[[User:Patrick.surry|PDS]]: IMHO this painting activity is much more fun & kid-friendly than the one that ships with the XO.  Much easier to get started, choose colors, and lots of fun features like lots of stamps, great sound effects, magic wand and so on.

''These instructions are a bit old.  There is now a TuxPaint-2.xo that installs from Browse.''
+
With new Sugar system (from year 2012), just install TuxPaint from here (e.g. version 6): http://activities.sugarlabs.org//en-US/sugar/addon/4088
-
Tux Paint must be installed in a TuxPaint.activity directory because of the way it was built. Both /usr/share/activities/TuxPaint.activity and /home/olpc/Activities/TuxPaint.activity will work. At the command line, you can use wget to download Tux Paint. Then unzip TuxPaint-1.xo in the desired directory. NB. for recent builds you also have to fix activity.info (see [[Talk:Tux Paint]]).
+
If you are familiar with terminal, you can download and install it with running these on user '''olpc''' (not root).
-
You will need to install libpaper and restart sugar. As root, "yum install libpaper" will install libpaper. As root, "telinit 3" followed by "telinit 5" will restart sugar.
+
wget http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/downloads/latest/4088/addon-4088-latest.xo

Emulator users: TuxPaint runs at 1200x900 so looks slightly odd in qemu at 1024x768.  VMware or CVS version of qemu may work better.

Tux Paint on the OLPC XO

Tux Paint

Tux Paint is a drawing app for tiny kids. Most 3-year-old kids and many 2-year-old kids are able to use it, yet 10-year-old kids (and kid-like adults) enjoy it too. Tux Paint features Tux the penguin, like Clippy but not so annoying. Tux Paint uses stereo sound according to where the mouse pointer is. Tux Paint is translated into about 70 different languages, including big-alphabet and right-to-left ones.

PDS: IMHO this painting activity is much more fun & kid-friendly than the one that ships with the XO. Much easier to get started, choose colors, and lots of fun features like lots of stamps, great sound effects, magic wand and so on.

Installing

With new Sugar system (from year 2012), just install TuxPaint from here (e.g. version 6): http://activities.sugarlabs.org//en-US/sugar/addon/4088

If you are familiar with terminal, you can download and install it with running these on user olpc (not root).

wget http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/downloads/latest/4088/addon-4088-latest.xo
sugar-install-bundle tux_paint-6.xo


(is sugar-install-bundle same as 'cd /home/olpc/Activities/ ; unzip PATH/tux_paint-6.xo" ? )

Restart Sugar (or reboot computer).

And then use 'List view (Ctrl+2)' to mark TuxPaint to favourite and it will show on home screen.

Installation-package (xo) takes 67M and can be deleted after installation.

Installed size of TuxPaint is 88M.

Saved images go to /home/olpc/.tuxpaint/saved

Un-Installing

rm -rf /home/olpc/Activities/TuxPaint.activity

(How to do this without terminal?)

Security needs

Tux Paint wants to print, scan /usr/share/fonts, and cooperate with a separate clip-art package.
