Hum... you have a Linux GPL version available but it's a trial only download, and one must pay for the full version?

Are you sure you have read the GPL?

Hi Ludovic!

Mahjong Zodiac for Linux does not a GPL licensed game. It is a commercial project. We have a full version for $9.99 with 96 levels and a binary only Public Domain (not GPL) demo version for free.

Have a nice day!
