I like this simple game and want to get it on my MintKDE install but it is not available in Software Manager.  Here is the website for it but I don't know what to download or how to install it, can someone help.  There is a zip and a tar.bz

http://criticalmass.sourceforge.net/

 

Thanks pcpunk

Try the terminal:

al@my_desktop_pc:~$ criticalmass
The program 'criticalmass' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install criticalmass

It means that if you type

sudo apt-get install criticalmass

into terminal the game will be installed.

Really! even though it is not available in the Mint/Ubuntu repositories.  Sorry don't understand all this yet.

 

I downloaded the tar.bz and opened it in my downloads file, should/can I leave it there for now or delete it before running this command?  I was reading the info on installing it, but it was way over my head.

Thanks! I looked all over for it with "critical mass".  Separating the words was the problem! oh-boy
