    Well, the basic card games are in the package 'kdegames3'
    (numerous versions of klondike/solitare). There are
    additional KDE games in the packages 'kdegames-arcade',
    'kdegames3-board', 'kdegames3-card', and 'kdegames3-tactic'.

    In addition, I counted over 100 game packages (some containing
    multiple games) in 'YaST/Install and Remove Software/Games'

    The basic game package, 'kdegames3', should have been installed
    by default when SuSE 9.2 was installed. If that is the case,
    there should be a 'Games' submenu on your Start Menu, and the
    menu item 'Card Games' is the one you're looking for. Once
    it's started, select 'Settings/Game Type' to select any of
    the 18 card games (including Klondike/Solitaire).

    The name of the executable for any entry on the Start Menu
    can be determined by right-clicking the mouse on the Start
    Menu and selecting 'Menu Editor' from the resulting pop-up
    menu. Once 'Menu Editor' is started you can browse the menu
    structure and examine the properties (including executable
    file name) of any menu item.

    In a default SuSE 9.2 install, the solitaire variants are
    all provided by the program '/opt/kde3/bin/kpat' - know as
    'Patience'. This is the program executed when
    '/Games/Card Games' is selected from the SuSE KDE Start Menu.

    Regards,
    Larry
