    Are you sure thats all the output?
    Well anyway you need to obtain gdiplus.dll from a Windows system.

    Or from here gdiplus.dll free download - DLL-files.com

    Put that file in the same Folder as your ChessGame.

    Hope that works =)

    Took a quick look at this and it is a port of xboard to windows.
    Here is the LINK
    You should be able to just install xboard.

    I engaged the same problem - Babas without Pieces

    My FIX - change owner for files in Babas folder from root to user.

    Smile virtualbox is my solution for babashchess under linux

    After struggling with various malfunctions of babaschess under wine, I've started using babaschess under windows xp installed in linux's VIRTUALBOX. It works great - just wanted to share the idea with others. Let me know if you find it useful!
