Tonight I thought I'd take a look at Scratch & Squeak.
there are problems with both. I'm running Squeeze 19/4 with fxce4 as the GUI.
Squeak: selecting Squeak from the drop down menu brings up a dialogue which says there are several Squeak images, please select one. In fact there are no candidates to select from.
sudo apt-get install squeak gives me - unable to locate package Squeak.
Scratch: selecting from the drop down menu gives me a terminal type window. Briefly you see the Scratch name on the left of the screen header and then it becomes a normal header window. The screen perpetually refreshes, moving slightly across the desktop as it does so.
sudo apt-get install scratch returns - not available but referenced by another candidate. Package scratch has no installation candidate.
Neither appear in Synaptic.
Has anyone else encountered problems?
