Installing games ? [Solved]

Post by jolato » Mon Jul 23, 2012 12:24

I am running Sabayon 9 KDE 64b. I was installing some games using rigo which is a front end to entropy if am correct (?). The games are installed somewhere in /share/games (not sure). Permissions on the folder for root - games are quite strict (I think rwxr--r--). So I set the games folder to 755.

The games are not added to the KDE menu automatically. I couldn't find them there. So I added them myself on the desktop manually using right mouse - add shortcut (or something equivalent). The games are like quake, sauerbrauten, openarena, etc.

My question: is there some way to have installed games automatically added to the KDE Menu ?

set your user to game group

Code: Select all

# gpasswd -a <your_user> games
