Adding Gnome-Games to menu

I am going on a flight to New York soon and thought "I need something to keep me busy on the plane.  But, no games in #!"

I went into Synaptic and searched for 'gnome-games' and installed with no problems.

Now, you may ask, how to start the games.  Well, I did this for about one day by typing in gnect for 'Four In A Row' but couldn't remember some of the weird names.

So, I edited my menu.xml file to help me quickly play my games.  If you want games too, follow these directions.

1) Install the games.
     in Synaptic search for 'gnome-games' and install, or
     in terminator type in 'sudo apt-get install gnome-games'

2) Open your menu.xml file
     in Crunchbang menu go to Preferences > Openbox Config > Edit menu.xml
     add the code below wherever you want your new 'Games' menu to show up

Enjoy playing games!
Dave.

Re: Adding Gnome-Games to menu

Or you could install the your games, and setup the Debian pipe menu as detailed here: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … date-menu/

and find your games in the Debian>games menu with the menu auto updating as you install more.

Re: Adding Gnome-Games to menu

For card games you could install Pysol which includes many games in one command: pysol

sudo apt-get install pysol pysol-cardsets

Re: Adding Gnome-Games to menu

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread but I am back smile

I am sort of hoping someone knows where I can get a nice mahjongg game for #!

I downloaded the Pysol and added it to my Openbox menu. I'm wanting to do this for my Dad's old 600X. I had Win98 on it and I couldn't get the Intel 2100 card to work! I reinstalled #! and it connects to our WPA-PSK network with no problem.

I'm confounded but yet pleased that it works.  smile

Re: Adding Gnome-Games to menu

If you don't want the gnome-games package, what about xmahjongg?


I'm a moderator here.  How are we doing?  Feedback is encouraged.
