PostPosted: Thu 06 Oct 2011, 12:25    Post subject:  chess frontends and engines  

Here are some chess engines, required to play any kind of chess.
(I just collected them in 1 place, and compiled a couple of updates)

I also attached some frontends, nice interfaces for playing chess.

One of these is cboard, which is a tiny, CLI frontend. It supports a number of chess engines, but I cannot get cboard to work!!

- I will update this main post with cboard details on making cboard work when I find out!

Mostly, these pets should work in most modern pups, but not 4.3 and earlier... (I think)

To make cboard work with gnuchess, install both, then run this command in the terminal:

Code:
mkdir -p /root/.cboard
echo "engine_cmd   gnuchess xboard" > /root/.cboard/config

(use SHIFT+INSERT to paste into the terminal)

You could also try
Code:
engine_cmd   fairymax
but I cannot seem to make fairymax work with cboard - the computer player takes forever to make the 2nd move Question
