Linux: Install a million games in one click

Filed under
Software
Gaming

Today, we will talk about two extremely useful applications that allow to you search for hundreds of games that run on Linux, sorted by category, popularity, license, or price, read game synopses, check out the screenshots, and then, should you decide that you like some of them, install them with a single mouse click.

djl

djl is an open-source game manager for Linux, written in Python and inspired by Steam Valve for Windows.

Get djl

The first thing you will have to do is download the installer script from the website. It's contained in a tar.gz archive, so you will have to extract it first. The djl.sh contained inside the archive needs to be executable in order to run, so you may have to make it that way.

GameStore

GameStore is a game management utility, specifically for openSUSE, following the similar concept of Steam Valve for Windows. GameStore works against the Games openSUSE repository, downloading game information and screenshots, allowing you to browse the different categories, read about the games, get first impressions, and install them with one mouse click.

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
