Emulation

Linux

Ubuntu

Rating: Incredibly easy.

  1. Open Synaptic (System > Administration > Synaptic package manager)
  2. Search for "sugar"
  3. Install sugar, sugar-emulator, sugar-activities, and anything else you want

Thanks to Jani Monoses, who made the .deb packages and got them included in the Ubuntu sources!

Debian-based

Rating: Pretty darn easy.

Open up a terminal and add to your sources list...

$ sudo -s
# echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jani/ubuntu gutsy main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sugar.list
# apt-get update

Then apt-get as root.

# apt-get install sugar sugar-emulator sugar-activities

RPM-based

Rating: Mildly painful, but probably getting better soon.

You can either use an emulator (moderately easy) or run sugar-jhbuild itself (hard).

Windows

Rating: Painless, but less flexible and sometimes slow.

Use the QEMU all-in-one zip-file installer - this easy install package was created by Mitra, a high school student from Illinois.

OS X

Rating: Tricky.

Emulation is currently the only sane way to go.
