View Full Version : [ubuntu] Solitaire not working :-(

July 9th, 2012, 04:48 AM

Am new to ubuntu.. more like an immigrant from windows. So i may sound really really dumb

The thing is i just did a few things after searching different forums, stuff like installing the GTK theme advanced settings, screensaver, the hibernate button n stuff.

And after i did all those, the solitaire games (both of them in ma PC) have stopped working. tried uninstalling and reinstalling but when i do that the solitaire icon in the launcher stays "waiting to install".. pls help.. thats the oly game ma mom plays and she really misses it. all other games are fine by the way!!!

Are you using the Linux native solitare or solitare via Wine? (which allows windows programs to be run on Linux) :|
