[Sugar-devel] Glucose and Frame

I'm all new in the Sugar community, but I'm very interested in Sugar's
very simple and intuitive interface for my grand parents who are
completely new to computers. As I need a light and very strong system,
I decided to base this on a distrib I know very well : ArchLinux. I
met here another Archer who has almost the same needs and same
interests, and together we decided to package Sugar for ArchLinux.
That's for the background.
Now the project has a little bit progressed, and I'm ending with
Glucose almost packaged :
hippo-canvas, hulahop, python-xklavier, squeak, sugar, sugar-artwork,
sugar-base, sugar-datastore, sugar-presence-service, sugar-toolkit
(I'm missing etoys and pyabiword). All this is now installed on my
system and I wanted to make a little check of where I was. And
surprise, after launching "sugar" in a console, no Frame ! Metacity is
launched, together with a nice big cursor, but no Frame or Activity
Circle. Same with "sugar-emulator" which opens a nice Xephyr window
with a black screen and the famous cursor inside, but nothing more.
And indeed it seems that the sugar script ends with no error or maybe
forks to the background but I have no trace of it in "ps".
This leads to the simple question : Do I have a misconfiguration here,
a bug, or am I simply missing a packet ?
Woo, such a long message for a simple question, yes I know, sorry. But
I needed to introduce myself too to your community ;)
