When you reboot Fedora, at the point where you login, login screen, a "Sugar" entry will now be present, maybe hidden, somewhere in the login prompt, under a "settings icon" or under "Session Type".
''Note, the "Sugar" entry in the login screen may not be very obvious at first, and the look will depend on the login manager on your system. This image shows the "Sugar" entry being selected in Fedora 20. Click the image to enlarge.''
Select "Sugar" within the login prompt, enter your password, and '''Enter''', and the computer will boot into Sugar Desktop Environment.
2. The Sugar emulator (sugar-runner) will be available (no restart required) from the Applications Menu, Select Education, Select Sugar.
Sugar will run in a [[wikipedia:Xephyr|Xephyr]] window, Sugar in a window, within your current desktop environment. You will have full access to Sugar features, and may even run multiple instances. Networking bugs may currently prevent collaboration with others in the jabber.sugarlabs.org server Neighborhood. Press key '''F1''' to see the Sugar Neighborhood view.
'''Note'''  [[Fedora_20#Install_Media|'''sugar-runner''']] is an improvement on sugar-emulator for [[Fedora 20]]. By default, sugar-runner runs full screen.
