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.

TuxTyping je vzdělávací hra s výukou psaní na stroji a hvězdou Tux, linuxovým tučňákem. Hráč se snaží provést Tuxe tak, aby snědl ryby, které padají shora z obrazovky. Každá ryba na sobě má určité písmeno. Jakmile hráč toto písmeno stiskne, Tux se přemístí tak šikovně, aby snědl onu rybu. Hra se snaží děti naučit psát na klávesnici. Mimo to, obsahuje i velmi obtížné úrovně, které zvládnou jen ti nejpokročilejší písaři.
