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

Install Fedora. Then, in a Terminal, type:

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

Then restart your computer. At the Sign in 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. Logout from Sugar to return to the desktop environment you were previously using.

Sugar is also available from Activities search in GNOME.

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 Fedora installation process. Or, the Fedora installer may be started from the Sugar Terminal activity, with the command sudo liveinst, or using the tutorial.
