[Sugar-devel] Setup local network on the olpc with python

With Sugar Activities you need to test them under the Sugar
environment.  You can use Eclipse to write the code if you like (I use
Eric myself) but you won't be able to test from within the IDE.  You
already have the link to the FLOSS Manual "Make Your Own Sugar
Activities!", so I'd recommend skimming through the first few chapters
where testing under sugar-emulator is covered.  There is a Git
repository containing all the code examples and you could run a few of
them to try things out.  It sounds to me like you may have Sugar
installed but are not running your tests under it.

Many Linux distributions have Sugar included, and if you install their
packages you should have something workable.
