I'm not sure whether this was the case right after the Trac installation or as the result of some misconfiguration. Below is a screecapture of a wikipage in the edit mode, where the standard WYSIWYG controls (expected to be present just above the text input in the left corner) are missing.

enter image description here

In an attempt to solve the issue, TracWysiwygPlugin was installed, but this has not changed the situation.

What could be the reason for missing WYSIWYG controls and how could it be fixed?

For me, it boiled down to jquery.js not being found - manually creating the symlink resolved the issue.

I have upgraded to Trac 0.12 (was 0.11.7) and everything returned to normal.
