As a test, I just now did a fresh install of 10.04 LTS (using a USB 
prepared with Ubuntu Usb Startup Disk Creator) to a 320GB external HD. 
Upgraded (135 pkgs) and then followed the instructions on the wiki's to 
add the ppa

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sugarteam/ppa
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sugar-remix

On reboot, I got a USR with no activities. I then used a 2nd USB to 
drag-drop surf-115.xo and Browse-115w.xo into the journal


http://people.sugarlabs.org/Tgillard/Browse-115w.xo  (This is an experimental browse which seems to work in USR)

I then started surf and connected to ASLO to download IRC-5; 
terminal-31; record-79; read Etexts-21 and  they all work.
