Linux Cheat Sheet
Have a look at our Linux Cheat Sheet for quick one-liners, commands and tips.
Get UbuTricks, a graphical program which allows you to install the latest versions of several applications in Ubuntu.

These are included in the KDE Games package and they can be installed separately by name in any major distribution out there. The official KDE games include mostly board, card or arcade games. I will overview some of the “best” that come in KDE but, of course, your mileage may vary, since one can like a certain kind of board game, while another may like card games more.


KMahjongg
KMahjongg is the popular Mahjongg variant on KDE. KMahjongg has six tiles themes, hints, and you can save and reload games. The nice feature is that it comes with over 30 different board layouts configurable in the options dialogue.

KSquares
This is a simple game which can be played on a piece of paper too. The basic idea is to make more squares than your adversary by placing one square side at a time. A lot depends on the size of the board and the player who starts.
