Sugar Blend

The Sugar Blend is a Pure Blend of the learning platform Sugar.

Currently (Mar 2017) it is possible to build a debian live-builder image using live-builder of testing.

Building

The prototype was created using the instructions at: https://debian-live.alioth.debian.org/live-manual/stable/manual/html/live-manual.en.html

The following is a scripted reconstruction of a process to build a i386 build that boots straight into Sugar. It may evolve to something completely different. At the moment it was the simplest possible instantiation of the Sugar Blend idea.

Do this in a new directory (e.g. mkdir sugar-live and cd sugar-live):

lb config --architectures i386 --linux-packages "linux-image linux-headers" --linux-flavours 586 --debian-installer live

mkdir -p config/includes.chroot/etc/skel/

cat <<EOF > config/includes.chroot/etc/skel/.xsession
#!/bin/bash
sugar
exit
EOF

cat <<EOF > config/package-lists/desktop.list.chroot
sucrose
xserver-xorg
sugar-session
xinit
lightdm
EOF

sudo lb build

Download

This image is a pre-alpha build. It is straight debian+sugar (testing march 2017) with a tweak for #848840.
