First of all, you should clone the git repository by executing:
 
 
 
git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/sugar-build/sugar-build.git
 
 
 
After that, you should download all the needed libraries to build Sugar. There is a really easy way to do this by running:
 
 
 
make
 
 
 
When the ''make'' process finishes Sugar will be able to be run. To do this, you just have to execute:
 
 
 
make run
 
 
 
This will open a new X server. Then you will be able to switch between you desktop and Sugar with '''Ctrl + Alt + F1''' and '''Ctrl + Alt + F2'''

Setup a development environment describes a set of scripts to make it easy to build all the sugar modules and some of the required dependencies. Please see the documentation.

If you find any issue please report them instead of documenting workarounds on this page. The tips get out of date really quickly and unreported bugs are never fixed. The goal here is to always work out of the box for everyone.
