I'm interested in testing it.
I've a Kobo Touch updated to 2.1.5 and also a friend with Kobo Glo also updated to 2.1.5.
Let me know how to try and test your application.

Thanks, ilpestifero!

I'll try to set up SDK and compile test Qt applications first.

Hello,

I own a Kobo Glo, and I am interested to help you with pbchess. There is already a chess programm on the glo, but it is rather limited. I think that pbchess will be a great alternative.

Thanks! Besides I have 3 games: Sokoban, Reversi (Otherllo) and Checkers. They can be compiled for Kobo Touch too.

kalimero, ilpestifero

Important question:

Are you familiar (at least a bit) with linux shell? Can you connect to your Kobo through telnet or SSH? It would be great!

Today I can compile sokoban and we can try to run it.

Hi,

I have no problem with linux shell, as I am a programmer under Linux.
As for accessing Kobo with telnet, I found this :
http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kobo_Touch_Hacking
It seems well documented.
I can't test this now, I have to come back to home first )

Yes, I have chess program on Kobo extras... And what?

pbchess is not "another program to play chess". It's a powerful chess training program. You can improve your tactics, openings, endgame (we have a lot of training bases for different levels - see first post). You can browse annotated games of grandmasters, you can do many other things! It's for real chess fans
