2014-10-29 11:28:27 -0600 commented question How can I install a Sage package on Sage Cloud?

I also never had cause to install a Sage package locally. That only came up in the context of Sage Cloud. Installing a whole local copy of Sage just for one tiny package seems too much, but maybe I'll just go that route in the future. Regarding ore_algebra: I think the installation went find, but I found out that ore_algebra is not compatible with Sage 6.3 yet. So I'll just use a local installation...

It is also possible to install Sage packages when installing a local copy of Sage in the project directory as explained here: https://github.com/sagemath/cloud/wiki/FAQ#-question-i-want-to-use-my-own-custom-built-from-source-copy-of-sage-takes-hours But is it necessary to install a local copy? Is there a simple way to use local packages with the system-wide Sage? (Making system-Python work with local/user packages works fine as explained in the above comment.)

To install a sage package (e.g. the package "ore_algebra") from within a SMC project, I first tried running

install_package("ore_algebra")

but I got an error message that told me to do

sage -i ore_algebra

from the terminal instead. This I did and then got the error message

~$ sage -i ore_algebra
tee: /usr/local/sage/sage-6.3.beta6/logs/install.log: Permission denied
tee: /usr/local/sage/sage-6.3.beta6/logs/pkgs/ore_algebra.log: Permission denied
Attempting to download package ore_algebra
>>> Checking online list of optional packages.
[.]
>>> Found ore_algebra-0.1
Error: no write access to packages directory .

which is obvious since, I do not have write access to the global packages directory.

So the question becomes: How can I install Sage packages in the home directory of the current project on Sage Cloud?

currently, on sage cloud, this gives the error: ImportError: No module named sage_extension
