OK you need to add these lines to you game start up script.
here is an example for quake3.
Code:

#!/bin/sh
# Needed to make symlinks/shortcuts work.
# Wrap Quake III binary
export __GL_FSAA_MODE=5
export __GL_DEFAULT_LOG_ANISO=3
cd "/usr/local/games/quake3"
./quake3.x86 $*
exit $?

the file you need to edit in this case is
/usr/local/games/bin/quake3
You will have to add the 2 export lines.
For any other game you will have to write or edit a similar startup script.

Right I get it, thanks alot.

So if I want to do it for UT2003 do I create a script like that, or do all games come with a script like that in there folder?

Most games will have a startup script (or you can make one). This allows individually configured AA/AF settings per game (pretty nifty). If you want the settings applied globally, add them to your .bash_profile in your homedir.

Thank you for your time,

You may add those two export lines to your rc.init file (look for it inside your /home/<username> directory).

All your games will use those features automatically.
