  You may be interested in trying eboard [1] which is available in Debian
and mostly complies with your requirements: 
  * no AI (but can also use external chess engines if you want to play
against the computer) 
  * simple, but good appearance and theme-able (pieces and board).
  * allows direct (no server in the middle) p2p games (and also supports
playing using internet chess servers).
