### in command mode plot3d not displaying - only says "Graphics3d Object"

• I use sagemath in a virtual machine (osboxes.org). To get a text copy of the output, and some latex and TikZ code it is convenient for me to use a linux terminal and launching something like

/home/osboxes/SageMath/./sage /FilesSage/GSphereShowTest.sage | tee /FilesSage/GSphereShowTestOutput.txt

the problem is I do not have a 3dplot: the terminal only states "Graphics3d Object".

• To simplify I tried just

/home/osboxes/SageMath/./sage /FilesSage/GSphereShowTest.sage

to no avail.

• There is already a question with a similar problem (plot3d not displaying - only says "Graphics3d Object"?!) but the solution does not apply. Here there is no max min.

The same test works without any problem with a sage terminal

The test code is just:

G=sphere((0,0,0),1)
show(G, viewer='jmol')
print 'say Hello'


What should be done to get access to the viewer in a linux terminal?
