Installing and Running
poker2d is available under the Fedora Community repository, and can be installed using the yum tool. To install, either use a front-end tool (like pirut) or issue the following command in a terminal as root:
yum install poker2d
This will grab the game and all its dependencies from the Internet, so you need to be connected to the Internet. After installing, you can run the program under the menu:
Games -> Card Games -> poker2d
Or press ALT+F2 on your desktop (or go to a terminal like
poker2d, and press Enter.
yum install poker2d-kde
poker2d will create a directory in your
$HOME directory called
.poker2d/. This directory contains a file called
poker2d.xml which contains configuration parameters such as which server to establish a connection with.
Other configuration options may be set from the Options menu in game.
poker2d is automatically configured to connect to
poker.pokersource.info where you will be able to create an account and start playing. Once connected, you can select the type of game you wish to play by pressing the buttons at the top of the screen from the lobby. Two types of money are available,
custom, where custom money is usually considered to be real money, but varies from server to server.
KDE users who installed the
poker2d-kde package will have the following hot-keys available to them:
CTRL-Right- Increase Raise
CTRL-Left- Decrease Raise
CTRL-Up- Increase Raise by amount of big blind
CTRL-Down- Decrease Raise by amount of big blind
CTRL-P- Raise the amount that is in the pot
CTRL-H- Raise half the amount that is in the pot
- You can win real money for free by playing in freeroll tournaments. These are sometimes hosted by the default server and you can locate them by clicking on the "Regular" and "Custom Money" buttons.
