NOTE: You might have to edit your sources and remove the "Sugar version" information so that you can attempt to install 'sweets-distribution'. The last command failed when I tried though. I tried 'sudo apt-get install sweets' Which completed successfully but still 'sweets-distribution status' does not work properly. Xinerama 10:13, 14 April 2013 (EDT)

Or check the downloads directory for other combinations.
