Current "stable" squeeze release notes
The Debian wiki has a specific page for Sugar at Debian install Sugar
The Debian installer will install Debian to a hard drive, where Sugar has been tested to run well on Squeeze.
Sugar versions 0.84, 0.86. and 0.88 are offered on Squeeze.
Sucrose packages are usually updated in the unstable repository. These packages migrate to the testing repository after a while. You can see the current package versions here.
If you want up-to-the-minute freshness (and brokenness), you can use jhbuild to build from source instead of using the released packages.
For virtulalization and emulation see also Emulator image files.

"All packages that are included in the official Debian distribution are free...."
- Point Linux is a GNU/Linux distribution that aims to combine the power of Debian GNU/Linux with the productivity of MATE, the Gnome 2 desktop environment fork.

This was my workaround to this problem:
deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free deb-src ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
2. update the package database
sudo apt-get update
3. download the source code
cd /tmp mkdir pygobject apt-get source python-gi
4. install dependecies
sudo apt-get build-dep python-gi sudo apt-get install python-gobject-2-dbg
5. compile python-gi
cd pygobject-3.2.0 wget -c http://mkaufmann.com.ar/~humitos/olpc/pygi-d37680bb9390426f7f58ea3d352c3e5e2106e978_modified.patch git apply pygi-d37680bb9390426f7f58ea3d352c3e5e2106e978_modified.patch dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b
6. install compiled packages
sudo dpkg -i ../*.deb
Now, when I run "./sugar-jhbuild run sugar-emulator" I can see the icons and the toolbar properly.
Where Debian is installed via the Debian installer or virtual machine, Sugar has been reported to run nicely.
- Sugar 0.88.0 works nicely in Debian squeeze.
Low footprint versions (eg no Gnome Display Manager) with SLiM and Openbox only, are reported in this link to cause a problem.
