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……..,

see the complete list of games.

To install Djl download the tar file from this link :

http://en.djl-linux.org/?q=node/19

then download the latest version djl-1.2.14.tar.gz

Now before to install the game be sure that these dependencies are installed :

python

python-qt4

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 :

cd   djl

And launch the installation using this command :

sh djl.sh

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.

Enjoy and if you like it, don`t forget to digg it :)
