{{Note/note|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
 
 
 
== Using Sugar from a USB drive - Sugar on a Stick ==
 
 
 
Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) is a Fedora spin, made from Fedora and Sugar together.
 
 
 
SoaS starts from a USB drive ("stick"), and can be installed with the [http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/20/html/Installation_Guide/ Fedora installation process].  Or, the Fedora installer may be started from the Sugar Terminal activity, with the command {{Code|sudo liveinst}}, or using the [[Tutorials/Installation/Install with liveinst|tutorial]].
