Potatoman and PPracer

Postby fossiili on Thu Dec 27, 2007 2:59 am

I have just installed Linux Mint 4 Gnome to the computer of my daughter and her children. The games they like most are Potatoman and PPracer. I installed Gnome Games which I found by using "Software Portal" http://www.linuxmint.com/software/?sec= ... &release=2

The games I found do not include the two favourites. Neither any other good game for children. What is the recommend method to install for ex. Kdegames to my Gnome Mint?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

well you could install them using synaptic (package manager) which is in your mintmenu, once open Just search for the name of the game and then tick the box to install.

You might want to know that planetpenguinracer is now under redevelopment by extremetuxracer. and you can download the game directly from there website http://www.extremetuxracer.com/?download

Extreme Tux Racer is GREAT. I have installed it in two computers :D

Thank you!

But how to find Potatoman?

In Synaptic, search for KTuberling. It's essentially the same as Potatoman.

Yes, certainly, because according to my "The Advanced Learner's Dictionary of Current English" from the year 1963: "tuber enlarged part of an underground stem from which new plants will grow (e.g. a potato or Jerusalem artichoke)". Why did I not realize the name myself :oops:

Thank you!
