silverflux allows you to easily install and manage commercial games on your GNU/Linux system. Only games with available GNU/Linux native binaries are supported at this time, but extensions for running games under wine/cedega/dosbox are planned.

silverflux automagically installs, downloads patches, and configures games without any required user intervention. silverflux project is a truely simplified game management system.

The intended audience for this software includes desktop as well as advanced end users.

silverflux was created to fill in the last linux gaming deficiency; the interface between the user and the system. silverflux provides the glue that prevents the user from fumbling with ill-concieved and clumsy game installers (both windows and linux native).

Instead an advanced user figures out how an optimal installation works then creates an automated script; thus simplifying the installation process for everyone. This is especially important for enabling games on wine where config files often need to be tweaked manually. everyone benefits.


1. extract the archive
$ tar zxvf silverflux-0.6.0.tar.gz
2. add silverflux binaries to your path (this is a required step). you will want to add this path to the end of your ~/.bashrc file so you won't have to type this all the time.
$ PATH="$PATH:$PWD/silverflux-0.6.0/bin"
3. start the gui
$ silverflux-gui

What's New in This Release:
A lot of work has been done on code clean-up.
Various important features have been finalized.
A simple Python-based GUI interface is now available.
