Strange signs with Arena chess software + Babas chess
I have got computer with Umbuntu linux from a friend. Im interesting in chess therefore I downloaded Arena chess Interface. But first of all
I made all that update that my fiend didnt do for 6 month!
I had also installed Babaschess. But suddenly Arena and the chess pieces
look crazy. The same with babaschess but only the letters.
excuse by bad english. Can any solve this?

Arena & Babas Chess under Ubuntu
Are you using Wine?
Instead of trying to use a Windows program under Linux, try using an excellent Linux program such as Eboard or Xboard.
Download and install both extra packages for Eboard and you will increase it's flexibility.
