Memoirs of a QWERTY Keyboard

OpenSuSE 10.2


This distro is very very cool, apart from getting rid of the YaST slowdown effect in 10.1 this one really impressed me with its out of the box flash, java and opera support. And all I needed for MP3s to play was a libxine1 package from Packman. Adding libdvdcss2 and w32codecs-all solved the rest of the codecs issues (DVD and Windows audio etc). Its (SuSE’s) bluetooth thing in KDE is the best and easiest I’ve seen, I just connected my Nokia 6681 and it showed me a list of services I wished to use, like file transfer etc… Apart from all this, the new menu’s uber cool and worth a try for all KDE haters out there :P (I was one too)
Anyway for Linux gamers, try these:

  • X-Moto – Supercool bike stunt game.
  • SuperTux – Penguins and ice blocks instead of Mario and bricks.
  • GL-117 – Easiest air combat game I’ve yet played, neat in its interface too.
  • Super TuxKart – Kart racing with animals on them. :?
  • Briquolo – Breakout clone, nice one at that.
