Sugar Hotkeys

(These may or may not work, for example many of these DON'T work if you are running Sugar in emulation mode in Fedora 11.)

in emulation mode

  • Alt+Shift+F makes the frame appear and disappear
   * Ctrl-Q quits an activity
   * Alt+Shift+Q quits Sugar
   * Alt+Shift+O opens the search
   * Alt+Shift+R rotates the screen

Terminal hotkeys

  • Ctrl + Shift + c = copy to clipboard
  • Ctrl + Shift + v = paste from clipboard

Keys that should work

Some combination of hotkeys should always work to close an application. Somtimes

  • Ctrl + q works

but not always.

Activities

Turtle Art Hotkeys

  • Alt + p = palette;
  • Alt + b = blocks;
  • Alt + r = run;
  • Alt + w = walk;
  • Alt + s = stop;
  • Alt + e = erase the screen.

The undiscoverables

Keys that don't work but should

  • Esc doesn't appear to do anything at the activity level ... if Sugar is to help kids learn about computers then they should know that escape, outside of Sugar, does a lot of stop-gap good. Is there no 'Esc' on OLPC machines?
