For the ones in Wayland, open the application menu and click "edit application" for ChessX add QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb to environmental variables in the "Application" tab. This info just in case someone doesn't know already.And TY for adding the patch @munzirtaha

I want to update the package to 1.6 but I am getting this error https://sourceforge.net/p/chessx/bugs/340/ If anyone knows the solution, let me know, please.

@binarydepth: I committed a patch to fix this till it's fixed upstream.

For the ones in KDE

Adding QCoreApplication::setAttribute(Qt::AA_DontUseNativeDialogs); in line 100 of SRC/GUI/main.cpp worked.
I downloaded the AUR package on Arch Linux and compiled with 'makepkg -s',
tested and there was the bug but
I did the change in code did 'make' on the other directory where make was (chessx/src/chessx-1.5.8/) and then 'makepkg -i' and I am now able to add engines like stockfish.

@Fobes: Of course you can. However, the correct way to handle this is in your ~/.config/pacman/makepkg.conf MAKEFLAGS="-j$(nproc)"

Some packages would fail with that flag and if you don't have enough resources, this could make your system too slow and even crash it.

Maybe consider parallelizing the build process. I have the cores so why not use them :)

@binarydepth: You need to report this upstream. It has nothing to do with packaging.

Package fails to build in a clean chroot, adding desktop-file-utils to makedepends resolves the problem.
