OLPC:Sugar Control Panel

Some thought should go into maintaining this reference, Sugar Control Panel and not diverging resources. --FGrose 15:15, 8 December 2011 (EST)

I wonder if this is an entry level presentation? Perhaps there is a bit too much "expansion of ideas" if that were the case. Secondly, the navigation bar may work better once we have more pages "at a certain level" or "belonging to a group". I originally pinched the nav-bar from Human Interface Guidelines. In that case the "map" aids navigation. As a sort of map of work in progress I have contributed Tutorials, Work in progress. Possibly some of the material here would fit a "Tips and Tricks" page? --Inkyfingers 07:35, 12 December 2011 (EST) We already have one with most of them. --Satellit 09:08, 12 December 2011 (EST)

How To clear Sugar of these keys and the name and color entries

  • To clear Sugar of these keys and the name and color entries, enter the command rm ~ rf /.sugar in the Terminal activity. Then shutdown sugar su shutdown -h now . This will clear all Learner information and let you start with a fresh install. Skipping this will result in collisions in the Neighborhood view of the Jabber network. Verify the presence of the .sugar directory by entering ls -a in Terminal.
  • To reset only the ssh keys, in order to keep the Journal and installed .xo Activities, use rm ~/.sugar/default/owner.key* in the Sugar Terminal, and then shutdown sugar su shutdown -h now. This leaves the Journal entries and removes only the previous Learner's identity key files.
