Djl is an open-source (GPL licensed) game manager written in Python 2.5 for the GNU/Linux Operating Systems. It is inspired by Valve’s Steam software for Windows.
Djl makes it possible (via a repository) to download, install and remove a reasonable number of games placed into a distrobution independent subdirectory (but without dealing with any dependencies). It can also execute ,desktop shortcuts located in another directory.
Actually Djl have more that 105 game in his repository, games like Alien Arena, Blood Frontier……..,
To install Djl download the tar file from this link :
then download the latest version djl-1.2.14.tar.gz
Now before to install the game be sure that these dependencies are installed :
If the dependencies are not installed then use :
For fedora/redhat/centos, under root :
yum install python python-qt4
For Ubuntu :
sudo apt-get install python python-qt4
Now after the dependecies are installed we will extract the downloaded file djl-1.2.14.tar.gz
tar -zxvf djl-1.2.14.tar.gz
Go to the folder where you extracted the tar file :
And launch the installation using this command :
Please indicate the install directory and location of your browser
the script will contact the Linux games servers and download some games for you , plus their
plugins and chat between gamers.
Now once the games are installed, they can be launched from main window, which not only
contains games that are installed from the repository, but also shortcuts as .desktop files.
