    Sorry if that's wrong (note the year is quite old). I have quite a few games of Kevin Bonham in my hacked Ozbase DB, but none with ELOs. PM me your personal database if you like.

    I don't have the slightest how strong anyone except Max is around here .... and i'm only 1800 at a stretch, with no competitive experience.

    Actually is "Bonham" even meant to be the label for one of the lines shown, and if so which one? I assumed the brown line was me but maybe I am a red dot around the same place as Stojic in 2005? (That would make sense then.) If so who is the brown line?

    I am compiling a computer database of my old games but very slowly (I'm up to about 2001), and installing ratings is among my lower priorities.

    Yes - you're the red dot. The Brown line is Ly, but his name is being monstered by the indominitable Illingworth.

    Ah, that makes sense then. Games by me from the 2004-5 Aus Open especially are widely databased although I suspect most versions include only rounds 1-9.

    OK, I've given Scid vs PC a second chance, sorry to be a pain and ask the obvious, but how to I dock Windows?

    Sorry - it'll never have Scid's docking feature. Just too many niggles.

    Here's a windows snapshot which includes the new graph capabilities, undo+redo, and better search/game-browser-ply co-ordination. To install - both "scid.gui" and "scid.exe" should overwrite the previous files.

    Hmm, well if you ever do then let me know, I use Scid mainly for databases and it is an absolute pain to switch between windows.

    Yes ... it can be a pain, but 's a problem with many multi windowed apps, unless they're initially designed as a single window. SCID's docked windows arent bad, but it detracts from it's reliability and focus issues occasionally affect things like comments not getting stored and on ossasion a crashing engine or toplevel can crash the whole thing and it will refuse to restart.

    To help out, pressing the 'Tab' key in Scid vs. PC main window raises all subwindows, and there is also an autoiconify/autoraise feature which i think is enabled by default.

    Coding a bit of FICS stuff. One can now observe multiple other games, and play one at the same time.

    Unhappy Didn't install on Ubuntu 11.04 Linux

    Hello Stevenaaus,
    Firstly thanks for doing this.I have been looking for this type of thing for a long time and would love to use it as my main chess database program.Unfortunately as the headline states it didn't install for me.I have TCL/Tk 8.5 installed but it said

    src/tkscid.h:56:17: fatal error: tcl.h: No such file or directory

    during the "make install" command

    Also why don't you automate the installation of TCL/Tk by putting the relevant commands in the makefile?

    I think you have to install the tcl, tk and xorg development packages. I don't use ubuntu, but the command is probably
    sudo apt-get tcl-devel tk-devel xorg-devel
    Then re-run configure, make, and make install
    (EDIT: or is it sudo apt-get install tcl-devel tk-devel xorg-devel)

    Also why don't you automate the installation of TCL/Tk by putting the relevant commands in the makefile?
    Each different distro of linux has it's own packaging system, and it's not feasible to handle package installation from the makefile.

    Smile Working well on Ubuntu Linux

    Thanks,it installed and is working well now!

    (EDIT:The commands you gave are incorrect,I installed the packages via synaptic package manager which is easier for a dope like myself.)
