In order to run Haundrix Chess you need to have Java installed, version 6 or later.
To verify that you have the right version installed, and download it if necessary go to the official Java website.
If you're on Linux, we recommend that you use the OpenJDK package that comes with your distribution.

While you wait for the download to complete, take a tour of Haundrix Chess to learn how to use it effectively.

known issues




The issues below apply depending on your choice of Java implementation:
  • If you're using Sun's Java implementation, then you may experience problems with the sound effects in the game. The main symptom is failing to simultaneously play any sound from Haundrix Chess and other applications in your desktop. Also, some sounds may be missed even when there's no other application using the sound system. This issue is due to the fact the Sun's Java Sound implementation does not make use of the underlying Pulse Audio sound system.
  • If you're using the OpenJDK Java implementation, then the diagram clipboard copy functionality will not work.
If you do not use the diagram clipboard copy functionality too often, then you'll get the best results with regard to the sound effects if you use the OpenJDK Java implementation of your distribution as we suggest.
