Fedora (formerly Fedora Core) is an operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat. -- wikipedia.org

In relation to Sugar, Fedora is a downstream distribution project that can be used to run Sugar.

Using Sugar as a Desktop Environment

In a Terminal, type:

sudo dnf groupinstall sugar-desktop
sudo dnf install python2-decorator webkitgtk3

Then restart your computer. At the password prompt select the Sugar desktop.

Using Sugar with another Desktop Environment

Select the GNOME on Xorg or GNOME Classic desktop, then in a Terminal, type:

sudo dnf groupinstall sugar-desktop
sudo dnf install sugar-runner python2-decorator webkitgtk3
sugar-runner

Sugar will start.

sugar-runner is also available from Activities search.

Note:
By default, sugar-runner runs full screen. To launch in a smaller window, edit the launcher to insert a default screen resolution using the command line below:
sudo sed -i "s/\(Exec=sugar-runner\).*/\1 --resolution 1024x768/" /usr/share/applications/sugar-runner.desktop
  • "Logout" from Sugar to return to the desktop environment you were previously using.

Sugar on a Stick

Sugar on a Stick is a Fedora spin, made from Fedora and Sugar together.

While the Spin is optimized for installation on a USB thumbdrive ("stick"), it can be installed to a hard drive by following the Fedora installation process documented here. The installer is started from the Sugar Terminal Activity, with the command liveinst, run as root. There is a tutorial here.
