    [SOLVED] Bridge on Linux?


    My mother is a Bridge player and does not like Contract Bridge nearly as much as the "ordinary" kind. I have looked for a FOSS linux version without success (spent about 90 minutes one night recently). The distro she'll be working with will be either ubuntu or mint.

    Maybe someone here could make a suggestions or give me a lead off the top of their head -- it would be appreciated by both of us!

    For me contract bridge is the "ordinary" kind. I'm not sure what bridge you're referring to. Do you mean whist? (3 players). In any event, are you looking for something like this? It might help if you described what you're looking for a bit better. If it's not contract bridge and it's not whist then I don't really know what you want. Another possibility is here. Googling will doubtless produce more.

    Solved

    GGZ Gaming Zone was what I was looking for -- whatever a person wishes to call it (I've never heard of whilst, except as an old-fashioned tense of "while")!

    Thanks from both of us -- she's 80 in the next year, so I cannot expect her to explain herself with 100% accuracy and precision -- despite your confusion, you came through!

    No. Not whilst, whist (without the "l"). Google it and you'll see if that's what she means (I'm not that much younger than she is by the way ).

    Your most welcome and I'm glad to have been of service.
