GCompris is a high quality educational software suite, including a large number of activities for children aged 2 to 10. Some of the activities are game orientated, but nonetheless still educational.

This is a transitional package that depends on the new series of GCompris releases (rewritten using Qt). It can be safely removed once gcompris-qt is installed.

PacVim is a game that teaches you vim commands. You must move pacman (the green cursor) to highlight each word on the gameboard while avoiding the ghosts (in red).

Vim is a great tool to write and edit code, but many people, including me, struggled with the steep learning curve. I did not find a fun, free way to learn about the vim commands in-depth, and thus, PacVim was born. Inspired by the classic, PacMan, PacVim is a game that'll give anyone plenty of practice with the vim commands while being a ton of fun to play.

Randtype is a small utility to output characters or lines at random intervals. There are a few command line options to refine the output. With it you can output files to the screen, and if you configured it well, it will look like someone is actually typing - with optional typos even.

TuxTyping은 리눅스 펭귄인 턱스가 나오는 교육적인 타이핑 자습서 게임입니다. 플레이어는 화면 상단에서 떨어지는 물고기를 먹을 수 있도록 턱스를 안내합니다. 각각의 물고기는에는 글자가 써져 있습니다. 플레이어가 해당하는 키를 누르면, 턱스는 물고기를 먹기위해 자리를 이동합니다. 숙련된 타이피스트도 어려워 할 만한 더욱 어려운 레벨이 있지만, 그럼에도 이 게임은 타이프를 배우는 아이들을 대상으로 합니다.

Typespeed는 단어가 스크린을 가로질러 날아다니는 게임입니다. 사용자가 할 일 은 단어가 화면을 가로지르기 전에 올바로 타이핑해서 단어를 없애는 것 입니다. 너무 많은 단어를 놓치면 게임은 끝납니다.

A typing practice game for X similar to typespeed and tuxtype. Words chosen from the system's wordlist fall from the top of the screen and must be typed correctly to score. In a challenge stage, random sequences of characters appear instead of words. Head-to-head networked play is possible with xletters-duel.
