Hi Kris,

I wanted to give it a try, but I always get the following error output:

root at om-gta02:~# ko-lightsaber
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ko-lightsaber", line 4, in <module>
    import pygame.mixer
ImportError: No module named pygame.mixer

Any idea what's the problem here? I installed the pygame package you suggested
