Aaah, you're going the difficult road of compiling from source - which 
is a baaad idea if you're a newbie.

First, under Linux, you DON'T download-and-hit-setup-ok-ok-ok-done; it's 
much, MUCH more difficult.

You go to add/remove softwares (in Ubuntu and Mandriva at least; other 
distributions will use Yum, Synaptics, Yast), you look for the software 
you want (probably "KDE games"), select it, apply, wait a minute (funny 
messages saying 'updating repositories' then 'downloading' then 
'installing' will appear on screen then disappear), and start if from 
the fresh menu added to your applications menu.

Once you're a real geek, you can download sources, compile them, create 
packages from them and run the software you've just built yourself.
