Sugar is the core of the OLPC Human Interface. Its goal is to turn the Laptop into a fun, easy to use, social experience that promotes sharing and learning.

Sugar running on Fedora


Getting started

You can explore the Sugar interface in our Getting Started guide.

Note the "Frame key" Key frame.jpg at the top-right corner of your keyboard, which toggles the presence of the Frame on and off the screen. (The Frame is the black border around the screen that holds the activity taskbar, clipboard, buddy list, etc.)

You can restart Sugar by pressing the Ctrl-Alt-Erase keys simultaneously.
