Chess Position Trainer allows you to do leaf node evaluation and then minimax the results after that. Is it possible to install Chess Position Trainer on Linux? (I tried under mine, but couldn't), or is there any other software for Linux that can do minimax nodes?
Sorry, no. Chess Position Trainer only runs on Windows 7, 8, and 10.
See the system requirements here.
You could consider a virtual machine running Windows on a Linux host, but it will not run natively.
There are oodles of programs for linux. Take your choice.
Stockfish runs on linux. And many other places too. It is open source so you can modify the code to do what you want.
