NingPo Mah Jong for Linux Installation Instructions

To install NingPo Mah Jong for Linux, download the file and execute the following at your command prompt (terminal):

sh /path/to/ningpo-linux.bin

An installer will take you through the rest of the steps, such as where to install it, viewing the README, and accepting the EULA.

The game can be installed as root for system-wide use (although registration keys are stored separately, so multiple Unix accounts can legally use the same installed copy in theory), in which case the recommended installation dir is /usr/local/games. If superuser access isn't available, the game can be installed in your home directory or elsewhere at your discretion.

If you use Gnome or KDE, the installer can optionally install an icon in your start menu. A symbolic link to the game may be optionally installed in the user's path, as well, so that the game may be started from the command prompt by typing:

ningpo

To uninstall NingPo Mah Jong, from a command prompt, run:

/where/i/installed/ningpo/uninstall

This will remove the game files and any symbolic links and icons that were installed. The game settings and registration keys that might have been stored are not removed from the system, in case you wish to reinstall it later. That information is stored in $HOME/.pyrogon/, if you wish to remove it manually.
