==Installing the Sugar Learning Environment==
:[[Fedora 29]] - Release-specific community notes
===Using the command line===
In a terminal or console, enter this command line:
sudo dnf groupinstall sugar-desktop
sudo dnf install sugar-runner
After these components are installed, the Sugar buddy icon, [[File:XO_buddy.png|28px|link=]], should appear in the Show Applications screen.
sugar-runner launches Sugar by default in full screen mode.  To launch in a smaller window, edit the launcher to insert a default screen resolution per this command:
sudo sed -i "s/\(Exec=sugar-runner\).*/\1 --resolution 1024x768/" /usr/share/applications/sugar-runner.desktop
::(Fedora 22 requires such a resolution setting to avoid a blank screen bug. Fedora 23 has fixed this bug.)
{{Show|collapsed=mw-collapsed|'''Graphical interface method'''|
: GNOME Software Center, is the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/AppInstaller new] default software installer for Fedora. Searching for Sugar with [https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Software Software] ({{Code|gnome-software}}) fails to find it. [https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/34820/where-is-the-add-remove-software-application-gone-in-fedora-20/ This link to ask.fedoraproject.org] explains that Software only targets "Applications".
: [https://fedorahosted.org/yumex/ Yum Extender] finds Sugar by searching for "Groups".
: Yum Extender is the default graphical software installer tool in certain Fedora Desktop Environments, for instance XFCE, and is found in ''Applications Menu -> Administration -> Yum Extender''.
: If not installed, use the default software installer tool to search for and install ''yumex''. See also [http://www.yumex.dk/p/documnetation.htm YumEx documentation].
: Open Yum Extender. ''Package Filters'' are found on the line below the main search bar. Use the Package Filter buttons to select "Groups".
: The navigation pane on the left, now lists all Package Groups in alphabetical order.
: Near the foot of the list, press the "+" to open "Sugar Desktop Environment".
: This will reveal two "Groups". Place a check in the box for "Sugar Desktop Environment". Review the selection in the right pane.
: At the foot of the Yum Extender window, "Install All" will mark all packages for installation.
: Now press "Apply" to have all necessary packages and dependencies installed, together with a useful selection of Activities.
: In order to be able to use ''Sugar-runner'', enter sugar-runner in the search field, press "Enter", mark it for installation and press "Apply".
: Later (if desired) you can return to Yum Extender and install further packages within "Additional Sugar Activities".
==Launching Sugar==
With {{Code|sugar-desktop}} and {{Code|sugar-runner}} installed you have two simple ways of running Sugar.
: 1. The ''Sugar Runner'' will be available (no restart required) from ''Show Applications ->  Sugar''.
::* Sugar will run in a [[wikipedia:Xephyr|Xephyr]] window, entitled 'Sugar Runner', 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/note|Note:|By default, ''sugar-runner'' runs full screen.
* "Logout" of Sugar (from the Home screen's central avatar hover palette), to return to the desktop environment you were previously using.
* See [[The Undiscoverable#sugar-emulator, sugar-runner, and sweets-sugar-emulator|emulator screen size adjustment]] for alternative emulator sizing.}}
: 2. You may also boot directly to the Sugar Desktop Environment (also known as a Sugar session).
::* On reboot, at the login screen, a "Sugar" entry will now be present in the login screen, under a "settings icon" or under "Session Type".
::*: 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 GNOME3. (Click the image to see an enlarged version.)
::* Select "Sugar" within the login prompt, enter your password, and '''Enter''', and the computer will boot into the Sugar Desktop Environment.
==Fedora Sugar on a Stick Spin==
Fedora spins are alternative versions of Fedora, tailored for various types of users. The Fedora Sugar on a Stick Spin, http://spins.fedoraproject.org/soas/, is the variant of Fedora, with [[Sugar on a Stick]] components included.
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 [http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/20/html/Installation_Guide/ here]. The installer is started from the Sugar Terminal Activity, with the command {{Code|liveinst}}, run as root. There is a tutorial [[Tutorials/Installation/Install with liveinst|here]].
* See '''[[File:Soas-avocado.svg|200px|bottom|link=Sugar on a Stick]]'''.
