Unhappy glChess of Gnome-games, How to start it by line command?

Dear All,

I have installed the gnome-games package to my eee-pc by Synaptic. I want to start the glChess game that is part of gnome-games. It has to be started by line command in the terminal (There is no start menu in eee-pc).

I can start games like these:
Sudoku by command "gnome-sudoku"
Minesweeping by command "gnomine"
Mahjongg by command "mahjongg"

Anyone please tell me how to start the glChess game that comes with gnome-games, by line command.

You need to run an X terminal emulator ('xterm') is popular.

Then again you can create an icon - if I can recall correctly, right-click the desktop and look through the menus to create an icon to run glchess. (I haven't used GNOME for 7 years!)

Also, GNOME and KDE are often (though not always) configured so that [alt][F2] brings up a "Run Command" dialog; just type in 'glchess' and [enter].
