i would definitely advise against trying to use the standard emulation
images, as they take some work to get running.  I would advise instead
either building from source using sugar-jhbuild or installing the sugar
and activity packages from jani's personal archive.

try the second option first, following the instruuctions found here:
and here:

if that doesn't seem to work for you, you can build sugar yourself
without too much trouble; in a terminal first execute the following:
sudo apt-get remove sugar
sudo apt-get build-dep sugar

then follow the build instructions from the olpc website:

you may need to apt-get install git to get things started.

email back if you have trouble.  good luck,
