I was able to make the sugar packages work by adding a gconf setting:

== Sources list does not contain OLPC sources ==
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/favorites_layout -t string ring-layout
 
I think this will be fixed by adding the right gconf schema to the package, and hopefully will be fixed in version 0.84.
 
  
There are still lots of non-fatal error messages in the terminal, but it looks like these can be ignored. I used <code>sugar-emulator --dpi=200</code>. Logging in to a Sugar session from <code>gdm</code> worked too.

Previously, it was thought that [https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/325706 a problem with Xephyr and dbus] was at fault, but the above workaround shows that it's a Sugar packaging problem.

*NOTE 1: Also tried synaptic install of sugar, neither method runs correctly. sugar-emulator will not start, terminal: sugar-emulator shows errors and will not start.??
 
 
 
(VMworkstation 6.5.2 install (runnng Ubuntu 8,04 Hardy) and Ubuntu 9.04 VM install of Ubuntu 9.04 made 2Gb SD startup disk with persistence tested in EeePC900 both installations were updated before trying install of sugar.
 
 
 
Here are error messages from terminal:

sugar command Does not work from sudo either..
 
 
 
:The error you're getting above is because you ran it as root. Now it has some log files lying around that it's trying to use, but you don't have permission to modify them. You can do something like this to resolve that problem:
 
    sudo chown -R robert ~/.sugar
 
:That will get you back to the point where you see the underlying problem, which is reported in <code>~/.sugar/default/logs/shell.log</code> that has to do with dbus.

*Note 2: Ubuntu 9.04 USB Startup disk program makes SD which can be updated. If you add user and switch to new user, the Install icon goes away from the desktop and is now located in System Administration unlike Fedora 11 Preview where it is not removed from a user's desktop, And a system update fails.
 
 
 
*Note 3: sugar-emulator in terminal results in a black screen with mouse coursor. Have to Alt-Tab get out..

Resize in VirtualBox?

When using Ubuntu Sugar image olpc-ubuntu-sugar-14.04.2-desktop-amd64-1432093697.iso in VirtualBox, there are "some issues of window not sizing for full screen viewing and scrolling. Also some of the stop buttons on the upper right corner does not show well." -- Anonymous Coward.

Install the virtualbox-guest-utils package in the virtual machine. See how to Setup a Virtual Machine for Ubuntu Sugar. Is fixed for next build. --Quozl (talk) 21:47, 22 May 2015 (EDT)
The fix is in the new build, see Installing an unstable system. --Quozl (talk) 04:14, 6 June 2015 (EDT)

Sources list does not contain OLPC sources

When using a system installed from olpc-ubuntu-sugar-14.04.2-desktop-amd64-1432093697.iso the software sources list is incorrect. This is fixed for the next build. For the moment, a workaround is to update the sources list. See post by Iain. --Quozl (talk) 03:43, 2 June 2015 (EDT)
