It runs in squeak on linux and uses the OS filesystem permissions.
Bit confused here
AFAIK there is no Linux version
Scratch runs in Squeak and is therefore multiplatform. To run in linux install squeak, extract the windows binary and then runalternatively it runs in wine. Apparently they are working on a linux installer.Code:squeak /pathto/scratch.image
Have you actually tried this
Do all the features work?
I think there was a problem with sound, I didn't fully test it. I installed it on a friends daughters ubuntu, and she was using it for a while - she didn't have any problems and apparently quite enjoyed using it.
works ok here.
Reviving an older thread here, due to on going wrangling between myself and an ICT Teacher.
I've looked at the latest version of Scratch and tried the ini file edits to show only certain drives, however, this doesn't work and only shows the default location.
Because of the problems that have been mentioned previously in this thread, I'm reticent to installing it on the local machines.
An IT teacher here does outreach to primary school pupils who I wouldn't expect to take advantage of the chance to trawl through the C: drive. But if the software is installed, there is a high chance that some of our pupils will have a look at see what they can do.
Do the security and convenience issues that arise from this software's problems warrant not installing, or do you think that there is not much of a problem and I should install?
It works ok here with 1.2
Anyone figured out how to get this running off a network share yet? Dont really want to have to manually set it up on individual machines
I get the following error when trying to run it:
Could not open sqeak image file '\.\server\scratch\Scratch.image' even though the file is there and accessible
