Dear Ms. Janissa

Greetings from KMRF

We,  KMR Foundation in Hyderabad, India have been engaged in community programs with specific goals like
         1. 100 % Immunization to Children
         2. Care of Expectant mothers
         3. Supporting Education
         4. Skill development and training for youth for employment.

One of our team members is Satya Prasad whom you have contacted now.

We have adopted near by village School and engaged in OLPC-- program with them ( class 4 children of local village school)

Now it is just over one year that we have been doing several activities on XOs.

As we also need help from the program developers for many activities that will
be meaningful and helpful to the children.

Children love to handle this "Tux Maths" activity as it enhances their mental ability.
As this XO-1 --VERSION--- is the first and earliest one we also stuck with some problems.

We need the program developers to add --- " 3 Digits "---- operations in "Tux Maths"
as we have only up to 2 digits. We need some activities to help the children learn simple English.

Coming to answer your query

There are are 2 options as you do not have internet --- you can go for the procedure mentioned  below.

1. Down load the " Tux Math" from Sugar Labs in a single image (not as a folder / Unizip file format)
    and save in a pen Drive.
2. Insert the Pen Drive on the XO--USB --slot.

3. Click on the journal---- you will see the pen Drive symbol/sign. Click on it.

4. Choose "Tux Math" file and click start.

5. This will install the "Tux Math"  activity and it will be seen on the Home Page.

 For more information on KMRF  Please see

You are welcome to interact with us.

thanks & regardas--

Subject: question: how to load tux math on XO laptop

I saw your November 2010 post on the OLPCnews forum about using TuxMath on the XO laptop.  I am Janissa Balcomb with Laptops to Lesotho.  We use XO-1 laptops in a school in Lesotho, Africa.  I would like to have TuxMath and TuxTyping on the XO laptops, but I do not know how to install them without an .xo file version.
We do not have internet so we cannot download directly onto the XO laptop.
Can you explain to me how you installed the TuxMath?  Was there a website that was helpful to you to do this?
Thank you kindly,

satyaprasad donthu
