chess ?

Postby jemadux » 04 Feb 2014, 21:00

I dont think that you play chess , but as board game i like it ..

if you want a simply datebase for game I insist scidvspc

on archlinux is simple things yaourt -S scid_vs_pc

if you want to play on free interner chess server or fics

the program that you may use is eboard
on archlinux is yaourt -S eboard
but if you want some extras eboard-extra ( for themes and sounds)

or you can play online on chess.com or chesscube i prefer fics btw

Thanks for the tip :s
I have played chess since I was 7. I am not a chess player - I am just playing it.
Installed it and testing it now:

In general there is some chess interest here since we have this nerdy kid - Magnus Carlsen in the neighborhood....

You might want to install octopi from AUR that is a nice pacman GUI (perfect for searching for software in both AUR and in the repos). Octopi keeps you notified when your AUR's have updates.

Code: Select all

yaourt octopi


Edit:
scid vs pc works just fine :s I had to install gnuchess to get the eboard working. It does not say that it lacks it and has gnuchess in the engine list - but it was not installed!
After installing it - I could pick the gnuchess engine and use eboard :B
