hello, when i try to run sage i have got following response:

 sage Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/sagemath-8.3/src/bin/sage-ipython", line 9, in <module> from sage.misc.banner import banner File "/opt/sagemath-8.3/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/misc/", line 16, in <module> from sage.env import (SAGE_VERSION, SAGE_DATE, SAGE_VERSION_BANNER, File "/opt/sagemath-8.3/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/", line 186, in <module> "libSingular not found--a working Singular install in $SAGE_LOCAL " RuntimeError: libSingular not found--a working Singular install in $SAGE_LOCAL is required for Sage to work

Maybe I am wrong but i think it is caused by environment variables. Is there any easy way to fix it? I didn't get any error or warning during installation. Thanks for any reply!

If you could give details : What's OS ?

If you use the binary, just uncompressed it  and make a link

for example :

sudo ln -s  /home/user/sage/sage /usr/bin/sage (enter)

after that runing : sage -n=jupyter will open a notebook with sage capacity

There are several ways to get Sage running on Windows.
Which one did you use?
