Gaming on Ubuntu Linux

Filed under
Gaming

After my last few articles on how to connect Ubuntu Linux to network shares and a network printer, I want to have a look at some of the more fun aspects of Ubuntu Linux. I thought this was appropriate at the moment, so...let the games begin!

I have been writing these articles in the spirit of helping and showing people who may been looking to move from Windows to Linux, that it is not all daunting and difficult to get things done in Linux.

Whilst I have had successfully "made the move" to Linux, I have to confess that I don't know much about gaming. My laptop doesn't have a dedicated graphics card and my PC is pretty low specced too with an onboard grahics card. In fact none of the hardware that I have, or have had for the last few years, has been capable of playing anything even moderately recent. So I haven't really got into gaming.

Saying that, now that I have access to a vast array of free to install Linux games, I have had a bit of a play around! This article is no longer what I know off the top of my head, actual research has gone into it!
