How to make a .slashemrc-gtk config file in linux
The Slash'em config file for the GTK version of the game is a little different than the standard NetHack Options .
Create ~/.slashemrc-gtk (the -gtk is necessary for the GTK version of the game). Its contents should contain something like the following:
OPTIONS=name:Bucket,catname:Tequilla,dogname:Beowulf,horsename:MrEd OPTIONS=color,hilite_pet,lit_corridor OPTIONS=help,!news,mail,silent,time OPTIONS=showexp,showrace,showweight,showdmg OPTIONS=pickup_types:$ TILES=name:Small tiles,file:x11tiles TILES=name:Big tiles,file:x11bigtiles,transparent TILES=name:Big 3D tiles,file:x11big3dtiles,transparent,pseudo3D OPTIONS=tiles:Small tiles
This will start the game with the small tiles, and auto-pickup only money. Then you must add to your ~/.bashrc (or appropriate shell rc) the following:
Be sure to "source ~/.bashrc" after saving. Most of this info was copied from here.
