Note: Since switching to GNOME 3 and gnome-shell, the games are no longer in my face all the time, so I am rarely tempted by them. Thus, I no longer update this package. It works for GNOME 2 in Debian squeeze, but I don't know if it will work later. If not, and you want it, please fix.
I find it quite distracting to have games on my laptop. The Debian GNOME packaging is such that it insists on always including the games. To solve this dilemma, I wrote a simple fake games package.
To use, get source from version control and build by running
make. You'll need
equivs and a Debian system.
