Supported versions

Currently only unstable (sid) is supported. Squeeze (current testing) will be supported once python-gobject >= 2.16 enters testing.


In order to install sugar-jhbuild, you need git-core and svn.

Installing dependencies

After installing and updating sugar-jhbuild according to the common instructions, you can use this invocation to install all dependencies automatically:

./sugar-jhbuild depscheck -s | sudo xargs aptitude -y install


icon-slicer currently is in the process of being accepted into Debian (NEW queue). For the time being, please either install manually or use the packages from Jonas Smedegaard (amd64 only). For the latter, add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb sid sugar

Fixing RPATH

To work around a bug in the Gnome Python bindings, you need to issue the following commands after installing all dependencies:

sudo aptitude install chrpath
find /usr/lib/python-support/python-gnome2/python2.5/gtk-2.0 -name "*.so" | sudo xargs chrpath -d
