    Hi and Welcome !

    It looks like you are using K Desktop Environment (KDE). Which Linux distro/version are you using?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You can install packages, games through Package Manger. KDE uses Adept Package Manager but I prefer Synaptic over Adept. Synaptic is not pre-installed in KDE.
    Open Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    su -
    apt-get update
    apt-get install synaptic
    Above code will install Synaptic Package Manager. Open Synaptic ( look for its entry in Menu ) and type games in Search box. Read description of all searched packages and install whatever you like.
    Here is a Tutorial on Synaptic Package Manager. It's for Ubuntu and it works fine for Debian too.

    I think you mean kde 3.5 don't you? Otherwise you are far ahead of everyone else in the world including the kde devs.
    If you click on the "k" button you should see a bunch of menus including a "Games" menu. There you will find the menu item "Games for Kids". Just click on the game that interests you and it should open up.
    ciao,

    It's really difficult to help you when you give so little details. I would suggest you take one problematic case and describe it in detail (don't leave anything out) and we can try to solve that. Then we go on to the next case. Is that ok?
