Supported versions

Currently only Karmic (9.10) is supported. All more recent versions of Ubuntu lack at least one important package.


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

Significant bugs

Karmic (9.10) has a broken D-Bus security configuration that prevents sugar-emulator from working (because Xephyr cannot work). On all versions sugar-emulator doesn't work properly if the X server uses evdev as keyboard driver (because of a Xephyr bug).

Potential pitfalls

  • gtk-recordmydesktop may prevent sugar-emulator from working properly
