Here [1] is the patched version of Tuxmath that work on Sugar 0.96+  (*) !

To sum up the thread, there was 3 issues:
- In activity.info, the property "service_name" should be renamed
- In activity.info, the property value "exec" should NOT be prefixed by
"sugar-activity" because the "tuxmath-activity" value is not a Python class
but a shell file,
- I've patched the .XO file on Windows (shame on me :-), so all binary/shell
files has lost their "x" flag.

These 3 issues give me the strange way of working described in my previous
- Non patched activity don't work,
- Activity patched after install work because the "tuxmath-activity" has
been executed a first time,
- Activity patched before install don't work because the "tuxmath-activity"
script can't be executed.

Lot of time spent but I think that lot of children in Madagascar, Haiti,
East Timor or elsewhere will enjoy to play to their favorite activity in
Sugar 0.96+ :-)

Thanks a lot Daniel, Alan and Gonzalo to help me to understand the issue.

Best regards from France.
