This happens only when compiz is active

In 7.10 (release) it does not work even without compiz.

When switching to 3D a dialog appears:

"Unable to enable 3D mode

Your system does not have the required software to enable 3D mode. Please contact your system administrator and ask them to install the OpenGL Python bindings and the GtkGLExt Python bindings.

You are still able to play chess in 2D without these packages."

Installed python-gtkglext1, libgtkglext1, python-opengl, python-setuptools.

Still no progress

where are you getting the package from? I have installed from the Gutsy repo, and it is version 1.0 which I have no problems with, but I also see no way to "switch to 3D".

There is no problem with it now:

compiz (gutsy backport)
glChess 2.20.3

Problem solved (however, we don't know why and how)

Congratulations, Wolf
