Installing missing GNOME games


I just realized that my Fedora 19 installation didn’t have any of the GNOME games installed by default any more. I guess there’s no love for nibbles. Here’s a quick one-liner to get them all back:

$ sudo yum search game | grep gnome | awk '{print $1}' | xargs sudo yum install -y

This isn’t a master hack, but it’s good to think about using command line magic to do your day-to-day tasks.

Happy gaming,
