Hi,
are there poker clients that have Linux versions? I often playing Full Tilt Poker in Windows, but through Wine the graphics are all glitchy. What do you guys use to play online poker in Ubuntu?

(I play texas holdem and omaha hi)

That looks promising, although installing it through the terminal installed version 0.6.3. Once you run it, you're told you should upgrade to 0.7. Checking their website http://www.pokerth.net, there isn't any deb file to make it install nice and easy. I'll have to lookup how to install a bin file.

Thanks for the recommendation, gonna try it right now. :)

From their download page:



PokerTH-0.7 is available from the Ubuntu repositories or (for older Ubuntu releases) from the Debian/Ubuntu Games Team PPA (https://launchpad.net/~pkg-games/+archive/ppa) via `apt-get install pokerth` (thanks to Zhenech)

apt-get install pokerth gets 0.6.3 not 0.7

Pokerth is ok, but it doesn't have Omaha. Gonna try using Cedega or something to get Full Tilt Poker working right.

Have you added PPA to your list of repositories?
