Solitaire [SOLVED]

Post#1 by Brock » 19 Sep 2014, 02:51

I have been searching for a Solitaire game, on USM, to install on Porteus. I've searched "Solitaire", "Games", and "Cards", with only two results, which were NOT really solitaire. I'm really surprised at this, with all the claims that Linux makes about having thousands of packages available in the repositories, you'd think that there would be at least one or two real solitaire games available. Is Porteus somehow not able to access those? This is serious. Every OS has got to come with at least one basic solitaire game, doesn't it?

PlayOnLinux has games including the Microsoft Games pack from Windows 98. Freecell, Minecraft etc. See this thread for links to it:

Why install precious MB if you can play online?

http://www.solitairey.com/
or
https://games.yahoo.com/game/all-in-one ... flash.html

but if you want install. Try kpatience (kde)

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -g kpa

We could try to do something with a ubuntu package:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/fr/lucid/gnome-games

If the other propositions do not suit you.

FWIW This doesn't work with my RazorQT DE.

Well, I didn't really solve it. I just decided that I'd play solitaire on another machine. But today, I tried again to find a solitaire package using USM (Unified Slackware Package Manager). I updated the databases and ran a search for "games". A message came back that there were too many results. OK, I can understand that. So I searched for "Solitaire", and got 0 results. This is not high priority for me, but it is just ONE MORE THING that keeps me off of my Proteus machine. FYI, I did find and download a nice solitaire game on my Mint 17 Machine.
