xo-get doesn't run

Postby garth » Sun Nov 16, 2008 9:46 pm

I installed xo-get (download was almost instantaneous, which seems odd) from the Activities/All page on the OLPC site. However, when I try to run it, it seems to load (takes a long time), but then nothing happens (it goes back to the main screen). Sugar 'shows' it running (although it is called 'sugar-shell'), but when I click on it, nothing launches.

I have just recently updated as a clean install (newest build 767).

Am I missing something? Any ideas?

I don't know if xo-get works under 767/Sugar 8.2... but the good news it you don't need it anymore! :D

Hover over the XO symbol in the Home View and you will now have "Control Panel" as an option. The Control Panel has a "Software Update" module that you can use to keep your current software up-to-date and download new actives, too!

Silly name. Great stuff for your XO laptop.
