sugar in stretch Xfce

Postby kalle123 » 2017-07-13 14:31

Have a fresh installed stretch Xfce and there is a start folder "education" with "browser - surf the world".

Command "sugar-activity webactivity.WebActivity -s" and

folder "/usr/share/sugar/activities/Browse.activity"

Anyone here got this working or is using that??

hmm you mean this ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_(de ... nvironment) ..

I had it installed last week and it seemed to work just fine for me, did you log into sugar by picking it at login ?

Yes, that enviroment.

I did not install anything, it just comes with stretch Xfce.

Shows up in whisker like that ... At the moment, I think, it is just some crap. No documentation, nothing.

oh, i see ... hmm no clue then.. MY IDEAS ARE: perhaps something not packaged right ? || perhaps you installed sugar during install by marking one of the Debian education packages for install?

have you looked to see if it is installed ... by looking for it with dpkg-query -l

something like
#dpkg-query -l sugar-browse-activity

NO! Comes with it by default. Strange..

I did a search here in the packages, which come with the different desktops.

https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/cu ... so-hybrid/

sugar-browse-activity 200+20170502-1 ONLY ships with Xfce, NOT with any other .....

Strange.

Tested with debian-live-9.0.1-amd64-xfce.iso

Sugar is there and even a "goldendict 1.5.0~git20160508.g92b5485-1.1+b1" package. But that comes with all Debian flavors and that works.

Try to fill a bug report on "sugar" and might get an answer that way .....

Placed a bug report #868296

and got a fast answer ...

something wrong with dependencies is my guess.

sugar-browse-activity is best used within the Sugar desktop, which
is the sucrose package on Debian.

sugar-activity provided by python-sugar3 package does not work
very well outside the Sugar user interface shell; just tried it then
and huge traceback because python-carquinyol wasn't installed, but
that's a recommends for python-jarabe so my mistake.

python-carquinyol installed and the sugar-browse-activity starts up,
but without any window manager decorations (in wmaker), because it is
written to be used within the Sugar desktop, which is a fullscreen app
design without windows.

sugar-browse-activity does suggest python-jarabe for the user
interface shell; perhaps it should require or recommend instead.

upstream has some more details if you're interested, see

http://www.sugarlabs.org/
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Debian

not surprised forums didn't know, see also

ya i know about sugar.. i've used it -- once or twice just to see what it was about . I would recommend it for peoples with children.. it's why i keep asking about installing it, because i knew that was part of, the desktop environment, however, i though it was called sugar-desktop not sucrose ), maybe i should have said that .. i thought you already knew that actually.

off topic i use Enlightenment E.21.8 my self WM (Window Manager), sorta a mix of everything desktop environment other wise..

But as stated in the reply on my bugreport I think, it is clear, that THAT sugar snippet shipped at the moment with Xfce does NOT make sense ...
