GCompris intent is to provide a central location where a user can find different kind of small educational content called boards. Today there is already a lot of free software that provides a small education content. Unfortunatly, it is difficult to track, intall and use them because they do not evolve at the same speed and offer their own user interface. GCompris aims to provide a unique user interface that gives access to different boards. GCompris is part of the GNU project. Once started, GCompris presents a graphical view that includes from top to bottom: 1. Boards icon list Each icon represent a board. When you move the mouse over them, they are highlighted and the name and description of the board is displayed in the board description area. 2. Boards description area Display a small description of what the highlited board icon is about. Note that the descriptions are internationalized which means translated in a target language (See section Internationalization Issues for more information on Internationalization). 3. Control bar: The control bar is always present in GCompris. This icons are contextual which means that when an icon is not meaningfull in a specific context, it is simply not displayed. The control bar contains the icons from left to right: 1. Help: In some case, a board can be too complex to be described in the Board description area. In this case this will provide access to the additionnal instructions. 2. Level: Some boards provide different level. The number of levels is board dependant. 3. OK: Some boards do not automatically detect that the child has finish the given task. Clicking here is similar to entering RET on the keyboard and thus the RET key is a shortcut. 4. End: End the current board if any, otherwise Exit GCompris. When entered at the board menu level, it will create a dialog window to confirm the Exit of GCompris. 5.
