In Rox file manager
Left click on an iso file and a window should open showing the contents of the iso.

Rox can be setup for single left click or double left click, to cause action, by mouse left button clicking.
Default is usually single click.

In Rox, left clicking on an executable file, should make it execute.
If it does nothing, probably something is wrong.
Running the executable in a terminal, will give info about why it is not running.

For games, usually you have to do things the way the game wants them to be done.
Should be a readme or help file, for the game, to give more detailed info on options, to run it.

@ fabrice_035

yes exactly, the point is that some games or apps ( in windows) requires that the the cd to be in the drive, even if I tried to install it alone, they still require that for some reason.

@bigpup

Thanks, I like the double click method more I think ( maybe because I just used to t) I also donot like that the windwos resize itself automatically even if I adjust it manually. for instance make it full, then clicking a folder that contains only one folder then the window readjust itself on a way that it only shows that file or sub-folder. I could not also find a way to search for a file inside a folder fast. for instance, opening a folder that contains tens of files and I am searching for a file that begins with SE , usually (in windows or thunder file) I would press S and it takes me to the files that begins with S. that would be nice but unfortunately does not happen in Rox ( or maybe in a way that i am not aware of).

The biggest reason games require the CD to run.
If they come on a CD, you had to buy it.
Requiring the CD, proves you own the game.

I play games I got from Steam.
They require a connection to Steam, to prove you own the game, to play it.


Rox file manager is a basic file manager.
Has some features, but not everything possible.

You probably need to install another file manager to use.
There are several of them for Linux.
There are some listed in this section of the forum.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=51&ppage=30&sort=lastpost&order=DESC

Right click in an open area of a Rox window.
Select options.
There are settings for how windows open.
But Rox is a single window file manager.
So, usually you need to open two Rox windows to move stuff around. Each one showing a different location.
Drag and drop from one window to the other window.
