Thanks for reporting this.

Whether it works or not depends on the version of Debian or Ubuntu you
are using.  The sugar-toolkit module is for GTK 2, and was last packaged;

* for Debian 9 (Stretch),
* for Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial).

It was dropped because Rsvg was dropped, in turn because Rsvg was not

You will need sugar-toolkit module to run any Sugar activities that
depend on GTK 2.  You will also need sugar-toolkit as part of porting
any of these activities to GTK 3; because you must verify the user
experience is unchanged.  We saw recently with the Bichos activity how
important this is.

For OLPC OS my package archive has sugar-toolkit for Ubuntu 18.04, and
an unmaintained Rsvg package.

What changes do you propose for development-environment.md?
