Hey, I got sugar-jhbuild to work today! On Ubuntu 9.04! Now if
somebody would fix the Ubuntu Sugar

I was able to make the sugar packages work by adding a gconf setting:

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/favorites_layout -t string ring-layout

I think this will be fixed by adding the right gconf schema to the
package, and hopefully will be fixed in version 0.84.

There are still lots of non-fatal error messages in the terminal, but
it looks like these can be ignored. I used sugar-emulator --dpi=200.
Logging in to a Sugar session from gdm worked too.

        I tried sugar-emulator --dpi=200 and I got flashing screen on
9.04 and no joy.--Dennis Daniels 00:29, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

            Here's the video of the above not working:

Previously, it was thought that a problem with Xephyr and dbus was at
fault, but the above workaround shows that it's a Sugar packaging

Please do not shoot the sysadmin. ^_^
