Installing Scratch 1.4 on other Linux

Hello!

Today, I'll tell you how to install Scratch 1.4 on other Linux (Fedora, CentOS, etc).

1. Download Scratch 1.4 .deb file: http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu//pool/universe/s/scratch/scratch_1.4.0.6~dfsg1-5~ubuntu12.04.1_all.deb
2. Open Terminal, navigate to the directory, where you downloaded the file. Use the command “cd”. (See http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/cd.1p.html for more info)
3. Type in the terminal window:
$ ar x ./scratch_1.4.0.6~dfsg1-5~ubuntu12.04.1_all.deb
4. Extract the “data.tar.gz” file.
$ tar -xvzf data.tar.gz
5. Go to the newly created “usr” directory:
$ cd usr
6. Sign in as root using “su”:
$ su root
7. Now enter these commands:
$ cd bin
$ cp ./scratch /usr/bin/scratch
$ cd ../share/application-registry
$ cp ./scratch.applications /usr/share/application-registry/scratch.applications
$ cd ../applications
$ cp ./scratch.desktop /usr/share/applications/scratch.desktop
$ cd ../pixmaps
$ cp ./scratch.xpm /usr/share/pixmaps/scratch.xpm
$ cd ../scratch
$ cp *.* /usr/share/scratch
$ cp -R ./locale /usr/share/scratch/locale
$ cp -R ./Media /usr/share/scratch/Media
$ cp -R ./Projects /usr/share/scratch/Projects
8. Install squeak-vm on your system:
Fedora/CentOS:
dnf install squeak-vm
OpenMandriva/Mageia:
urpmi squeak-vm
Then enter “exit” command (with no quotes) in the terminal window.
9. Enter:
squeak /usr/share/scratch/Scratch.image
Done! Scratch is installed on your Linux computer. Have fun! :-)

Could you put 2.0 on other linux operating systems? (Specifically Raspbian)

This is a signature. To put stuff here, go to https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/ and go to “Change your Signature” which is at the bottom left of the page.

Yeah, I'll try. I've got a Raspberry Pi.

(But my main PC is running OpenMandriva)

Installing Scratch 1.4 on other Linux

Installing Scratch 2.0 on Linux
32-bit users on i386 or i586
For 32-bit users the installation process is easy.
1. Download Adobe AIR 2.6 here:
http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/2.6/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
2. Open your downloads directory in your file manager and allow the file to be ran as a program.
In KDE, you right-click the file, go to Properties, open the Permissions tab and check “Is executable”
3. In GNOME, double-click the file and the installer will run. In KDE, open terminal, navigate to the downloads directory, sign in as root using “su root” command and enter:
$ sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
4. Download Scratch 2.0 from https://download.scratch.mit.edu/scratch2download/sa/Scratch-453.air, double-click the file and install it. Done!
64-bit users on x86_64
1. Download Adobe AIR 2.6 here:
http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/2.6/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
2. Open your downloads directory in your file manager and allow the file to be ran as a program.
In KDE, you right-click the file, go to Properties, open the Permissions tab and check “Is executable”.
3. Read this manual and follow the instructions for your Linux distro:
https://helpx.adobe.com/air/kb/install-air-2-64-bit.html
4. In GNOME, double-click the file and the installer will run. In KDE, open terminal, navigate to the downloads directory, sign in as root using “su root” command and enter:
sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
4. Download Scratch 2.0 from https://download.scratch.mit.edu/scratch2download/sa/Scratch-453.air, double-click the file and install it. Done!
Raspbian or ARM users
There is currently no way to run Scratch 2.0 on Raspbian. There is a hard method, but it might break your Pi if you do something wrong. If you still want to try the method, comment on my profile page. But before doing this method, backup your NOOBS installer.

Done! But please, be careful with the method with the Raspberry Pi. Please, make a backup of the NOOBS installer before you do the method.

Why doesn't raspbian support updated flash support? The online editor will not work on the pi, and I can't update flash.

Adobe Flash Player for Linux is not supported on ARM.

please add the following:
for raspberry pi users it is much simpler
just enter
sudo apt-get install scratch
in the command line

do you like siri, alexa, cortana, or google assistant, but can't buy an iphone, echo, or google home?

then try alice!

alice is a wonderful virtual assistant that works on linux and is tested on raspberry pi*
she can play music, search online, answer questions, tell jokes, give you the date and time, and plenty of other things

*you may need to install additional software like python 2, libttspico-utils, and timidity

I'm sorry, but this is not a guide for Raspberry Pi. On Raspbian, Scratch 1.4 is already preinstalled.

But if you need Scratch 2.0 on your Pi, I posted a guide for it here: http://pastebin.com/4GJSEyHu

Will you mention that that is the preferred method to install Scratch on Debian GNU/Linux and derivatives (like Ubuntu)?

Which device are you using? You can install the official offline editor on Linux still.

How do I install on LFS?
If you want to use normal Scratch:
1) Install Squeak 3 or 4
2) Get the stuff from https://github.com/LLK/Scratch_1.4
Or you can use Squeak 5 and NuScratch.
