  1. Install the repository in one of the following ways:

    1. Install the playdeb package.

    2. Or configure the repository manually:

      Go to System-Administration-Software Sources, Third-Party Software tab, Add:

      deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu natty-getdeb games

      Add the repository GPG key, open a terminal window and type:

      wget -q -O- http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
  2. Click the "Install this now" button below the screenshot of the desired game.

    sudo apt-get update
  5. If you want to uninstall the PlayDeb repository run this command:

    sudo apt-get remove playdeb
  6. If you get a blank page when installing you need to configure apturl in your browser.

Qjoypad is a simple Linux/QT program that let's you emulate keystrokes and the mouse with a joystick or gamepad. This is useful for gaming when you want to configure the controller your own way rather than how the programmers set it up. It is also very useful if you have a second display such as a television and you want to fast forward or rewind through videos. You can use a gamepad as a remote control and for browsing through files.

Available for Ubuntu: 9.10, 10.04, 10.10, 11.04, 11.10, 12.04, 12.10, 13.04
