First, I want to praise whoever put together the Sugar packages for Fedora 10. After struggling with Xubuntu and with sugar-jhbuild on openSUSE I finally have a sugar test environment where everything seems to work! It was well worth wiping out my openSUSE install and starting over with a new distribution. I'll probably do the same to my Xubuntu box eventually.
Second, now that I have this I want to perfect collaboration on my two Activities, Read Etexts and View Slides. Unfortunately, I am convinced that collaboration in View Slides that involves sending large Zip archives over the network is not and never will be practical. What I'm thinking about now is making the person "sharing" a slide show see only the image being viewed on the XO that has the full presentation. The master XO would page through the slides and those sharing would follow along. I'm not sure that's practical, either. While I'm figuring this out, what I'd really like to do is release a version of View Slides that has no collaboration at all. This would mean hiding the control on the Activity toolbar that supports collaboration. When I figure out something intelligent to do with collaboration I'll restore it. Is this possible, and how would I go about doing it?
