Description:

Knights is a simple chess board for KDE 4. It is a rewrite of the KDE3 Knights.

Its home page with regular updates is at http://noughmad.com/knights.

You can play againts computer engines that support the XBoard protocol (like GnuChess), against anouther player at the same computer, or on the Free Internet Chess Server. It has automatic rule checking and some nice animations.

For compiling, you need KDE as well as libkdegames headers, which are usually found in libkdegames-dev or libkdegames-devel packages.

Packages can be downloaded form build.opensuse.com, however try to use your distribution's version when possible. In any case, please report any problems, bugs, and wishes to bugs.kde.org (product knights).

The source archive includes a README.themes file with info for creating and sharing new themes for Knights. They can be uploaded to kde-look.org, and downloaded directly from Knights.

Due to a recent break of compatibility in KDEGames, versions from 2.5 onward require KDE 4.9 or newer. User of older KDE version should use the 2.4 branch.




Changelog:

Version 2.5.0: Port to new KDEGames library, compatible with KDE 4.9

Version 2.4.2: A handful of usability fixes

Version 2.4.1 introduces support for the UCI protocol, setting the difficulty level of chess engines, game history display, and loading and saving PGN files.

Version 2.4.0 brings voice support, possibility of external control by dbus, and a couple of bug fixes.

Version 2.3.2 is a bugfix release with several fixes, mostly by Dave Kaye. It fixes drag-coused freezes, dropping pieces outside of the board, and a theme appearing twice in the selection dialog.

Version 2.3.1 fixed exactly one bug; the peace captured by en-passant is now properly removed.

The changelog since the last stable release (2.2.0) includes:

- Watching two engines play
- Improved time control support for chess engines
- Better support for the XBoard protocol means Knights can play with more engines, including Crafty, Sloppy, Sjeng and Phalanx.
- Players can now make and receive offer for draw, pause, undo, adjourn and abort. All except Draw are only used when playing on the chess server.
- Players can now undo their moves.
Improved game dialog, with more game options.
- Improved server dialog, with a seek graph.
- Ability to interact with a chess server or a computer engine via a text console.
- Simple chat widget for talking to your remote opponent.
- Selecting and moving pieces by clicking, without dragging.

hi I am trying to load different themes for this knights chess game and I get a, configuration file not found: "knights.knsrc".

Also could you upload all of the themes from sourceforge.net for this game? I am interested in the fritz gaming theme for this fine chess game. Here is the link for those other themes from sourceforge.net. http://sourceforge.net/projects/knights/files/knights-themepack/

Thank you.

That readme for your themes is not working in the apt-get for the knights chess game. Its not found in the .desktop hidden folder here on my KDE desktop for ubuntu. I uploaded one theme for this game and its not working here on the KDE website. My config file was added to the .tar gz as stated in your readme theme file.

I will sidedownload one of the apps here in a few days and see if it will work.

Did a <sudo find /.desktop> in the terminal, it did not find it.

Please input below the directory for the themes on this game so I can find it on my machine. Thanks.

Its also not in the usr/share/themes directory either.

Nevermind. I found you need to convert the images to svg. I looked over one of your other themes. I will try to change that one theme I uploaded here in a couple of days and correct that tarball.

I got that theme of mine up up in the KDE knights theme section. Its still not applying through the theme option for that app. I can not figure it out. Could you take a look over my theme and .desktop settings here at this link? I saved it as stated in the help theme read me file I found in your app. Used UTF-8 setting in gedit. I must be missing something. Here is the link. http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Fritz+look?content=157848

I went over your other themes and took a look over them on the .desktop configuration files, still not applying in your app. Any help would be appreciated. Did my theme in inkscape as an .svg. Thank you.

Hello!

I can see you figured most of the things out, and thank you for the theme. Yes, Knights uses a libkdegames, which needs a slightly different format (.desktop file and SVG) than the KDE3 version on SourceForge.

I just tried installing you theme, and while it can be installed from Settings => Theme, it is not detected after installing. I checked it, and there are actually multiple things wrong with the theme (or with the program, whichever way you see it, they're mostly limitations of the kdegames library).

- files in archive are in a folder (Fritz_look_alike). This way the program can't find them, put them directly in the archive as top-level items.
- the .desktop file is missing a [KGameTheme] line at the top
- I see you included a separate .svg for each piece. No need to do that. Instead, have them all in one top-level svg (as you already do). However, the pieces in this file should be labeled. In Inkscape, this can be done by right click => Object Properties => Id. Set the object Id's to BlackTile, WhiteBishop etc.

You also have some files that are not needed in the archive (two hidden lock files, README and themes.conf). Nothing wrong with that, except taking up space. To avoid adding hidden files (and fix the first problem), select files for compression individually.

Once again, thank you for your work on the theme. If you have any more problems, please email me (miha@noughmad.eu) instead of posting here. You can also find me in #kde and #kde-devel channels as Noughmad.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
