<pre wrap="">Thanks for the information about how to install the debian 'sucrose'.
I need to give that a try.
This should provide you a clean install of Sugar and a login manager:
1) Download the installer for soon-to-become-stable Debian Stretch:
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/">https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/</a>
2) When asked mid-way through install what to include, deselect all
3) Log in as root, and run this command:
apt install sucrose lightdm
<pre wrap="">My real concern is that the Sugar desktop as installed have an
identifiable version number (in Sugar it is shown in 'About My
Computer' in 'MySettings').
Please actually _use_ Sugar packaged for Debian, and then for each issue
you identify as in your opinion being wrong or missing, file a bugreport
so we can track it properly: <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting">https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting</a>
<pre wrap="">This problem is the Sugar developers.
Not sure I agree, but in any case the solution is _more_ developers.
Your diving in and testing actual use of almost-stable Debian will be a
real help for the few developers currently struggling to find time to
implement the marvellous vision of a perfected Sugar experience.
(later you can learn to make Debian packages and directly improve...)
Thanks for your input, looking forward to your experiences with Debian,
