I've always found the chess program included with Xubuntu to be a disaster. If you want 3D, you could try PyChess (sudo aptitude install pychess). If 3D still doesn't work, you might not have your graphics card properly set up.

cardinals_fan,

Thanks just installed that PyChess game and played a game.
It's nice.

No problem. Please mark this thread as solved (Thread Tools -> Mark as Solved).

If you have the cash, Shredder Chess (http://www.shredderchess.com/) is crazy good. The online version is fun in hard mode.
