4) run this command:

   service lightdm start

5) in the greeter, change to Sugar rather than the default X session,

6) log in as the non-root user created during install.

Existing bugs reproduced;

- Write #848838 "constant flicker of cursor and document" is most
  likely AbiWord #851052 (orphaned), and I'm working to test an
  AbiWord patch for it,

- Browse #848840 "does not start, complains about collabwrapper",

- Journal #848841 "multiple select does not show actions toolbar" is
  fixed upstream, though I've not got the exact commit handy,

New bug reported for Jukebox, waiting for the bug number; possibly
related to #554906 but also a problem with Python path, fixed upstream
sugar-toolkit-gtk3 495eed8 "Prepend instead of append to path".

For what it is worth;

- #849092 "Port to Python 3 and python3-gst-1.0" is not yet planned to
  be fixed upstream, we're still on Python 2.x, but I do appreciate
  the problem.

The install experience was smooth and worked well, but I'm entirely
used to it by now.  ;-)
