Sugar Learning Environment

Installing Sugar in Fedora

Using Software graphical installer tool

Unfortunately, Fedora 20's Software search fails to find Sugar.


Using the command line

In a terminal or console, enter this command line:

sudo yum install @sugar-desktop sugar-runner


Launching Sugar

With sugar-desktop and sugar-runner) installed you have two (or more) ways of running Sugar.

1. To launch the Sugar Desktop Environment (also known as a Sugar session) you must reboot.


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 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 sugar-runner is an improvement on sugar-emulator for Fedora 20. By default, sugar-runner runs full screen.

"Logout" of Sugar (from the Home screen central avatar's hover palette), to return to the Desktop Environment you were previously using.
See emulator screen size adjustment.


Fedora Sugar on a Stick Spin

Sugar is pre-installed in a Live CD Fedora Spin that can be fully installed, if desired.
