Supported versions

9.04

Jaunty (9.04) has a broken D-Bus security configuration that prevents sugar-emulator from working (because Xephyr cannot work). On both versions sugar-emulator doesn't work properly if the X server uses evdev as keyboard driver (because of a Xephyr bug).

To get sugar to work type at the terminal

 DISPLAY=:0 ./sugar-jhbuild run
This came from the very helpful sdziallas on the IRC.

8.10

Currently intrepid (8.10) is supported.

Prerequites

In order to install sugar-jhbuild, you need git-core and svn.

Installing dependencies

After installing and updating sugar-jhbuild according to the common instructions, you can use this invocation to install all dependencies automatically:

./sugar-jhbuild depscheck -s | sudo xargs aptitude -y install

Fixing RPATH

To work around a bug in the Gnome Python bindings, you need to issue the following commands after installing all dependencies:

sudo aptitude install chrpath
find /usr/lib/python-support/python-gnome2/python2.5/gtk-2.0 \
    /usr/lib/python-support/python-gconf/python2.5/gtk-2.0 \
    -name "*.so" | sudo xargs chrpath -d

PenguinTV

You may have some issues with penguintv on Ubuntu, just interrupt the pull with a CTRL+C, open a shell, repeat the command manually, and accept the certificate permanently.
