Are you sure you understood post #14? Two people sit in front of a computer and run the 2-player chess program. They share the same keyboard. One of them makes a move. The only thing the program does is to show the resulting position. Then the other human player which is sitting by the side of the first human player makes a move. And again the program does nothing except show the resulting position. That is none of the two humans sitting in front of the computer is playing against the program. They are playing one against the other.

Some chess programs offer the ability to let two human players to play a chess game in this way (2-player). For example Psion chess.exe.
I think none of the posters in the thread you so kindly have provided understands the OP. I have personally tried each of the programs suggested to the OP (Xboard, eboard, etc) and none of them is suitable for 2-player games.

Yes, I am entirely sure I understood clearly what was requested by "a chess program that lets two humans to play a chess game on the same machine" and "linux chess human vs human same computer" which is why I verified PyChess actually had such a mode before posting

Did you bother to actually try PyChess? Or even look at screenshots, such as this one?

:/

If you are unhappy with the help you have received here, then perhaps you should stop being a help vampire and actually bother to look for things yourself. Instead of wasting our time doing searches that you should be able to do yourself.

Not that I plan on doing your searches for you, that said...
