Kids programs/learning games etc...
« on: December 29, 2009, 08:34:34 am »

I guess either I don't know where to look or they're not there.  I'm looking for kids learning games like say tux math and that type of stuff.  Are they available directly somewhere for easy install or is there a way to get them installed?  Thanks in advance.

TuxType is in the repo I think. (available through Gslapt) I think there are some other educational games and stuff like that. If you go to sourceforge.net and search for "tux" (no quotes) you will get some things like Tux of Math Command, Tux Math Scrabble, Tux Learn Notes, Tux Brain... If you like some of those (or others completely different from those) you could put in a request for it in the New Package Requests board.

OK Thanks.  For right now Tux of math command I think is the one I"m wanting.  I'll file a request and hope it will run ok on these two older machines I have vector on.  Thanks.
