Does anyone know how to add that weird but mesmerizing music to Pysol Fan Club edition?

From what I read, you download the music files and paste them into the folder:
/home/<username>/.pysolfc/music

Folders with a . (period) in front are hidden, so you have to select the option in your file manager to show hidden files.

As to where to get the music files, try this. I don't know if this is the music you expect. Download, extract the files from the rpm (clicking on it should offer this option), then paste them into the directory mentioned above.
http://ftp.altlinux.org/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/Sisyphus/noarch/SRPMS.classic/PySolFC-music-4.40-alt2_15.src.rpm

All untested. I don't use pysol.

I clicked on this link, opened in Archive Manager, navigated to the music files, double clicked them, and they play just fine.

Hi "cecilieaux",

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Although I already had solitaire games, I went into the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)", searched for "pysol", installed that, and started Klondike solitaire but there was only basic sounds.

FYI: Of course, you can play any music from any music application while playing PySol or any games in your Linux Mint system.

I then downloaded the "rpm" file from the link from "MintBean" into my "/Downloads" folder, right clicked it Extracted Here, it created a "PySolFC-music-4.40-alt2_15.src" folder, went into that, right clicked another archive file "pysol-music-4.40.tar.gz" and Extracted that which created "pysol-music-4.40" folder with a "Data" folder, went into that, and there was the "Music" folder, went into that, where there were 3 music files:

Astral_Dreams.it
Past_and_Future.it
Subsequential.mod

I copied these into the hidden PySol Fan Club's configuration folder's music folder:
/home/user69/.pysolfc/music/

Then restarted PySol Fan Club edition, started Klondike Solitaire, and there was the "weird but mesmerizing music". I do not see how to change which music is selected.

I also converted these music files into ".mp3" so they can be played from any music application.

@ cecilieaux, I didn't know there was music for Pysol until you started this thread. Thank you for that!
