To install pet files you just download them and click them in Rox.

They will install.

To install games, you can do it from the package installer. or using pet files.

What games you want to install?

From what I see on that thread, it does not create a menu entry.

If you installed it you will need to execute from a terminal

1. Open a terminal
2. Execute the following command
Code:
nInvaders


Note: The command is case sensitive, use the lower and upper case exactly as shown.

Did you try resizing the terminal before starting the game?

I have some games, they came in a package of 3 or 4. They installed, but didn't end up in the menu. So I just click on them in ROX. I suppose I could just drag the icon from ROX to the desktop and they would run from that. Haven't tried it, tho.

Thats the way Sky king. You can aslso set an icon for them:
Right click the executable on the desktop> choose "set Icon" and drag the appropriate icon to the "set icon" box.
