KDE SC Games in Lubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 10, 2014
I've got two simple questions:
1. is it possible to get a single game rather than the entire "kdegames" package? for example sudo apt-get install KGoldrunner.
2. would installing kdegames, a single game, or a couple of them also install the entire KDE package and/or a bunch of extra stuff? I had that happen once when I installed KTorrent
Games and Spring engine Spring1944 1944 ZeroK etc
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2011
OK for Ubuntu 10.10 64bit
I actually installed from Applications/Ubuntu Software Center
Installed Spring Engine and Spring Lobby
It was outdated for some games that require newer version so:
I added these to the software center / edit / software sources:
Click ADD button and add these sources:
Or others do it this way:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:spring/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install spring springlobby
Anyhow all went well and the Lobby and Spring installed and then updated fine
Then for installing Spring 1944
I added the repo the same way with this
Then Search Ubuntu Software Center for Spring1944 just typing spring won't find it
Others do it this way:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:spring/ppa sudo add-apt-repository ppa:s44/stable sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spring1944
Games like Zero-K
Simply put into the ./spr

LXer: KDE Games Does anybody play them?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2014
Published at LXer:
When I installed openSUSE it came with a number of games pre-installed including Reversi, Patience, Sudoku, Mahjongg and Mines. This article takes a look at the games and asks the question "Who is playing them?" Do you play them? If nobody plays them why are they there?
[SOLVED] Fedora 14 + XBMC minimal install (no desktop enviroment : gnome/kde/xcfe and etc.)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 27, 2010
Hi guys and girls!
first of all merry Christmas! and happy coming new year!
I have the following question:
I have fedora x64 minimal install (done netinstall + minimal option when selecting packages)
What i want to do now is to install XBMC (if anyone has working boxee for fedora14 that would be awesome) without installing Gnome or any other desktop manager.
i've seen some guides for ubuntu but there is not much info that is related to fedora in this case, i think
i have atom+nvidia motherboard and the kmod-nvidia is installed.
now i need to somehow make it to start nvidia drivers start X (i would assume) and start xbmc.
If anyone could give an idea or a full blown guide it would be PERFECT. unfortunately there is not alot of info when it comes to multimedia and fedora, mostly all is done on ubuntu (including boxee, doughhhh)
Creating a secure installation for ebanking, online shopping etc
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 28, 2011
I'm thinking about creating a 'secure' Linux install on an USB stick that I would boot into any time I want to connect to my ebanking accounts/ online shopping websites that store my credit card details or whenever I want to do anything sensitive away from my home PC.
- Live system with a boot on the USB stick with encrypted home folder and no swap partition
- Encrypt a small partition of the USB stick with Truecrypt to securely store passwords (in keepass), PGP keys etc
- Encrypt the entire system partition with Truecrypt with boot password authentication
- Use Firefox for the web browsing with several extentions (https everywhere, noscript, adblock).
I'm currently using Kubuntu as my main OS and I really like it. The problem I can see with installing Kubuntu on on the USB stick is that it contains too many packages and apps that I do not need for my needs and consequently I think it doesn't make much sense from the security point of view.
Do stable version Debian can using the KDE 3.2, Gnome 2.6, Apache 2.x etc?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 20, 2004
I want to ask some questions are Debian, I have the Woody 7CD install Disc then my friend give me, I know it is base on kernal 2.2, and all old KDE and Gnome Desktop.
I want to make Debian be my Server and Desktop PC, and will self-learning it later to pass the LPI Level 1 Exam, it is why I choose Debian, LPI I want to choose the DKPG way to exam not the RPM, afraid the depend on problems in RPM will let me hard to pass the LPI 101 exam.
I also try using those 7 CD to install Debian on my 6 year old IBM Aptiva PC, but failed to install the X-Windows, KDE, Gnome etc, but I can install the base system on this PC just fine.
Now, on the next week end, I will try to using this CD to install again on a newer PC, I want to ask, Woody Debian, after install the base system, how to not using the other CD to install the X-Windows and Gnome 2.6, KDE 3.2? Can anyone give me the step by step example using apt-get install from internet and ftp, how to add other list to the /etc/ap

Games on Wine (Steam, WoW, etc)

Hi guys and gals,
My games either run incredibly slow or freeze my system. I'll start HL2 games, they will run the intro decently (some strange misplacement until it finishes loading), but after that it's either laggy or it completely freezes. It either does that repeated sound over and over, or I can hear my programs in the background but can't do anything to get my desktop back (I have System Monitor F12 keybound) - then computer reboots. It's also worth noting that when I start the game, my other monitor (dual) turns off then back on for a couple seconds - not sure why.. driver requirement to prevent something maybe - happens when I play a video too.
Specs: Ubuntu 10.10 x64, XFX 5850 Radeon HD, Core i7, Corsair 6GB triple channel, WD Black, OCZ 750w gold
