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.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
