One way to do that in the terminal, from the sage-8.1 directory, is to run the command sudo ln -s `pwd`/sage /usr/local/bin After that, from any location, running sage will launch Sage. You can also start other software shipped by Sage. Namely, sage --gap sage --gp sage --ipython sage --maxima sage --R sage --singular will respectively run the versions of GAP, PARI/GP, IPython, Maxima, R, Singular, shipped by Sage. If you then also run this command in the terminal: sudo sage -c "install_scripts('/usr/local/bin')" then you will be able to start these other programs directly by: gap gp ipython maxima R Singular (if these commands already existed in your system, they will not be overwritten). -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "sage-support" group.
