2.2 Precompiled files
The easiest way to get a running copy of Chess++ is to go to
the donwload page of our project at Sourceforge and download
either the .msi file for Windows or a .run for Linux (sorry, but we do not
provide any binary files for other OSes.)
2.2.1 Installing Chess++ under Windows
Installing Chess++ under Windows is very easy as we offer
a comfortable .msi installer. Just download and run the
file, follow the instructions on the screen, and you are done.
After installing, Chess++ can be started from the Windows start menu.
See chapter 5 to learn how to use
2.2.2 Installing Chess++ under GNU/Linux
As root, run the command sh chesspp_X.X.X_rXXX.Linux.run
(where the Xs
stand for some version and revision numbers) from the directory where that file is located.
This will install Chesspp, Cheppd,
and Cheppd-setup in /usr/local/bin
and the default set of pieces in
Chesspp can now be invoked by typing chesspp into a terminal (if
/usr/local/bin is in your system's PATH variable.)
