How to install KDE games in Vectorlinux 5.8?
« on: November 01, 2007, 03:28:49 am »

Hi everyone! I have a problem with installing kde games in VL. I'm using the gold edition, and it says that there are missing some dependencies...
Could someone help me? Thanks in advance!

I am interested in the Mahjong game, so if you know how to install just this game, it would be perfect. Thanks!

I dion't know the answer to your question, but here's a version of Mahjongg I have tried and which works well (if you're OK with compiling software from source);

I've just downloaded, compiled and executed it without any problems (as usual in VL :)

Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=/usr
su
(insert root password)
make install

I too have xmahjongg on my little laptop.  It is a great alternative to kmahjongg.  Especially with all the different tilesets available.  Type "xmahjongg --list" at the command line (without the quotes) to get a list of tilesets packaged with xmahjongg.  Type "xmahjongg --tileset [name]" at the command line to load the selected tileset. 

There are some other games out there that are the same as or similar to kdegames as well.  But I like kmahjongg and kshisen in addition to a couple of puzzle games that will run with the same deps. 

So I upgraded qt to keep gslapt from complaining.  I then downloaded and installed kdegames via glsapt which satisfied dependencies; primarily kdelibs (kdebase is not necessarey).  I have no issues at all running this package on VL 5.8 Gold Standard.   ;D
