2019-06-01 10:27:31 -0600 asked a question Clean binary from /usr/bin after uninstall

Hi, I am working on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

After an unfortunate experience with the package version of sage, which I installed via apt-get, I decided to install Sage from source. Then, I ran sudo apt-get remove sagemath, but after the removal, I still have a binary in /usr/bin/sage : is it ok to replace it by the binary which I compiled, using a symbolic link ?

Hello, I built Sage from source, now the sine function works and I get a plot. I guess downloading a binary from apt-get is not adapted, I guess it makes sense to compile, seeing so many powerful low level libraries at the base of Sage

hi sorry for the delay, I installed SageMath using apt-get install on Ubuntu 18.04. Actually I did that recently and know my kernel does not even start. I cleaned all pythonpath and pythonrc from my bashrc. I'm posting the error next :

I did not import anything, however it does seem that the python sin function shadows the sage sin function. I'll try installing sage 8.7 and see if something changes

I have been using Sage for a few months. Up to now, plotting, polynomials, and arithmetic functions have been running fine.

Now I'm trying to use the symbolic calculation skills of Sage, but ... I am getting the error : "unable to simplify to float approximation" when running, for instance :


on a locally hosted jupyter notebook running the SageMath 8.3 kernel. My OS is Ubuntu 18.04.

Same error in pure Sage :

sage: var('t')
sage: sin(t)
