Plays a game of chess, includes GUI and CLI. Run "gnuchess.readme" for more information!
Gnuchess is an updated version of the GNU chess playing program. It is now based on the fruit chess engine and uses the UCI chess engine protocol. It has a simple alpha-numeric board display, and is also compatible with frontends like xboard, scid and eboard.
This snap package also includes the xboard graphical frontend, which can be used either to play with gnuchess as an engine, or over the internet on any ICS-compatible service.
Run "gnuchess" for the CLI engine, "gnuchess.xboard" for the GUI frontend, and "gnuchess.readme" for more information.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).

On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
