Testing Sugar 0.112

Please test, and report problems on sugar-devel@ mailing list, github.com/sugarlabs/sugar issues, bugs.sugarlabs.org, or the discussion page here.

To date there has been little independent testing of Sugar 0.111, and 0.112 is not yet released.

What should I test?

  • new features, see feature list,
  • bug fixes, see GitHub commits for bug list,

How to test?

Use the GNU standard autogen, configure, make, and make install steps.


We are waiting for Debian to package Sugar 0.111.


We are waiting for Debian to package Sugar 0.111, then it will be available in Ubuntu.


We are waiting for Fedora to package Sugar 0.111.


OLPC packages Sugar for OLPC laptops. People with OLPC laptops can test Sugar 0.111 now.

The OLPC Sugar packages contain extra commits:

  • remove frame animation, and transition box, as they are too slow for OLPC XO, but the changes were not accepted upstream,
  • manufacturing support (About my computer; CPU, disk, memory and wireless firmware specifications).

This makes the OLPC Sugar packages an incomplete test of Sugar 0.111, but sufficiently close to be useful to the community.

Ubuntu 16.04 on OLPC NL3

For OLPC NL3 laptops, using Ubuntu 16.04, use the OLPC packages, like this:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo service lightdm restart

Fedora 18 on OLPC XO

For OLPC XO laptops, using OLPC OS 13.x (Fedora 18), use the OLPC packages, and update only the Sugar packages to 0.111.olpc.x, like this:

sudo yum update sugar*
sudo service olpc-dm restart
