= Sugar on Ubuntu =
'''As of December 2009, We started a total refactoring of how Sugar is packaged in Ubuntu.'''
'''Please See the Ubuntu Sugarteam wiki at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SugarTeam for the latest information.'''
The Sugar packages for Ubuntu provide a Sugar environment that is easy to install and can be configured as an X session in gdm or run in a window with sugar-emulator.
== Sugar on Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) ==
Lucid has Sugar 0.88, 0.86, and 0.84 packages synced from [[Community/Distributions/Debian|Debian]].
The current preferred method of running Sugar on the ubuntu is via Ubuntu Sugar Remix which can be downloaded at http://people.sugarlabs.org/dfarning
Packages can also be install via sudo
sudo apt-get install sugar sugar-activities
== Sugar on Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic) ==
The prefered way to run Sugar  on karmic is via sugar-* PPA. The purposes to have these PPAs are that for now there is a lack of official sugar packages in ubuntu(hope it will be resolved soon by porting Debian packages) and give users a chance to test last development releases.
Its possible because these PPAs are based on packages generated by [[Deployment_Team/jhconvert|jhconvert]], its not a problem to support them. These packages are pretty simple and straightforward and were generated with one idea in mind - start sugar, so they don't follow any Debian/Ubuntu policies and aren't intended to be official packages.
Before attaching ppa, load gpg key
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 86ABE8AE363C5DAC
gpg --export --armor 86ABE8AE363C5DAC | sudo apt-key add -
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv F265806A9BFFF0F4

To use Sucrose-0.84 on 8.04(Hardy)
sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/alsroot/trisquel-edu/ubuntu hardy main >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sugar-platform
To use Sucrose-0.86 on 9.04(Jaunty). You need to update metacity from this PPA.
sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/alsroot/trisquel-edu-3/ubuntu jaunty main >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install metacity
sudo apt-get install sugar-platform
To use Sucrose-0.86 on 9.10(Karmic)
sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/sugarteam/0.86/ubuntu karmic main >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sugar-platform
(**NOTE: "https://launchpad.net/~sugarteam/+archive/0.86 repo looks empty
I guess the major plan for ubuntu team is using debian's sugar"

Subject: Re: [IAEP] 'apt-get install sugar-platform' available for
Ubuntu (Karmic) now provides a nicer way to add repositories. Type the
following at a shell prompt:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sugarteam/0.86
Using the command above results in both importing the GPG key for a
PPA and creates a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ named
"sugarteam-0.86-karmic.list" with all the proper magic in it.  The
output of the command looks like this (line-wrapped for readability):
$ add-apt-repository ppa:sugarteam/0.86

== Sugar on Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty) ==
Jaunty, the current Ubuntu release, has Sucrose 0.83 packages synced from [[Community/Distributions/Debian|Debian]].
Sugar does not work out-of-the-box under Jaunty as of 2009-07-01, although there is a workaround. See the [[Talk:Community/Distributions/Ubuntu|discussion here]] for more information.
:That work around doesn't work.--[[User:Dennis Daniels|Dennis Daniels]] 00:38, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
0.84 Works for me from  https://launchpad.net/~alsroot/+archive/ppa package name is sugar-platform --[[User:Satyaakam]] 22:00,12 August 2009 (IST)

=== Installing ===
Installation instructions:
sudo apt-get install sugar sugar-activities
== Sugar on Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) ==
Intrepid, the previous Ubuntu release, has Sucrose 0.82 packages synced from [[Community/Distributions/Debian|Debian]].
=== Installing ===
Installation instructions:
sudo apt-get install sugar sugar-activities
=== Running Sugar ===
Run sugar in a window under a gnome login, using the Applications menu > Other > Sugar Emulator, or running the following in a terminal:
If everything is working fine, you can log into Sugar from the gdm login screen instead of running sugar-emulator.
The following does not currently work, but should in the future:
Some activities could not be included due to missing dependencies - notably Read and Write. These will be published in the [https://launchpad.net/~sugarteam/+archive Sugar Team PPA] soon, which can be accessed via
sudo -s
echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/sugarteam/ubuntu hardy main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sugar.list
apt-get update
apt-get install sugar sugar-emulator sugar-activities
=== Upgrading ===
If you are experiencing problems after upgrading from 8.04 (Hardy), please do the following to uninstall the partially-upgraded packages:
sudo apt-get purge sugar sugar-\*
and repeat the installation command outlined above to install only the new packages.
=== Reporting Bugs ===
If you need log files for debugging, use the following command in a GNOME terminal ''(not Sugar Terminal)'' to run sugar with debug logs turned on:
This generates log files in the .sugar/default/logs directory under your home directory.
To report a bug on Sugar or one of the Sugar activities on Ubuntu, use the following steps:
* Go to https://launchpad.net/sucrose which represents all the Sugar components and activities supported in Ubuntu.
* Click on the appropriate component at the bottom of the page. If in doubt, click "Sugar shell" which is the base Sugar component.
* On the resulting page, scroll down to "Packages" and click on the hardy or intrepid package.
* On the resulting page, click on the "Bugs" tab at the top of the page.
* That takes you to a page listing known bugs on the package, and with a red "Report a bug" button.
Please include any relevant log files in a bug report: activity log files usually are named similarly to "org.laptop.Chat-1.log" (which is the log file for Chat). If you have run the activity multiple times in the current Sugar session, there will be Chat-2, Chat-3, etc so try to include the appropriate one.
If a problem or bug involves seeing (or not seeing) people in Neighborhood View, or activity sharing/collaboration, please also include presenceservice.log in the bug report.
'''Please note''': The Ubuntu Sugar team will do their best to provide fixes for bugs, but it does take time to get an updated package uploaded through Ubuntu's [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates Stable Release Updates] process. Where possible we'll suggest a workaround, or provide a fix in the [https://launchpad.net/~sugarteam/+archive Sugar Team PPA] first.
