Are you new to Sugar?

The easiest way to get started is to use Sugar on a Stick. Basic instructions are found below. A more detailed Sugar-on-a-Stick Creation Guide is also available. (If you already use GNU/Linux, you may want to install the Sugar packages available from your distro.)


MS Windows

(2) Download: Download the Sugar-on-a-Stick iso.
USB flash drive.jpg (3) Burn: Insert a USB flash drive (or SD Card) with 1 GB or more of free space into your computer and launch Fedora Live USB Creator to create a Sugar-on-a-Stick bootable image.
Note: Be sure to set the persistent storage slider to a non-zero value.
(4) Boot: Insert the USB stick into a USB port on your computer. Set the option to "boot from USB" in your computer's BIOS, and then start up the computer.

Detailed installation instructions for Windows and booting instructions are available. There is also a guide to using Sugar on a Stick.


GNU/Linux

GNU/Linux users may want to install the Sugar packages on their favorite distro.

Gnulinux.png (1) Prepare: Use this script http://bit.ly/livecd-iso-to-disk to create a bootable image. (Run chmod +x livecd-iso-to-disk.sh after you download the script to make it executable.)

(2) Download: Download the Sugar-on-a-Stick iso.

      ./livecd-iso-to-disk.sh --reset-mbr --overlay-size-mb 200 --home-size-mb 200 --delete-home --unencrypted-home /path/to/source.iso /dev/sd?1

where '?' in the final parameter represents the target bootable device node, such as sdb1 or sdc1, etc.
(4) Boot: Insert the USB stick into a USB port on your computer. Set the option to "boot from USB" in your computer's BIOS, and then start up the computer.

Detailed installation instructions for GNU/Linux and booting instructions are available. There is also a guide to using Sugar on a Stick.


Apple OSX

DRAFT: These instructions are incomplete. Please help with testing and documentation. You may want to refer to the Virtual Machines instructions below.

Apple.gif (1) Prepare: These instructions are only for 64-bit machines. (To identify processor, choose Apple menu > About This Mac. A small window will appear titled About This Mac. The processor type is displayed in this window. Sugar on a Stick is for the Intel processor only.)
Download Mirabell.png
(2) Download: Download the Sugar-on-a-Stick iso. Be sure to download a 64-bit image.
USB flash drive.jpg (3) Burn: Does someone have a simple way to burn a Live USB on a Mac?
(4) Boot: Insert the USB stick into a USB port on your computer. Is this correct?: During the startup sound, press and hold the c key. If the Apple logo appears, Sugar is not booting. Restart and try again.
  • the c key must be pressed during the startup sound and you must continue to hold it down.
  • you may release the c key once the Sugar logo appears.

Alternative installation instructions for OSX Also, these older installation instructions and booting instructions are available. There is also a guide to using Sugar on a Stick.
