Best Free Sudoku Puzzle, Generator and Solver for Linux

Post#1 by Obosan » 26 May 2014, 16:55

There are gnome sudoku, ksudoku and HoDoKu on linux.
USM did not find any sudoku in the repositories.
I would like to have sudoku.xzm which is optimal for Porteus xfce 3.0 i486.
Which sudoku software do you recommend to make a module for xfce?

I found it from google when one loads gnome sudoku on different desktop environment other than gnome, the selected cell will be blackened which is recognized as bug. I want to avoid this kind of behavior.

Your kind attention and recommendation to me would be highly appreciated.

Thanks Obosan. This post helped me realize a bug in USM. ksudoku SHOULD be found in USM. To fix this please open /etc/usm/files.conf and change the following lines:

Code: Select all

distro:slackware
files:CHECKSUMS.md5 MANIFEST.bz2 PACKAGES.TXT
extras:LIBS.TXT.gz
excludes:e f k kdei y
change this to

Code: Select all

distro:slackware
files:CHECKSUMS.md5 MANIFEST.bz2 PACKAGES.TXT
extras:LIBS.TXT.gz
excludes:e f k$ kdei$ y
There should be a dollar sign after two entries.

Then run: usm -u slackware

@slaxmax & @brokenman
I downloaded both and played. Thanks a lot for your replies. :Yahoo!:
By the way, the one I converted to ksudoku-4.10.5-i486-1.xzm by USM has 111.1MB including dependencies
and ksudoku-4.12.5-i486-1alien.xzm + libkdegames-4.12.5-i486-1alien.xzm have only 8.1MB.

Just for my curiosity, is there any way I can combine these latter two modules as one xzm.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon. :D

Wow that is really unacceptable. I will create a way for USM to choose only the required dependencies for certain applications.

To answer your curiosity:

Code: Select all

mkdir /tmp/unpacked
xzm2dir ksudoku-4.12.5-i486-1alien.xzm /tmp/unpacked
xzm2dir  libkdegames-4.12.5-i486-1alien.xzm /tmp/unpacked
dir2xzm /tmp/unpacked /tmp/my-new-module.xzm
rm -r /tmp/unpacked

Thank you for your prompt reply, brokenman!
When I activate ksudoku-4.12.5-i486-1alien.xzm + libkdegames-4.12.5-i486-1alien.xzm,
I get this message and can't play.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ksudoku
ksudoku: error while loading shared libraries: libkio.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I searched libkio / libkio.so / libkio.so.5 in USM but I could not search any related libraries. :sorry:
Though I found libkio.so.5 in /usr/lib/ which is link to libkio.so.5.10.5, I don't know how to solve the error.
Is this because of xfce D.E. in place of KDE4?

ksudoku is a KDE4 game so need a lot of deps from kde.
if brokenman manage to extract only needed libs from packages then produced module should be much smaller.

this is what i do in kiosk - i rely on single files rather than packages to keep it as small as it's possible.
kiosk is limited to the browser only - it will be much harder to achieve the same in desktop edition which may have big apps.

will see once new USM is out (i'm eager to test).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks fanthom! :)

Would you tell me when new USM is out in the near future?

Now I understand Ksudoku is KDE4 game and gnome Sudoku is for Gnome.
In addition to this I understand they need a lot of dependencies to download if I intend to play on xfce D.E.
I think I use Knoppix's Gnome Sudoku to print out for her for the moment.
If there is any better way for Gnome Sudoku, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

It is out now. I should clarify that it won't choose only the required libraries and extract them from a package. This is an interesting concept to make things faster but would probably break slackware compatibility in the end.

This means if you are using lxde and you want ksudoku it will want to pull all the KDE deps.

@Slaxmax Thanks for creating ksudoku module! :good:
As I went to the following link, I got a message as follows:
Slaxmax wrote:ksudoku for porteus XFCE i486 with all deps (20MB)
http://www.mediafire.com/download/9c99q ... 6-XFCE.xzm
This file is currently set to private.
When a resource is set to private by its owner, only the owner can access it. If you would like to request access to the file, please log in to your account.

If I can get the 20MB module for ksudoku, that will be great because it is less than 1/5 size of my current module.
I want to try it, so will you somehow manage to give me a opportunity to download it?
Thanks in advance!

It's very kind of you, Slaxmax, for re-uploading fixed module.
I downloaded it and confirmed it is functional as you mentioned.
Thank you again for your kind support! :Rose:
