Yes, that's the correct method for installing sugar-toolkit-gtk3 on
Ubuntu 18.04, so perhaps you are not testing correctly; make sure you
use python2, as the Ubuntu team for 18.04 have only packaged for


python2 -c 'import sugar3'

However, if you want to work on Python 3, you will have to upgrade
from Ubuntu 18.04, using a package name python3-sugar3, which is
available in Debian but not yet available in Ubuntu,

Choose either;

1.  install the Debian unstable package python-sugar3 0.116 and the
experimental package python3-sugar3 0.116, or;

2.  remove the package python-sugar3 and use the Native Sugar method, 

3.  install Sugar Live Build as a virtual machine.
