• Tuxtype Tuxmath


    How do i set up Tuxtype/math to show up in windowed version . I can not file any config files like Tuxpaint and no options in settings .
    So far i found this :

    Currently, tuxmath runs either in fullscreen mode (preferred) or in a 640x480 window. 640x480 is pretty small these days for a game. For this task, allow the user to specify a different size when launching tuxmath from the command line as an extra arg following “-w” or “–windowed”, e.g.:

    tuxmath --windowed 1024x768

    Look in src/setup.c around lines 522-30 and 709-740 for current code that has bearing on this task. You will need to change the behavior of win_res_x and win_res_y, which are currently constants.

    Ideally, have the program remember the window size when it is run again.
    However it does not work on Tuxtype .

  • It should be tuxtype --window instead.

    $ tuxtype --help
    
    Usage:
     tuxtype [OPTION]...
    
    Options:
    
    	-h, --help, -help
    		Prints this help message
    
    	-f, --fullscreen
    		Selects fullscreen display (default)
    
    	-w, --window
    		Selects windowed display (not fullscreen)
    
    	-s, --sound
    		Allow in-game sounds (default)
    
    	-ns, --nosound
    		Disables in-game sounds
    
    	-t {THEME}, --theme {THEME}
    		Use theme named {THEME}, if it exists
    
    	-sp, --speed
    		Speed up gameplay (for use on slower
    		machines)
    
    	-d, --debug
    		Enable debug mode (output)
    
    
    	-v, --version
    		Display version number and exit

    tuxtype --window
    Thank you . It works on Tux type but no luck with Tux math , Also it is in very low resolution 640x480 .
    I will contact developers for a fix or workaround .

  • Just installed Gcompris. Trying to follow their own instructions for admin panel and this comes up :
    [email protected] ~]$ gcompris-qt --a
    qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
    Unable to load translation for locale “en_CA” , use en_US by default
    Unknown option ‘a’.
    [[email protected] ~]$

    Or with just gcompris :
    [[email protected] ~]$ gcompris --a
    bash: gcompris: command not found
    [[email protected] ~]$
    So had to add qt , still no control panel to set up age appropriate options .
    Oh well will let her try see how she likes it .
    RANT ahead , WARNING !!! ;)
    Why are Linux games missing such basic functionallity , like easy access to config panel , or display setting ?
    Parent dont have time to figure out config files or search internet .
    It is no wonder those games are not popular . Why would anyone donate to half done game ?
    Grrrrrrr !;)

    This article contains some good games for Linux, although the author’s English is not the best:smile:. A found a few interesting ones there, such as Childsplay and Omnitux.

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • Here is another good write up :

    Will try these as they are preconfigured and will try to use old Toshiba laptop without battery as her own little set up :).

  • Nice list! I especially like the sound of Edubuntu. But as it said, this may not be the best choice for younger kids (ages 3-5).
