At this point Sugar on Ubuntu is unusable broken.  Activity Central
has signed a 12 month contract with to create and maintain
Ubuntu on Sugar.  I hope that by Aug we will have a usable set of
packages which can be test on the XO-1.5.

As all ways, community support is appreciated.  A working Sugar on
Ubuntu is just one of several protects which I feel need to be nudged
into moving forward.... and I am just 'putting my money where my mouth
is' to make it happen.
