To install the binaries tar, do this as user root (other platforms are similar):

cd /usr/bin/X11
tar xvfz /tmp/ace-1.2.linux.tar.gz
tar cf - libcards.so* | (cd /usr/local/lib ; tar xf -)
rm libcards.so*

You will need to run ldconfig to notice the new shared libraries.

Then you can open a new shell window and type the name of the program you want at the command line to run it.

If you're using the standard fvwm, you'll also want to install this file as /etc/X11/wmconfig/ace to get these in your pop-up menus (Programs -> Games -> Cards ->).


All Ace programs use the PNG library and ZLib. Your system may have them installed, otherwise you'll need to download and install them.

You must use GNU make and gcc to build The Ace of Penguins.

Unpack the distribution into an empty directory and type:

make install

To cross compile, do something like this:

./configure --with-cross=mipsel-linu

The example above is for the Agenda, which uses mipsel-linux-gcc and friends to build. After building, look for libs in lib/.libs/*.so and programs in games/.lib/* (where libtool puts them). Use strip to reduce their size.
