Requirement GNOME?

Comparison of these two reports

Testing/Reports/Sweets on Debian Wheezy and Testing/Reports/Sweets on GNOME Debian Wheezy

would suggest improvements can be made to wording in Debian section of Platform Team/Guide/Sugar via Sweets#Supported distributions --Inkyfingers 06:57, 16 July 2012 (EDT)

Installing sweets-sugar from Fedora 16 GNOME 3 Terminal

12/03/2011 satellit
  • Log of what I found
With much help from alsroot

Installation

  • Zero Install (thus, Sweets') workflow requires having Internet connection
Once the system is built; it is cached locally so it will start without rebuilding
Default is sugar 0.88.1
35px-Activity-write.png
from alsroot:
If you run several different Sugar versions via sweets, you will use the same profile; so, it might be a problem, e.g., the Journal version in Sugar 0.84 is different from Sugar 0.94; but for Sugar 0.88-0.94, it should be mostly ok.

sugar 0.88

Default is sugar 0.88.1
  • GNOME Terminal
sudo yum install gnome-packagekit
wget http://download.sugarlabs.org/sweets/sweets/installer.sh 
sh installer.sh
  • Restart (to reset dbus)
  • Install GPG Key (as PK does not install it.)
Installing in XFCE Beta TC1 x86-64 install is this next section still needed? --Satellit 18:05, 12 March 2012 (EDT)
I did it and no GPG Key was requested
yum install pygobject2-devel
packages will be installed... 1 + 3 dependencies  asks for gpg key and I said Y

Installing Sugar via sweets - in Mint-12

17/12/2011 by inkyfingers

Host environment: Mint-12 installed three days prior to start from:linuxmint-12-gnome-cd-nocodecs-32bit.

Testing Mint-12 over three days, it is fairly sound, but some freezing when using Firefox 8. I wait 10 seconds for unfreeze, no crashes.

My machine: http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_98841a4d-b674-4a44-804b-d7cee2872a09

Now there is a three day gap - I learn that the sweet "base/x11-libs" had a bug found in Mint.

Now use -R option to refresh.

However this produces Sugar in a window.

Testing Sugar in a window

The product of this command under Mint-12 in GUI xterm: sweets -R sdk/sugar:emulator

Title bar reads: Sugar in a window

Build: Linux Mint 12 Lisa
Sugar: 0.94.1
Firmware: 6.00 PG

Very first screen: icon colour change.

Home view: Favourites view and list view appear, are empty

End of test.
NOTE the above was carried out without the benefit of -S switch.

Testing Xephyr

Immediately follows the above.

The product of this command under Mint-12 in GUI xterm: sweets dextrose/sugar:emulator

Title bar reads: Xephyr on :30.0

Build: Linux Mint 12 Lisa
Sugar: 0.88.1

PS Note this test is without benefit of -S switch.

F1 to F6 work - pre-existing journal is intact.

Terminal starts - simple commands work.

About my computer: Sugar 0.88.1

Keyboard settings survived.

Pre-existing downloaded Activites are in Home View.

Click irc, flashing icon, starts. Test tx in and out ok.
