Palapeli is a single-player jigsaw puzzle game by Stefan Majewsky for the KDE Interface for Unix-like operating systems. The puzzle pieces are freely moveable and everything you do is saved immediately. The puzzles are saved in a collection. It just has 5 puzzles to start with and then people are supposed to scour the web for some images and make own puzzles. Below you find some puzzles I collected over time. Palapeli is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL), Version 2.
For some reason there are no pre-made puzzles available online. So, I created a few collections. All of them are of 10 to 15 different puzzles. All puzzles are sliced as "Classic jigsaw pieces" into roughly between 100 and 300 puzzle pieces. For more infos about each used picture and a preview: scroll down… far down… ☺

I don’t know how all the rights stuff is to handle. Nearly all images are from wikicommons, own fotographs or taken by friends. So they *should* all be free to use — as far as I understand this… The collections are made privately and are intended for private use only. They are not included in the game as a commercial product or such stuff. As far as I know, the images could not even be extracted from the puzzle file. Anyway, if you don’t want your image to be included for some reason, email to yantri(a)yellowspace·net, and I will remove it. The person on the contact page of yantri.net is NOT responsible for anything on this page, made by the web admin.
Click on the name to download, unpack it, and save it to a appropriate directory, e.g. ~/Games/Palapeli/. I guess on a standard installation it shoud be the following for “castles” (without guarantee):
tar -xzf ~/Downloads/castles.tar
mv ~/Downloads/castles ~/Games/Palapeli/
Then, start your Palapeli Puzzle Game and click the “Import” button. Navigate to “Games/Palapeli/castles”. Click on an empty space and drag a selection square over all puzzles files. Then click “open” to get all the puzzles loaded into your collection at once — or simply hit enter?!☺
Have fun playing!
I don’t know what will happen, if you copy the .puzzle files directly into the “~/.kde/share/apps/palapeli/collection” directory, where your collection files are stored, but named a bit cryptic…
Puzzle files can also be played by simply clicking on them in the file manager of your choice, but after the import, the puzzle will appear in your local collection, and you can delete the downloaded puzzle file.
