No, you need a chess engine - see the installation guide for details.
As a base you can point it to an existing engine from the 'Players / Engine' menu option, ( e.g. gnuchess in the /usr/games folder ).
Or, you can install one as follows:
- sudo apt-get install stockfish
- sudo apt-get install crafty
- sudo apt-get install fruit
etc. , depending on your requirements.
These are instructions for Ubuntu, for Fedora you would replace 'apt-get' with 'yum' in the above commands.
Some of these engines are not available for all platforms, so you might have to delve into the instructions
for them to install the one you want. I find that stockfish and gnuchess installs on most distros; crafty and
fruit are available for Ubuntu; Komodo runs on 64-bit Linux distros, by downloading and copying the executable
file to the/usr/games folder (and ensuring it is executable).
If you have stockfish installed ( non-Raspberry versions ) or fruit ( Raspberry version), then StingRay should work 'straight out the box', as they are defaults when first run.
