The Ace of Penguins is a set of Unix/X solitaire games based on the ones available for Windows(tm) but with a number of enhancements that my wife says make my versions better.
The latest version includes clones of freecell, golf, mastermind, merlin, minesweeper, pegged, solitaire, taipei (with editor!), and thornq (by Martin Thornquist).
To install the binaries tar, do this as user root (other platforms are similar):
tar xvfz /tmp/ace-1.2.linux.tar.gz
tar cf - libcards.so* | (cd /usr/local/lib ; tar xf -)
You will need to run ldconfig to notice the new shared libraries.
Then you can open a new shell window and type the name of the program you want at the command line to run it.
