What does ``Work Properly'' mean. I never use Sage as an app but rather as a packaged way of getting sage and sagetex.sty using symlinks as noted. I have NO problem running that way. When I start up SageMath.app (yes, I renamed it) it opens a couple of web pages; is that what it's supposed to do?

Good Luck,
