I don't have linux running at the moment but I think the gz archive is an executable binary. Shocked Try renaming to gplanarity, changing permissions, and executing from the command line.

Not sure if it is the latest, but here you go:

Edit: Isn't .gz a compression format?

Yes indeed I've tried this and gz format is all I can find of it. Petget claims to install it when clicked on but apparently doesn't.. Extracted it but could not find an executable file, couldn't start from command line either. I'll keep working on this one, good learning experience Smile

Sorry, that's what I get for not paying more attention to things. Try this one, it brought up a download dialog for me:

I was able to extract the gz archive with gzip -d gPlananrity.gz and execute the file but it just brought up a blank window. Sad

Actually this 'neat' game made me stay up far too late last night...I reckon it should be in the standard puppy collection.....I am currently avoiding running it again Very Happy

Hi, note that the latest version of gPlanarity includes internationalization support, It would be nice to have an updated package on ibiblio.
