The first official binary version of Lucas Chess on Linux has just been released. It has only been made possible by the great work done by Laudecir Daniel , choosing and compiling the 67 engines, as well as laying the groundwork so that the binaries can be more widely used and others such as shortcut creation, installation scripts, ...... In addition, Graham O'Neill has provided Linux-specific drivers for several digital boards. This version has two limitations : 64-bit Linux OS only. Minimum GNU libc version: 2.26 (ldd --version shows it) Installation has been made as simple as possible: The installer is a .sh file, generated with the makeself tool, and can be downloaded from: SourceForge , GitHub The file must be run from a terminal with user permissions only: sh ./LucasChessR123_LINUX.sh Launches a GUI with very basic options: Install: Installs in LucasChessR folder inside the home user folder. Generates a shortcut in Applications > Games Launch the application at the end
Thanks again for your great program!
I'm now on Linux.
Is there a way to use Lucas Chess on Linux, with those chess engines that work on Linux?
What would I need to do?
I guess I'd be happy to make Lucas Chess work with a single engine, if it can adjust its level...
Is theoretically easy to prepare a version for Linux.
There are plenty of engines for linux, the problem may be finding a level of 1400 as Tarrasch, so the version of linux and windows can not be identical.
With Wine works perfectly.
My work platform is Windows XP, and I am hoping someone will be encouraged to prepare a version for Linux, I would give the basic support.
Thanks! It does work great in Wine!
(I think I don't know Linux enough to try to port LucasChess to it :)
