Well, since I haven't done a new mythtv install from scratch in a very
long time... I can say that *I* still use the gamelist.xml file method
that was for the old mythgame and it seems to continue to work.

the gamelist.xml file is still in the svn code, so I presume it's
still a supported way of adding linux programs to mythgame, and I
presume the default path is $PREFIX/share/mythtv/games/PC/gamelist.xml

I use mythgame for launching the following native linux games/programs
fullscreen with reasonable success:

Google Earth
Frets on Fire
prboom (doom)
d2k-sdl (descent 2)
Ur Quan Masters
