. I thought that Sage was supposed to use MathJax to produce nice-looking typset formulas, but I see nothing of the sort. I have spent a lot of time searching for a solution and found nothing. I recompiled Sage, but that made no difference. The Sage distribution seems to include MathJax,

% cd path/to/sage
% find . -name mathjax
./local/share/mathjax
./local/share/jupyter/nbextensions/mathjax
./local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sagenb/data/mathjax
./build/pkgs/mathjax


I have looked through the documentation and through the UI and found nothing. Can someone please tell me what I need to do to make Sage look decent? I don't know if it matters, but I want to use Maxima. But the problem appears with the plain Sage backend too.

Cheers, Daniel.
