Thank you for your answer! (Must say that I've read your answers
to other questions and they're allways good :-)

dm looks interesting! But... It says that games should be put in
/usr/games/hide     directory of ``real'' binaries
and KDE-games are located in /usr/local/bin. Does this mean I have
to relocate all KDE-games to /usr/games/hide? Or can one put sym-
bolic links in /usr/games/hide to the KDE-games?
