Question:
I’m new to Linux and recently I have installed Ubuntu Linux. I’m wondering how would I install new software like games and etc. I’m really fan of a mastermind game and wish to have it also on my Ubuntu linux. Is there anything like mastermind game for Ubuntu linux?

Answer:

Ubuntu linux comes with thousands of software package which are waiting to be installed by the end user. Just a portion of those packages is installed on your system by default. You as end user can make a decision which packages would be best to be installed on your system to fit your needs. To search all available packages for a mastermind game from command line execute a following command:

$ apt-cache search mastermind game
ace-of-penguins - graphical solitaire-games with penguin-look
colorcode - advanced clone of the MasterMind code-breaking game
gnome-mastermind - Mastermind (TM) clone for GNOME Desktop
gtkboard - many board games in one program
sgt-puzzles - Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection - 1-player puzzle games

The above is list of packages which contain keywords “mastermind game”. The package name is at the beginning of each output line. To install a package “gnome-mastermind” execute a following command:


$ sudo apt-get install gnome-mastermind

Enter your password and wait until installation completes. To start the game navigate to your GNOME menu or execute command:


$ gnome-mastermind
