    Exclamation How to download a spider solitaire game, that, if we can, be similar to Windows 7 ver

    My grandmother loved the Windows 7 version of Spider Solitaire, and she was so upset when she had to Windows 10. So, after she has been complaining about her Windows 10 computer being slow, I wanted to move her to Ubuntu Bungie (she always said she liked the way Mac looks) and she if it was possible to get one of her old friends back. Would like to stay far from PPA’s.

    You can install AisleRiot from the repos. It has a version of Spider, but I don't know if the look would be the same.

    I've never used Windows 7 so I don't know what solitaire card games it had, but on Ubuntu there's aisleriot solitaire, which is a collection of over 80 solitaire card games. It may include your grandmother's favourite. The package is called aisleriot (at least on Ubuntu 19.10, but it has been like that for ages). It might be installed by default.
