bring back Same-gnome, dump Swell foop

Asked by Sysadmin on 2010-07-13

Same Gnome was fine as it was. and very popular in our circles. Since Lucid, same-gnome has been replaced by Sweep foop and it is probably linked to the fact that it has become totally slow, CPU consuming, and finally just totally unplayable.

So, here is my question: is it possible to have Same-gnome back?

If something works well DON'T FIX IT!

you can have them both goto system- admin.- synaptic package manager , then click search a window will pop up put in Same-gnome then click search and it will show up , then click it mark for install then click the green arrow by the top to apply then close and go see if you have it .

Doesnt work for me on 10.10 :(((

Synaptic has never heard of "same gnome" or "same-gnome"

if I "apt-get install same-gnome" then I'm told that same-gnome has been replaced by "Swell Foop" but I dont see any mention of that on

Looks to me like the package may be missing the tiles or something (Game just has coloured blocks where the tiles should be and doesn't respond to mouse clicks)

Is it worth me trying to grab a copy of the source and fixing it ? I've never had to package anything for Debian/Ubuntu before and I heard the people managing the repository can be quite strict about how packages are put together.

 i managed to get it back on my older pc by installing 9.10 then upgrading to 10.04 and it stayed in the game list and runes . i did not try it with 10.10 .

Can you help with this problem?
