I installed task- sugar and dependencies, rebooted
I selected it at login, but the only thing that happens is that mouse pointer change to a large arrow, on top of the (image of the) login screen.
I was just curious to try it, and have not tried anything to get it to work.
Not important for me but I can try something if someone want to debug.

I see it got updated but still same result here on all of three tested installs on 64 bit cauldron machines where other DE work:
Â§ i7n workstation with ati proprietary driver, updated from mga5
Â§ Centrino vPro Nvidia Quadro laptop with Nvidia driver, updated from mga5
Â§ Centrino Duo laptop with ati GPU using xorg vesa, fresh install 6_d1+updates
Is it really correct that sugar-base is version 0.98.0-7.mga6, while all other parts seem to be version 0.108.1-3.mga6 ?
Is it working for most installs and I am just unlucky?
If broken for most, IMO we can not ship it in mga6.
I set it to release blocker to get it investigated.

as this isn't in a iso media (and if it is, why ?), I don't see how it could be release blocker

You're right, Manuel, it's not on an iso, thanks :-)
Ah. Thanks for the correction on release blocker.
According to Bug 1969 sugar was working in mga4.
I have no idea if it was working in mga5.
Hi, thanks for reporting this bug.
We are sorry, but we no longer maintains this version of Mageia. Please upgrade to the latest version and reopen this bug against that version if this bug exists there.
As a result we are setting this bug to RESOLVED:OLD
Tried now on mga7, an install which have not had this installed before:
Installed task-sugar, rebooted, at login selected Sugar;
Then there are four questions each asked in centre of screen in full screen mode.
It asks for name, i accepted mine. But the questions of selecting colour, sex, and age can not be answered because the big mouse cursor only works to click the next and continue buttons at left and right screen bottom. To be more precise there is not even any visible alternative to click except for the age question.
So the bug may be it is unable to present click-able alternatives? A missing dep?
And i can not go further because at question of age the next button is greyed.
Only exit i found was to kill X; Ctrl+Alt+ twice backspace, and i find myself in login manager.
Tested with login managers SDDM and GDM, same result.
IMO this should finally get fixed, or dropped.
sugar 0.108.1-3.mga6 =>
To be able to have the icons when launching sugar (from Plasma but after from SDDM), i had to install the package python2-gi-cairo as it is a python2 application (at least in the packaged version).
In Cauldron, the version is 0.116 (is this version support python3 ?).
Ah, thank you Nicolas, now it works!
So the depencency python2-gi-cairo should get added to task-sugar, or maybe better sugar-base
Alternatively drop sugar desktop, because from this bug it seems it is not much used in Mageia...
See comment 10Summary:
Sugar desktop: fail logging in =>
Sugar desktop: missing dependency
I think we should drop it or look if upstream has released sources against Python3, not Python2, which we want to be dropped.
Yes sugar version on Cauldron seem to be 0.116-2, while task-sugar is 0.112-5
Ported to Python3
"Either it builds or gets nuked"
See comment 10 =>
Solution or drop it. see comment 10 +

Sugar was ported to python3 after mga7 was released and starts OK in
Cauldron after I applied a patch from upstream.
However I don't know if it's used by anyone.
With the maintainer gone (José Jorge) and not much used i suggest dropping Sugar desktop.
Will probably get dropped
