For extra information about this:

The program 'ToolKid' looks like a educational tool for teaching
programming concepts based on Logo.

It may be possible to replicate some of the functionality to the Logo
tools currently available and I can only see the following paths in
order of least work and greatest benefit:

 1) Get in touch with the makers of ToolKid and persuade them to make it
Open Source software. They don't have to make their content free and you
could even pay them to license the code as GPL for instance.
 2) Convince the makers of ToolKid to make a proprietary port to Ubuntu
and tie it's working on Ubuntu to the contract.
 3) Find and/or develop the existing available Logo teaching tools
available in the repository and convince the MCGO to use that instead.
See eToys and KTurtle in the repositories.
 4) Develop fixes for wine that enable the windows version of toolkid to
run under ubuntu.
 5) Install windows xp on all your machines and use that instead of

Looks like you've got your work cut out, good luck and let us know how
it goes and what route you take.

Best Regards, Martin Owens
