I have it compiled with Qt on Linux from source.

Setting about the required modifications:

Would like some tips on a) adding the required bits and bobs

b) getting it running with qtkindle.

Many many thanks

I shuffled my efforts of kindling Backgammon so far onto: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...07#post2172107

Basically I have x-compiler ready and code in eclipse, looking a couple of Qtkindle pointers if anyone has any ideas. Thanks

Good news :) It's broken

Good news It's broken

Well. I manged to get this projects build (k3chess) to fail in exactly the same way the backgammon project is failing to x-compile

Code:
ChessBoardView.cpp:1035:24: warning: variable 'piece' set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
In file included from /usr/include/qt4/QtCore/qobject.h:48:0,
                 from /usr/include/qt4/QtGui/qwidget.h:46,
                 from /usr/include/qt4/QtGui/QWidget:1,
                 from ChessBoardView.h:4,
                 from ChessBoardView.cpp:1:
/usr/include/qt4/QtCore/qatomic_i386.h: In destructor 'QString::~QString()':
/usr/include/qt4/QtCore/qatomic_i386.h:132:29: error: impossible constraint in 'asm'
make: *** [ChessBoardView.o] Error 1
Since they fail in exactly the same way I can only conclude it's the same link to qtkindle that is misconfigged, this gives me hope I can get the DEFINES += QT_KEYPAD_NAVIGATION setup once I have this missing piece of the puzzle sorted.

Obviously I need to point qmake to do something more sensible - or possibly just nerf the includes and point at the .so.x's

Any input appreciated as I'm rather at a loss. Will keep on trawling.

Does anyone know if K3Chess works on the kindle paper white?
Can anyone link me to a beginners guide to installing it?
Does the program affect the battery much?
I don't suppose it can interface to the chess servers?

Thanks
Mike

The bizarre thing is I'm quite comfortable in Unix shell, I even write chess programs myself (front end and engine) as a small hobby but I have no clue what I'm supposed to do to install this on my Kindle PW.

If you want to use the KUAL extension you should install KUAL then use this extension. Note that it is not the same but similar.

Alt+Back workaround for Kinle 4 NT

Hey, greetings from Russia and thanks for a great app.

I've succesfully launched K3Chess on Kindle 4 NT. I'm leaving a short guide for those who need it. This works for jailbroken device (no usb network needed at all):

1) To install cr3runner put the
'install.bin' file and 'qtkindle' folder into your device root folder. Then update your Kindle from the 'settings' menu.
(To uninstall, do the same with the 'uninstall.bin' file).
2) Update your cr3runner by replacing 'cr3runner-2.5.azw2' file in your 'documents' folder with cr3runner-2.6.azw2
3) Install 'k3chess' folder into 'cr3runner' folder, that was created in your device during installation (this is needed to avoid application permissions issues)
4) Replace all text in 'cr3runner/commands.txt' by this line (without quotation marks):
'/mnt/us/cr3runner/k3chess;goqt.sh;K3Chess;Chess'
5) Choose Cr3Runner from your home screen and press the 'Chess' button.
6) Enjoy

However i found it impossible to save in-game before i quit, because my Kindle has no physical keyboard and i can't press the 'Alt+Back' combination.

Please, please make it possible to reassign the quick exit button. I suffer a lot, since I can't read anything without aborting the game.

This problem has been solved in the latest version 0.1.7. There is also a dedicated kindlet that allows to launch K3Chess, so you may give it a try.

K3Chess was updated to work on Kindle 4. Please see the opening post for the instructions and download links.

I've got Kindle 4 (B00E) and I can't install the game. When I run "Update Your Kindle" I got a message that the installation was not successful. Kindle restarted automatically after that. Are there any installation logs in Kindle?
