    master inuyasha,

    as for bb, it is right there on debian, the usual depositories.

    as for -=- galaga ksokoban katomic kasteroids -=- try the meta-package "kde-games" in the same debian repositories.

    as for -=- frozen-bubble chromium kteatime xeyes enigma -=- try a apt-cache search [something] to locate what you are looking for.

    works for me

    ok, here is the step-by-step...

    You need to be root, and be running a "root konsole", you also can not install any packages unless you arent running off the LiveCD -=- i.e. hard drive installed, Poor Man's install, etc...

    Fire up a "konsole" or a root konsole...

    If you fire up a "user" konsole, you will get a prompt, with your user name in it, if its a "root" konsole, then "root" will be in the prompt...

    A user konsole can be made "into" a root konsole by using "su", and providing the SuperUser or root, password... like so:
    Code:
    cuddles@neo:~$
    cuddles@neo:~$
    cuddles@neo:~$ su
    Password:
    root@neo:/home/cuddles#
    The above example is a "user" konsole, changed to root... to exit out of being root, type "exit"

    now for some rudimentary apt commands...

    apt-cache search:
    Code:
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# apt-cache search frozen
    fb-music-high - High quality, large music files for Frozen-Bubble
    fb-music-low - Lower quality, small music files for Frozen-Bubble
    frozen-bubble - Pop out the bubbles !
    frozen-bubble-data - Data files for Frozen-Bubble
    junior-puzzle - Debian Jr. Puzzles
    sysv-freeze - freeze/ unfreeze your rc-configuration
    root@neo:/home/cuddles#
    You should always run a "apt-get update" before searching, and installing, that way "current" information is given...

    to install a package, use the following command: (lets say frozen-bubble from the example above)
    Code:
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# apt-get install frozen-bubble
    Chances are, though, you will need to install more than just the game, as you can see from the "search" example, it has a -data file, and unless "apt" decides for you, you will need to choose which version of music you want, low or high... You can provide more than one package on the install command. Lets say you want low music, and you want to include the -data file, which apt will probably add for you if you dont, though... here is the complete process:

    Code:
    cuddles@neo:~$ su
    Password:
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# 
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# apt-get update
    ... lots of database retrieval stuff removed here ...
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# 
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# apt-get install frozen-bubble frozen-bubble-data fb-music-low 
    ... apt will display what it is installing, ask for permission, and then install, when its done, you should get the following ...
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# 
    ... now to leave being root, and return to a regular user ...
    root@neo:/home/cuddles#
    root@neo:/home/cuddles# exit
    exit
    cuddles@neo:~$
    Hope this helps,
    Ms. Cuddles
