Hi, Adam

I have been unable to get the TuxMath from SugarLabs GitHub to work. The 'failed to start' message means that no 'set_canvas' was issued within the timeout. It is likely Nathan's wrapper issues set_canvas since TuxMath (and GCompris) are not aware of it. The real question is does TuxMath work?

It worked consistently last night on a cleanly reflashed 13.2.8 on XO-1 so the answer is yes, ~126KB TuxMath 3.1 wrapper on 7MB TuxMath 3 works reliably, if the right magic sauce is applied with yum en route.

(Reproducing the exact steps is my goal however, as I'm tired of relying on magic sauce, so I'll keep working on it +)

The GCompris team is actively adding activities so the size of the install may be increasing. GCompris includes TuxPaint as one of its activities, but it can be executed independently.

I often use the Terminal activity and execute Gnome applications directly in sugar (e.g. $gcompris). This is also a test whether a problem is with the Gnome-side install or with the wrapper.

Ah well I could not reproduce this on the very same XO-1 when cleanly
reflashed, an extremely well-tested unit in quite perfect condition.

Possibly yum install of certain libraries is needed, unlike in times past.

Will try to get to the bottom of this all with Nathan Riddle and others in
the coming week, to understand what's wrong with the installation recipe!

Certainly frustrating after a week, that I still cannot get a clean install
routine for TuxMath & GCompris on 13.2.8 on XO-1...

(At least XO-4 installs are easy!)
