So I am trying to use the program SCID, which I installed via the command line. However, I was messing with the settings when I booted the program up from the GUI and I messed it ALL up. To where none of the windows were showing. So, I uninstalled through the Software section in Zorin, then used the command line to install using the commandSudo apt-get install scidFor a while I could go into the folder in the command line and sudo into the program and it would display the GUI program for me. Just so were on the same page SCID is an indexing program for Chess. It allows you to install an Engine to evaluate chess moves and it spits out the best solution to the given position.So, for a while going through the CLI worked, and Sudoing into scid from the folder it was installed in by default worked. But now here recently it will not work. Instead I am met with the following response.

This immediately makes me wonder if the settings you set were stored in your home configuration directory. This would not be removed by a simple package removal (Uninstall) and upon reinstall, would still be viewable by the app.Perhaps check your /.config directory for anything related to SCID and sudo apt remove --purge scid. Once done clean the apt cache and remove any installed dependencies, just to reduce any chance of a previous corrupted download

First things first though. We need to get ourselves some opening codes. Scid vs PC comes with some, but for a more comprehensive list we have to install a small file. For your convenience I have put it here: Right click on it and save it in your chess folder. Next you will need to to go Options -> Load ECO File and point the dialog box to your file. Finally you want to save your options via Options -> Save Options so that this file loads every time Scid vs PC loads.

This will concatenate all the pgn files in that directory into one large one. In Scid vs PC you can now load this mygames.pgn PGN file and it will work. However, it quickly becomes unwieldy when you start having millions of games. It can take minutes to load your database, which is not particularly handy. Luckily, included in your download, there is a tool to convert a pgn file to the native Scid database format called pgnscid
