I managed to figure out why my Activities weren't visible. Only
Favorite Activities show up in the ring, and none of mine were marked as
Favorites. I changed to the List View, marked them as Favorites, and
all was well. Almost.
Of all the Activities, I was only able to get Write, Terminal, and Chat
to come up. The others just did the pulsing icon thing for three
minutes and vanished.
I tried to install my own Activities by copying them into the Journal
from a thumb drive. This didn't work. The Copy icon in the Journal did
not show the "Copy to Journal" option. Also, I was unable to switch
back to viewing the Journal after selecting the thumb drive option. It
just froze up.
This morning I tried again, and found that the Journal had emptied
itself out. It does that in the Xubuntu version of Sugar too.
I am attaching a file with error messages I get when running Sugar this
morning. I hope it will be of some use to you.
This morning I also discovered that Java wasn't working. Run java with
or without arguments and you get a bunch of error messages. That
convinced me its time to give up on openSUSE.
I have decided that the only way I'm going to get the robust Sugar
environment I need is to run sugar-jhbuild on the latest Fedora. That,
I believe, will give me something close to what the Sugar developers are
using. I gave up on installing Fedora from the Live CD because it
seemed to need more memory than I had available, but there is an install
DVD also available so I'm going to try that.
