Help Please

Postby ckfisher » Tue Dec 05, 2006 10:39 pm

Hi people,
I am for the most part a Windows user mainly because i game alot any way i'm sick of formating my fathers PC so i have decided that i would convert him to Linux!, But the catch is i need to find a Crib game that i can install for him. I come across KardsGT and attempted to install it but to no avail. Basicly i need another Crib game or to figure out how to install this one. If you can help PLEASE do. Here is the Link to the game i installed. I followed instructions to the "T" Transforming it from rpm to DEb file but keep getting the same thing all seemd good untill i try to find it....it's not in my game folder and when i type kardsgt i get a error mssg about libpng.so.3. I tried to find this file and install it and i though i did but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You
Kyle

Hi Kyle,

What's "Crib" exactly ? Can you post the link you were talking about?

Check out this page and see if you like these games: http://www.gnome.org/projects/gnome-games/

If you do, and you want to have them installed, all you have to do is open a terminal and type "sudo apt-get install gnome-games".

Hope it helps,
Clem.

Need Help Finding Crib game for Mint!

Postby nick » Wed Dec 06, 2006 8:18 am

Hi
I had to install G++ and QT3 libraries, including qtassitant and then, make, sudo make install.
works O.K. I have KDE desktop. Many thanks have been looking for cribbage fo Linux fo some time :)
Does not add to menu, just type kardsgt, or create link on desktop.
Have you tried running your original cribbage game under Wine? If you give me a link to URL I will have a go.

Regards - Nick

You need libpng3:

sudo apt-get install libpng3

You know you can simply double click on the deb in nautilus... and it'll open a gui for the installer. I think it'll even check dependencies for you.

Well I never ran that game... I suppose you can right click somewhere, or use the menu editor.. or create a file in /usr/share/applications.

I'm not quite sure.

Hi
Sorry, I never made myself clear, I compiled the program from source , never mind you have it working.
To make link, right click on desktop, Create New-Link to Application, Click on Application tab,
under command,put kardsgt, under description, "cribbage" or whatever, click general tab, put in cribbage or whatever you want, If you then click on the "blank icon" before closing, you will be given a choice of icons.
Enjoy - Nick
