Note/Warning: If you want the BSOD and/or the Web Collage screensaver be warned with the BSOD I have on one occasion accidentally shut down my computer and caused filesystem damage and destroyed my hard drive. With the Web Collage you may end up getting porn downloaded to your computer so if it is a public computer or you don't want your parents, family, or young children seeing porn then don't install Web Collage. Because of these 2 reasons I have left them out of the graphics setup list above. Install them at your own risk.
sudo apt-get install gnome-games gnome-games-common gnome-games-extra-data gir1.2-gnomegamessupport-1.0 gnome-cards-data openyahtzee libevas1 libevas1-engine-fb libevas1-engines-core libevas-engines-x libgl-mesa-dri-experimental libogre-1.7.3 ogre-tools python-evas python-glitch python-opengl python-gtkglext1 python-pyglew python-soya xscreensaver-data-extra libopengl-xscreensaver-perl rss-glx unicode-screensaver xscreensaver-gl xscreensaver-gl-extra
Also if you do not like the games that come packaged with Lubuntu and would like to remove them completely after setting up gnome-games above then enter this command into the terminal:
and also install the latest driver form amd.com or nvidia.com
sudo apt-get purge ace-of-penguins
AMD Driver Link for Radeon HD Series Cards 64-bit:
Nvidia Driver Link for GeForce Linux 64-bit latest drivers:
before you install AMD driver install this:
then in Accessories>LXTermial type:
sudo apt-get install libqtgui4
then if you have an AMD Video card install this (but you may want to look at this page on how to install the proprietary driver first but if you have oneric just change Ubuntu\maverick to Ubuntu\oneric.https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI
cd ~/Downloads && sudo chmod -x 'the-name-of-the-driver-installer-here'.run && sudo sh 'the-name-of-the-driver-installer-here'.run
and then everything should work after a good reboot.
I hope that you all enjoy using *ubuntu as much as I do.
