Raspbian is a derivative of Debian for the Raspberry Pi.

In relation to Sugar, Raspbian is a downstream distribution project that can be used to run Sugar.

See Debian for how to use Sugar on Raspbian.

Turtle Art/Blocks

You can download Activities/Turtle Art and use it on the normal desktop. You can either download it through the package manager (and get version 98):

   sudo apt-get install sugar-turtleart-activity

Turtle art will be added to the Education section of the apps menu.

Or you could get the latest version using git:

   git clone https://github.com/sugarlabs/activity-turtleart-gtk2.git turtleart
   cd turtleart

And use the following to start Turtle Art:

   python turtleblocks.py

NOTE: you may encounter an error related to the summary field in the activity.info. If so, open the activity/activity.info file and move the summary field from the bottom of the file, to being the line below the title field


Sugarizer is a HTML5 version of Sugar. It has a basic journal and full web activity support.

You can configure Sugarizer to auto-start by setting your ~/.xinitrc to:

   epiphany server.sugarizer.org

(Note: there are a few issues with the browser icons... but sugarizer works well)

Alternatively, you can download the Sugarizer client zip and have it locally on your pi.
