GNU XBoard

https://www.gnu.org/software/xboard/
Graphical chessboard.

XBoard is a graphical chessboard for the X Window System. It can serve as a user interface for chess engines such as Fairy Max, Sjeng, Baby, Hachu or GNU Chess, for the Internet Chess Server, or for electronic mail correspondence chess. It supports all major forms of chess, such as international chess, xiangqi (Chinese chess), shogi (Japanese chess) and Makruk, in addition to many minor variants such as Losers Chess, Crazyhouse, Chess960 and Capablanca Chess.

XBoard presents a fully interactive graphical interface and can load and save games in the Portable Game Notation. It can also be used by itself as viewer for stored chess games.
