I don’t play chess, and would like to eliminate it from my librem5.

Hmm - “should be installed on every librem5” sounds a bit ominous, so I’m holding off for now. If anyone has knowledge on this, I’m all ears. (Maybe any info is worth an entry in the Tips&Tricks wiki.) I’m considering just removing /usr/share/applications/org.gnome.Chess.desktop. Note that the pureos store does offer to remove it without saying anything else would go too, so I’m not clear on what it’s doing differently.
