Childsplay is a suite of educational games for young children. It's written in Python and uses the SDL-libraries. The aim is to be educational and at the same time be fun to play.
Some activities make use of language dependent voice samples, these sounds are shared with gcompris. For those you'll have to install the gcompris-sound package for the languages you intend to use. For example gcompris-sound-en.
Just add the openSUSE-Education Repository to your installation sources or try the one click installation using http://software.opensuse.org/. Afterwards you should find a new desktop entry "Childsplay" in your menu.
Childsplay understands the following commandline arguments:
|--fullscreen||Starts Childsplay in fullscreen (doesn't work on dualscreens at the moment.|
|--window||Normal behavior: start in a separate window.|
|--no-splash||Don't show the splashscreen during start.|
|--kiosk-mode||Currently not implemented|
|--version||Show the version number of Childsplay.|
|--help||Currently not really useful.|
Childsplay creates a directory .childsplay in the homedirectory of a user during the first start. This directory contains a lot of controlling stuff.
The main configuration file is .childsplay/ConfigData/childsplayrc. This file has good explanations about each config-option, so we don't repeat it here.
