The Sugar packages for Debian provide a Sugar environment that is easy to install and can be configured as an X11 session in GDM or run in a window with sugar-emulator.
Please see the [https://wiki.debian.org/Sugar Sugar] page on the Debian wiki.
It is a much simpler platform to set up for activity developers than jhbuild, although is not bleeding-edge.
Sugar on Debian is packaged and maintained by the [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/debian-olpc/ Alioth OLPC team], who welcomes new contributors to test, document, triage, and make packages.
== Sugar on Debian 5.0 (Lenny) ==
=== Official Sucrose 0.82 ===
'''Old, only partial, but officially included in Lenny'''
These are the core parts of Sugar that was packaged in early 2009 and got included officially with the stable Debian 5.0 release, codename "Lenny".
Most of 0.82 Sucrose and Sucrose is included, with the notable exceptions of Read, Write and Etoys.
Installation instructions:
sudo aptitude --with-recommends install sugar
Additional Sugar activities can be installed locally from .xo packages. Some activities requiring additional library code (like Read and Write), needs specially crafted .xo packages, however - the standard released ones won't work.
We do recommend using the version 0.84 packages instead, as mentioned below:
=== Sucrose 0.86 and 0.84 ===
'''Up-to-date version, unofficial repository'''
Improvements to official Debian packaging of Sugar, made after the release of Lenny, have been carefully backported by same developers and made available as unofficial addon to Lenny.
Installation instructions:
sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://debian.jones.dk/ lenny sugar > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sugar.list'
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install sucrose-0.86
For Sucrose 0.84, replace last line with the following:
sudo aptitude install sucrose-0.84
(above works for i386 and amd64 platforms - please post to debian-olpc-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org if other architectures are wanted)
== Sugar on Debian unstable (Sid) ==
Sid, the never-released development branch of Debian, currently contains Sucrose 0.88, 0.86 and 0.84 packages.
Installation instructions:
sudo aptitude install sucrose-0.88
For Sucrose 0.84 and 0.86 use one of these commands instead:
sudo aptitude install sucrose-0.86
sudo aptitude install sucrose-0.84
== Usage ==
Run sugar in a window under another desktop (GNOME, KDE, XFCE etc.):
Logfiles and other data are stored below ~/.sugar
You can start Sugar using an alternative profile (e.g. to run multiple virtual Sugar environments concurrently) with the following command instead:
SUGAR_PROFILE=another_profile sugar-emulator
If you need verbose log files for debugging, use the following command instead:
If everything is working fine, you can log into Sugar from the GDM login screen instead of running sugar-emulator.
