Trisquel GNU/Linux is a fully free operating system endorsed by the FSF. It has an educational edition, based on Ubuntu LTS, and also a stand alone Live/Installable image for CD and USB drives, based on the latest Ubuntu version. More info:

Live image

You can download the (430MB) iso image from here:

To create a live USB disk with user data persistence, you can burn the image in a CD and use it to start a live session. Then plug the USB unit, open the terminal, and run "usb-creator". A launcher application is coming.

The usb-creator helper is also included in the Trisquel (and Ubuntu) desktop applications. If you use a different GNU/Linux distribution or Windows, you can use FUSBi instead.

Installing Sugar on Trisquel 2.2 LTS

To install the Sugar desktop you will need to add the repository to your apt configuration running this

echo "deb sugar-robur main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update

Now you can install the sugar-platform package using the synaptic package manager or by running

sudo aptitude install sugar-platform

You can now log out of your session and login into Sugar. If your computer is a LTSP server, it would be serving Sugar already.

Installing Sugar on Trisquel 3.0

You can install Sugar with the above method, but using this repository line instead:

echo "deb sugar-dwyn main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
