Djl a game manager for Ubuntu

Djl is an open-source (GPL licensed) game manager written in Python 2.5 for the GNU/Linux Operating Systems. It is inspired by Valve’s Steam software for Windows.

Djl makes it possible (via a repository) to download, install and remove a reasonable number of games placed into a distrobution independent subdirectory (but without dealing with any dependencies). It can also execute .desktop shortcuts located in another directory (this way, it’s possible to launch games which were installed before djl).

Several games (see “List of games on repository” page) are available in the repository. Anyone can submit new games to developers via a web page. The list of games is regularly updated from the internet, so it’s not static.
