Unable to install updates, games, downloads, etc.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 11, 2009
When ever i try to install my updates or install downloaded content from the internet it is saying I need to run a "<something> config -a" application before trying to install. whenever I copy and past the name of this application to the run window and click run, it doesn't work. I am also a new user so it is kind of confusing to use. A little help?
HOWTO: tunnel GNOME/KDE/etc. through SSH
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 20, 2007
Besides offering the user a remote shell, SSH can also run X11 applications on a remote computer. This extends even to desktop environments such as GNOME and KDE, as they consist of a collection of separate applications.
I have used this method with two computers running Kubuntu 7.04. However, the computers do not necessarily need to run the same environment or even the same distribution.
WARNING: I offer NO support for this guide; i.e. if your computer a splode, it's not my fault.
1. On the server, install a desktop environment and OpenSSH server, if they are not already present. An X server is not required.
sudo aptitude install openssh-server
2. On the client, install an X server, the xterm terminal emulator, and the OpenSSH client. These should already be present on most distributions.
3. On the client, press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to show a terminal. Log in and type
xinit /usr/bin/xterm -- :1
to open a new X session (on "display 1") with only a terminal on
MiniHOWTO: Run native Linux games from X without KDE (Gnome).
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2006
KDE eats appreciable amount of resources and games may be laggy even on fast machines. I run my favorite UT 2003 from within it's own X session and it looks better and runs smoother. Here is how.
Warning: Disadvantages of this method is that we need to disable kdm (gdm) at startup. And to shut down KDE (Gnome) when gaming... Good thing is that you get a real performance boost.
Open a terminal emulator and do (Gnome users replace nano with gedit):
sudo cp /etc/X11/default-display-manager /etc/X11/default-display-manager.orig
sudo nano /etc/X11/default-display-manager
This file contains only one line:
/usr/bin/kdm (or /usr/bin/gdm in case of Gnome)
Delete this line and save a file.
Find out what is your game's executable and remember it's full path. In my case it's /usr/local/games/ut2003/ut2003, yours may be different.
Now close KDE (Gnome) and reboot (reboot needed just once for the changes to take effect). When the system boots up you will stay in tex

Sound in kde games run under gnome desktop?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 23, 2003
Hello everyone -- I'm a relative newcomer to Linux, running Ximian Desktop 2's version of Gnome as my primary UI on RedHat 9.0. I cannot get KDE apps' (oh, okay, I confess, KDE games....) sound to work when running under Gnome. If I start a KDE login session, sound works just fine.
I've had other problems with Gnome's esound server, so I don't use it -- I just use OSS. I suppose the KDE apps are looking for the aRts sound server and give up on sound when they don't find it. Is there any way I can get KDE games to bypass aRts and use OSS? Is there some other sound system that runs under Gnome that can supply a sound system interface the KDE apps will use?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer!

Any Linux compatible online multiplayer combat type games?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 15, 2004
I have been looking for some good free online multi-player games. Some need you to down load things that are only compatible with Windows or they require Internet Explorer or they may not work right. I am getting a little burnt going through endless lists.
I tried Modern War Militia. I wasn't impressed with it but would like to find something similiar to it. For those who are unfamilar it is basically a war game where you create your state, within a country, build your army, etc and go to war.
I have a new computer and DSL, but I do not have a 3d graphics accelerator anymore, at least for a couple of more months, I hope.
Anyone have any ideas or recomendations for some good games like this?

I have two computers at home. One 1.8ghz, one 600mhz. They are directly connected through a crossover cat 6 cable. I have cable internet and I can get the internet working and can transfer files across them locally in Windows XP (easiest OS to check if everything actually works first - no faults in hardware, etc). The 1.8ghz has an 80gb harddrive and a 12gb harddrive (seperate physical drives), and the 600mhz has a 4gb crappy harddrive about to die.
I have a brother who is Windows XP tainted, and needs it for games like Condition Zero, rally games, Halo, etc... I also enjoy those games, and we LAN it up currently (btw, Condition Zero LAN is possible!! just both create a custom server, then one type in "slist" and get the other computer's IP LAN address, then type "connect [ip]" and there ya go! you can have bots in there too! (smart asses!!) use bot_add_t and bot_add_ct and bot_kick)
anyway, I want to be able to still LAN games, but I want t

Is it true that most of the source code for Linux games, for example Urban terror, tremulous, alian arena, and all of the other major and native linux games are from source code that was realised in 1997? Why doesn't linux have games that at least compare with windows games?
