Bs'd

I have CT Art 3.0, but it won't play in Ubuntu Linux, and starting up
windows all the time is a pain in the ...

So I'm looking for a bunch of good tactical exercises which will work
in Linux.

Suggestions anyone?

Just Visit http://www.GetClub.com/Chess.html and start playing Chess.
Winning Beginner Level is as good as solving a Chess Puzzle.

Its very difficult to get a win. Your games are recorded so you can
analyze why you lost or win a game.

I got it going now, but some symbols are not displayed. But I can
work with it.

I also run Ubuntu Linux, and CT Art 3.0 runs perfectly under the Wine
emulator. Most Convekta products will run under Wine with no problems
at all.

You can get Scid at http://prolinux.free.fr/scid/ : there is a training
feature in it (for example mate in N moves exercises), but it does
contain exercises as good as those present in CT ART.

Sorry, I should have written "but it does NOT
contain exercises as good as those present in CT ART."

For the record, the above is *no* Scid. It is a fake.

See my post under the title "Fake Scid."

One thing to do is to ask Convekta directly. Chessville has a forum [google
it, delphiforums] which they attend and answer technical questions - perhaps
they have an answer for you? I know emulators are a slow means to run
software. Cordially, Phil Innes
