From Lists: support-gang@laptop.org 07/15/2013
 
 
I just wanted to give everyone a heads about something coming down the pipe:)
 
On of the primary frustrations that I have been hearing from the
 
community is their inability to easily get hardware for their
 
deployments.
 
In response, we have released of an iso running Sugar on Ubuntu at
 
http://ubuntu.activitycentral.com/makeiso/iso/ubuntu_12.04-20130712_i686.iso
 
* Username is "ubuntu", with empty password.
 
As alway, AC's code is 100% free and open source.
 
 
===What's new===
 
* Tuned up python-dbus clears the last bug that made most activities
 
fail to start.
 
* Logs in into Sugar automatically.
 
* Most activities work (some will need some work, but it should not be
 
caused by problems in Sugar dependencies anymore, but things specific
 
to the activity). To be precise they start,  didn't test them in deeply
 
  Didn't test collaboration yet.
 
* General polish to make it look closer to a final product.
 
===What fails===
 
* Some quirks with the tamtam activities as usual, probably already
 
fixed in newer bundles.
 
* Write does not work as the gtk3 version of pyabiword or the gtk2
 
version of libabiword are not available in Ubuntu, so both gtk2 and
 
gtk3 versions of the activity are missing half of the dependencies.
 
* Etoys and Scratch fail, probably because squeak-vm is not the proper
 
version, so I'll be packaging that later as well.
 
* The keyboard and network sections of the CP fail, the code makes
 
some assumptions about being run in a xo or under fedora, resulting in
 
unhandled exceptions.
 
* Sometimes activities may fail to start if you open them right after
 
logging in, because something with dbus is not yet fully running.
