Testing/Reports/Sweets on Debian Wheezy

From Sugar Labs
Jump to: navigation, search

These tests were carried out on an HP-dx5150 desktop PC, running Debian testing Wheezy amd64 version, with x-display manager, Slim, and Openbox desktop environment. During these tests aptitude shows no missing dependencies.

Limitation of article

In Debian testing, gnome is not marked as a dependency of gnome-packagekit. This article does not challenge nor assume that "gnome-packagekit relies on gnome for full functionality."

Platform Team/Guide/Sugar via Sweets provides the instructions followed.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install gnome-packagekit
The following extra packages will be installed: app-install-data gnome-desktop3-data gnome-packagekit-data gnome-settings-daemon libelf1 libglib2.0-bin libgnome-desktop-3-2 libgnomekbd-common libgnomekbd7 libpackagekit-glib2-14 libwacom-common libwacom2 libxklavier16 packagekit packagekit-backend-aptcc   python-packagekit

It is not necessary to do this, but if we ran the "status of dependencies" command right now, the first lines, and last lines of response look like this:

sweets status --deps dextrose/sugar:emulator

This reports (confirming known) that dextrose/sugar still requires to be downloaded - "dr", and libwnck-python and xephyr still require to be installed - "ir".

Ready to launch first sweet.

This command has opened Sugar in an emulator for me, but it is not useable on my machine. No Actiities are visible in F3 Home view, and no avatars are visible in F1 neighborhood view. There is no ~/Activities folder or contents. Clicking on the central avatar (represents the user) => My Settings => Software update, reports updates are available, but offers no means to install them.

To find out if all dependencies are now fulfilled, run the "status, dependencies" command.

Look at first character of each line, all "-" compare with legend: "(-) = ok".

So all dependencies are reported to have been fulfilled by Sweets.

Launch a different sweet.

This produced a Sugar window. Clicking on central avatar => My Settings => Software update, reports updates are available.

Make a selection of these six Activities:

Chat, IRC, Labyrinth, Log, Pippy, Terminal, and click Install selected. Turn to the F3 Home view. Favorites view is empty, look in List view, Activities are there but nothing starts.

Restart the machine. Launch a different sweet.

One or two items start.

Open the Activity Log. Look for a line for each Activity you have used in the session, the last line of the log file is what I quote here.

spirolaterals says "no module named pygame", memorise and speak say no module named gst, MeasureActivity no module named pygst, Browse no module named hulahop.

We already established sweets reported that dependencies are all met.

We can use -dd argument to show all dependencies:

sweets status -dd dextrose/sugar:emulator = 0.94

This produces an even longer list indicating that all dependencies are met.

From past experience, in Debian these might help:

sudo apt-get install python-vte python-gst0.10 python-pygame

and also "Suggested packages"

sudo apt-get install oss-compat python-gst0.10-dev python-gst0.10-dbg timidity

Restart

Turtle Art now runs.

spirolaterals now runs

memorise now runs

and speak now says AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'voices'

Measure Activity now says ElementNotFoundError: alsasrc

Maze has an empty log

sudo apt-get install alsa-utils - already the newest version.
sweets sdk/sugar:emulator

Sofware updates reports software is not up to date. Select all, and install all.

Maze now runs.

Use host browser to download Chat.xo, unzip to ~/Activities test ok

Use host browser to download Surf.115.xo, unzip to ~/Activities, test. Fail, log reports - no module named webkit.

sudo apt-get install python-webkit

Surf fails again - different issue - ImportError: cannot import name AddressEntry

sweets sdk/sugar:emulator = 0.88

Surf now works, but we have no avatars in F1 view.

During testing Turtle Art now reports: "Failed to start"

Review

Past experience with Debian indicates it is often necessary to cycle through all the sweets variants with one or two restarts to get expected activities to work.

The above makes me believe that at a minimum, with Debian, these packages must be manually installed: python-webkit python-gst0.10 python-pygame

It could be further investigated whether the "suggested" packages python-gst0.10-dbg and python-gst0.10-dev are beneficial.

Sweets tested:

dextrose/sugar [default is 0.88] and dextrose/sugar = 0.94,

sdk/sugar [default is 0.94] and sdk/sugar = 0.88.

Environment Report

In both 0.94 versions:

All F1 to F6 keys worked correctly, all views and avatars seen and behave correctly, Software updates works correctly.

In both 0.88 versions:

Some function key, some Avatar not showing in F1, and some Software update failure issues.

Activity Surf works in both 0.88 versions, and in neither 0.94 version.

Activities Report

All the following worked in one or both 0.94 versions. (the 0.88 versions were not comprehensively tested)

Abacus v.30.5 - Arithmetic v.2 - Calculate v.40 - Chat v.77 - Dimensions v.39 - Edit v.8 - FlipSticks v.13 - FotoToon v.13 - ImageViewer v.21 - Implode v.12 - IRC v.10 - Jukebox v.26 - Labyrinth v.14 - Log v.29 - Maze v.21 - Memorize v.41 - Moon v.14 - Paint v.43 - Pippy v.49 - Ruler v.19 - Spirolaterals v.23 - StopWatch v.16 - Sugar Commander v.8 - Terminal v.40 - TurtleMachine v.22 - TypingTurtle v.29 - Words v.17.

The following all reported "Fail to start"

Browse v.129 - Colors v.15 - Etoys v.113 - Measure v.42 - Physics v.10 - Read v.92 - Record v.87 - Speak v.41 - TamTamMini v.63 - Turtle Art v.149 - TuxPaint v.6 - Write v.79.

Update, using the -S option

I have never previously achieved a sweets window with the -S option in Debian.

Having finished writing this report I have tried:

sweets -S dextrose/sugar:emulator = 0.94

Now working activities include:

Browse v.129 - Physics v.10 - Turtle Art v.149 -

Checking the dependencies, we see:

It would be good to know why, in Debian, dependencies are unpredictable to resolve.
