Talk about how to use and get the most out of Activities for the XO.

Lost Browse activity after updating

Postby keila » Mon Jan 11, 2010 4:34 am

I updated via the control panel, but when the OLPC restarted, it no longer had the Browse activity - so - how do I get to browse the net??? Have tried updating again (to 801 - works, but still no Browse), and updating to 8.2.1, but my OLPC doesn't recognise 8.2.1 it tells me it doesn't exist (or something to that effect).

Thanks for any assistance. Keila (Australia)

Hi Keila,

You need to use another computer to download the activities pack to an USB drive or SD Card to get back the Browse Activity (Are you sure you are missing just Browse or all activities?).

If you are sure you want only the browse activity, you can get it from SugarLabs http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/addon/4024.

If you do not mind wiping out all data on your XO, follow directions here
No-fail update http://wiki.laptop.org/go/No-fail_update
Clean-install procedure for Advanced users http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Clean-install_procedure

A more illustrative page is available here http://wiki.laptop.org/go/USB_update
Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. Have downloaded the Browse activity from the link provided (I do have the other activities...most of them, anyway). Not sure how to install the downloaded file, but will have a go... Cheers, Keila

Here is the manual page for ways of installing an Activity (including downloading to USB):
