    Default PySol

    Resently I tried to install Pysol which is a collection of solitaire games. I installed it through YaST and it seemed to download and install correctly but when I click on the PySol icon nothing happens. So if anyone could help me with this issue it would be greatly appreciated. -Clinton

    Clinton,

    first step, check the command in the .desktop file and run it manually from a console. That should show some errors.

    i would like to kindly recommend uninstallation of pysol & then installation of pysolFC. (fan club edition). it is newer & has many more games.

    Question Re: PySol

    installing PysoFC is not an option.
    it only allows playing the startup "Klondike". if you choose any other game it crashes. does this in all distros i have tried.
    i have tried many of the solutions found on the net but none have yet to work.
    after all this time there should be a fix.

    PySol worked great for me in ver 10.3 But will not run in ver. 11.1. When I attempt to start it all I get is the bouncing cursor. And that just goes away after a bit. I tried it from the command line and got the following feedback -

    gary@linux-unxh:~> pysol

    import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
    ImportError: libtk8.5.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I would appreciate any suggestions on how to solve this problem. I am a newbie to Linux - trying to climb the learning curve.

    Thanks - Gary
