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 vzdelávacia hra s výukou písania na stroji s linuxovým tučniakom Tux. Hráč sa snaží viesť Tuxa tak, aby zjedol ryby, ktoré padajú z hornej časti obrazovky. Každá ryba má na sebe nejaké písmeno. Akonáhle hráč toto písmeno stlačí, Tux sa premiestni tak, aby túto rybu zjedol. Cieľom hry je naučiť deti písať na klávesnici, ale obsahuje aj náročné úrovne, ktoré zvládnu len tí najpokročilejší pisári.
