Objective of this blog post as follows.
Myself working with http://www.fsftn.org for past two years in spreading FOSS by giving presentations at various Engineering colleges. across Tamil Nadu.
While doing two days FOSS workshop at Vellalar Engineering college, Erode We (FSFTN) as a team initiated a project called “punnagai” to take Sugarlabs.org learning platform to school children’s. In order to accomplish the work, We planned two initial works.
1. Tamil Translations at Sugarlabs.org
2. Bringing Sugar Desktop into Ubuntu & Debian
3. Tamil Manuals – For school teachers and
First task was completed during mid of September 2010. Second task is in progress.
I have been trying to bring http://www.sugarlabs.org desktop + applications into Debian and Ubuntu Distributions in-order to take this to school children’s for their computer learning.
Follow the steps to build Live Debian on RPM or Debian based Linux distributions.
How to build
In non-Debian systems (Fedora, etc)
1. Get the live-helper source code
git clone git://git.debian.net/git/debian-live/live-helper.git live-helper
In Debian systems
apt-get install live-helper subversion
svn co https://sugarlivecd.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/sugarlivecd cd ./sugarlivecd/livecd lh_clean ; lh_build
The creation takes time, and you will need to be connected to the internet.
We are looking for more volunteers to take this too many schools and improve the Translation in terms Quality and
