My workaround for now, it's possible to run the Windows Solitaire through Wine.

Caution, don't try on production machines without fear of dealing with problems.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine

wine /host/WINDOWS/system32/spider.exe
wine /host/WINDOWS/system32/freecell.exe
wine /host/WINDOWS/system32/sol.exe
wine /host/WINDOWS/system32/mshearts.exe

spider.exe is Spider Solitaire
freecell.exe is FreeCell
sol.exe is Solitaire
mshearts.exe is Hearts

Copy Windows Solitaire to your Linux desktop
cp /host/WINDOWS/system32/spider.exe /home/USERNAME/Desktop && cp /host/WINDOWS/system32/freecell.exe /home/USERNAME/Desktop && cp /host/WINDOWS/system32/sol.exe /home/USERNAME/Desktop && cp /host/WINDOWS/system32/mshearts.exe /home/USERNAME/Desktop && cp /host/WINDOWS/system32/mfc42u.dll /home/USERNAME/Desktop

I had a friend who had trouble with Shishen Sho being slow in KDE 4.8.3 and 4.8.4 in Ubuntu 12.04. Updating to KDE 4.9 fixed the problem.
