Hi,

Packages gnome-keyring and xorg-server-xephyr are required as well

Thanks!

@cgueret: No thank you for updating, keep up the good work, cheers!!

@ryansito: Thanks for the notifications. I have checked and there is no version newer that 0.106.0 on either https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar/releases or http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar/ so the package is up to date. The dependency for gwebsockets is confirmed when I do a "pip freeze" but I don't know if it's really much needed or not. There used to be a package in AUR but that one is apparently gone now. I'll add one and update the dependency of sugar

python2-gwebsockets-git not found https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=python2-gwebsockets-git . Does sugar strongly depends on it?

cgueret commented on 2014-03-13 06:01

Normally, installing the xorg and xorg-apps along with a display manager (for instance, gdm) should be enough...

It seems that there is not a lot of info on getting sugar to run in Arch. I discovered through trial and error that after all dependencies of this package are satisfied 'makepkg' will still fail unless it is run from within X. Having finally installed sugar I am still at a loss as to how to start it. I then had the idea of installing LightDM and the LightDM GTK3 Greeter but after a brief flicker of the screen upon entering my username and password I am returned to the login in screen. Will someone be so kind as to point me to some useful resources for how to install sugar in a "clean" (ie. having followed the Arch "Beginner's Guide") install of Arch? I appoligize in advance for posting this here...

Ok ok... updating them right now...

The latest stable release is 0.100.2. Please update this package even if the XO images are not updated yet.

cgueret commented on 2013-11-25 09:45

Yep but I've decided to stick to the latest release which currently ships 0.98.7 (see http://download.laptop.org/xo-1/os/official/13.2.0-13/32013o0.activities.txt and http://download.laptop.org/xo-1/os/official/13.2.0-13/32013o0.packages.txt)

This is useful for whose (like me) who want to have the same sugar on their PCs as the one available on the XOs.

It would be great to update this to 0.100 :)

cgueret commented on 2012-02-07 09:53

You should install the package "python2-dateutil" to fix this issue.
I'll add it as a dependency in the upcoming package update

cgueret commented on 2011-12-24 16:15

I'm not sure but I've added the dependency anyway

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-23 04:10

'metacity' should definitely be listed as a dependency. Sugar fails to function properly without it.

One thing I that still doesn't work is network configurations via Control_Panel. Clicking on Network just doesn't show anything. I already installed telepathy-gabble and telepathy-salut which seems to be necessary to do networking via mesh or jabber. But to no avail. Any idea?

One thing I don't get to work is network access. Network configurations via Control_Panel don't open. I already installed telepathy-gabble and telepathy-salut which seems to be necessary to do networking via mesh or jabber. But to no avail. Any idea?

Cool, tanks!

cgueret commented on 2011-07-14 08:38

@boon: Added a patch to fix this issue.

cgueret commented on 2011-07-13 09:07

I'm on it... Works on my machine so it's a bit harder to figure out what's going on.
