To install, nothing more than a standard Sage install. The spkg-check script will exit without actually testing anything if it cannot find “latex” in your path.


To use SageTeX, both Sage and LaTeX need to know about it. SageTeX comes standard with Sage, so you only need to make sure LaTeX can find what it needs. Full details are in the Sage installation guide at and .

The directory $SAGE_ROOT/local/share/doc/sagetex contains documentation and an example file. See $SAGE_ROOT/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/sagetex for the source code and some possibly useful scripts. If you have problems or suggestions see the sage-support group.

If you want to help develop SageTeX, please clone the github repository (see the “Upstream Contact” above) and send me patches based on that.

Equivalent System Packages


$ conda install sagetex


However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because using Python site-packages is not supported by the Sage distribution; see
