I don't know anything about Kopete, but I like the game called Pioneers. It's in the repositories, and you can install it through Synaptic Package Manager (see my sig for instructions). SuperTux is a fun one as well.
Or are you talking more commercial games?

kopete is an instant messenger like yahoo messenger i suppose .
i don't have synaptic package manager, whats in here is "adept" package manager.
i mean any games, commercial or free...
btw, whats repository? (forgive my ignorance). :)

Database of software packages.
You can try the KDE Games module.
sudo apt-get install kdegames

thanks for the games, mod. :)
do you know any commercial/online games that run on kubuntu?
is there any way to join public rooms in kopete?

As for Yahoo Groups I don't think it's on the roadmap: http://kopete.kde.org/roadmap.php
Right now I think the Kopete devs are working on Video & Voice chat. (Video is in.).

Just so you know... it's on the wishlist: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98370

Thanks so much. I've learned so many things here about kubuntu (& linux in general) in just a very short span of time. I am amazed and everything is great.
