Also GTK-only for Xfce.
Looks like support may be available on KDE, but nothing obvious under Cygwin for
gnome-games, solitaire (US term - non-US peg game), or aisleriot.
The KDE equivalent appears to be Patience (non-US term) which is in Cygwin
package kpat.

Looks like aisleriot may have been available via Cygwin ports at one time, is
available on many Linux distros, and in the OpenDesktop KDE Store.
There is also Python/Tk package pysol, with a PySol Fan Club fork pysolfc
available on many Linux distros, from https://github.com/shlomif/PySolFC .

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
