Sorry but I don't have a solution to you problem at hand but,

Lets try to make the threads a little more precise in the exact problem. It helps the members here out when browsing thru the forums. Also lets try to keep words that might be taken offensively to others out of the posts.

OK, open a terminal and try under KDE/Gnome/whatever you use, and try running the programs/games from the command line. If you're given any errors, then you know there's a problem...and you know where to come to fix it!

Trick's right, though. Title's that are more informative, such as 'Why won't these programs run under Linux PPC?' are infinitly more helpful, and although you may find certain words acceptable, not everyone does - be considerate and not use potentially offensive words in your posts.
