game not working in 38

Thought I would ask here first. It's a minor thing. Installed Fedora 38 KDE yesterday. Installed gnome-mahjongg but it does not work. launches ok , but will not allow any click on any tile except one. It strange the game works fine on all other distros. Including other KDE distros. So I'm a little at a loss as to why it doesn't in fedora. I know that's not much to go on but if you have and suggestions they would be appreciated. (my wife likes to play it :)
When I launch if from a terminal I get this warning.
(gnome-mahjongg:7811): Gtk-WARNING **: 06:00:47.473: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:1652:16: '-gtk-icon-size' is not a valid property name

The gtk warning about theme parsing error is not a valid property name is greek to me.
I would google that exact message and see if that produces anything.
I can't look right now but will when I return from running errands.

Maybe a library or 2 that is gnome based is missing? Or some change you could make, maybe add a repo?

See here:

There's kmahjongg for KDE. It should be in your default repos.

Thanks @KGIII,
Already have that installed, wife likes the gnome one better. so will wait till they fix it in fedora or move on.
The gnome one works for me. Also kshisen works.
Maybe it's a KDE thing? I run MATE, Gnome and Budgie, works on all three.
My wife is just the opposite, she runs kmahjongg on MATE, I do notice there
are a LOT of klib libraries that get loaded in the background.
