Your profile shows: "Last Activity: 11-11-09", so I don't know if you will see this. Maybe it will help someone else. ...

Did you mark this thread "[SOLVED]" on purpose?
  • If so, kindly post the solution -- even though this is an old post, it still might help someone else w/ the same, or a similar, problem.
  • If not, I suggest you unmark it so that you can get the help you're asking for.
  • If you need help unmarking it, ask.

Wink 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.
