I don't really understand why, but I tried declaring sagetex in my preamble using an absolute path i.e /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/sagetex/sagetex and it worked! it gave me an error, but even better, when I went back to using just \usepackage{sagetex} it was able to compile, no problem. I even tested a new document just to see if it would work on other files, and it appears to do so. Not sure why, hopefully I don't have this problem again.

yeah I wanted to test this myself so I installed a local copy of the latest gnuplottex.sty file into /usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/gnuplottex/. Works fine after sudo texhash.

In looking a bit deeper in the latex directory trees for each of my machines, I noticed something. For the machine that DOES compile sagetex is installed under

/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/sagetex/sagetex.sty

whereas for the machine that does NOT compile, sagetex is installed as per the 'make sagetex known to tex' page in

/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/generic/sagetex/sagetex.sty

I'm confused as to why the directory structure provided by sagetex documentation doesn't work, while a directory structure from what looks like my default texlive install does.

Hi all,

So I've spent some time installing sage 5.12 on my machine (Ubuntu 12.04.3) and been trying to edit a latex document using sagetex that worked fine on another computer. I've found that despite copying

SAGE_ROOT/sage/local/share/texmf/tex/

to

/usr/local/share/texmf/

and running

sudo texhash

I get a compile error. To be clear, I have a single sagesilent block and a single sagestr{} block, and the document compiles on my other machine. I have found that simply copying 'sagetex.sty' into the document directory will work, but this is not the permanent solution I was hoping for. I'm really confused because both my machines are running the same linux OS, so there should really be no difference between them. Any thoughts?

Thanks
