    Kids Software

    Hi,

    I am knew to Edubuntu, could anyone point me in the right direction for some applications for children.

    I know there are loads of applications out there I just don't know where to find them or what they do.

    Mainly younger children, age range 4-6.

    Thanks you alot.

    A lot of the applications are in Applications->Education . However, for younger kids there is a cool app called gcompris. You can find it in Applications->Games->Educational suite gcompris .

    If that's not enough or what you're looking for the edubuntu-users mailing list (more info on http://lists.ubuntu.com) should have more info.

    Hope this helps,

    I have set several boxes for a kindergarten that were running xubuntu plus some of the games in edubuntu
    the most popular were :
    childsplay
    tuxpaint
    gcompris
    (actually i think one or two of them didn't come with edubuntu , i added them later...can't remember)
    since these computers run really low hardware ,xubuntu was too slow and i finally found a great version of puppy linux which is supper fast and contains some more games (sadly no childsplay though)
    check it out here
