NAME

       gnome-chess - graphical user interface for playing chess

SYNOPSIS

       gnome-chess [OPTIONS...]

DESCRIPTION

       gnome-chess is a graphical GNOME frontend for playing chess against the
       computer or via the Internet. It is also a viable PGN file  viewer.  To
       play  against  the computer, you need an external chess engine, such as
       GNU Chess, Crafty, or Phalanx.

OPTIONS

       Apart from the standard GNOME options gnome-chess accepts the following
       options:

       --version
              Prints  the  currently  installed  version of gnome-chess to the
              standard output.

       --help Prints a usage summary.  --debug=LEVEL  Enables  some  debugging
              functions, depending on LEVEL.

       --fcp=PROGRAM
              This  option  chooses the preferred chess program that will play
              the computer opponent. If this option is not  specified,  gnome-
              chess will choose one.

       --ics  If this option is specified, gnome-chess will start in ICS mode,
              meaning that it will connect to an Internet Chess Server.

       --icshost=SERVER
              Chooses the ICS server to use.

       --icsuser=USERNAME
              Sets the user name to use on ICS servers.

       --icspass=PASSWORD
              Sets the password to use on ICS servers.

       --icsport=PORT
              Chooses the ICS server’s port number to connect to.

       --icstelnetprogram=TELNET
              Chooses the telnet program to use to connect to an  ICS  server.
              This defaults to the standard telnet program.
