My son and I are playing around with LOGO programming on a Raspberry Pi (in Raspbian). We ran into a problem with the current package (v 5.5) not properly interpreting arrow key input: https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/33677/arrow-keys-output-scancodes-in-ucblogo

The current version of UCBLogo, according to https://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~bh/logo.html, is 6.0 (released in late 2008).

Is there a reason that http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/u/ucblogo/ only has the 5.5 version? Can the package be updated to 6.0 from the source on https://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~bh/logo.html?

Check the Debian package tracker: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/ucblogo.

The maintainer has stopped his work on this package (orphaned in July 2015). There won't be no update unless someone takes over the maintenance. For now you should probably build it for yourself.

  • Thanks! I did not know about tracker.debian.org. Is there a good community/resource available for helping me resolve specific build errors? I tried building from source last night, but ran into a few roadblocks. Jul 22, 2015 at 0:28

    @JacobCarpenter I have no idea about resources, but posting a question on the problem after some efforts of your own would always be welcomed here. Good luck!
