Installing onto the OLPC

To install the latest stable release of Fractionauts onto OLPC, go to Fractionauts' Activity Page.

To compile and install our application on the OLPC we used Sugar Activity Quick Start. To create a .xo file, run ./ dist_xo inside the Sugar OS's Terminal Activity. The .xo file can be found in /dist.

Once we created the .xo file we copied it onto a flash drive and plugged it into the OLPC

Open the .xo file on the OLPC to install and launch the game. If you have a previous version of the game installed on your OLPC, delete the .Activity file and relaunch the new .xo file to overwrite it.


To reduce package size, the art assets are archived at this repo.
