licq - multi-protocol instant messaging client (base files)… more info»
LICQ v1.6.1 An ICQ clone written in C and C++ using a plugin system to allow for many possible interfaces. See the webpage (http://www.licq.org) for more information. Licq implements messages (online and offline), urls, chat, full file transfer, gui configuration (with the qt4-gui plugin), history as well as a number of other features. LICENSE This program is licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL, a copy of which you should have received with this package. INSTALLATION: Please see ../INSTALL. Licq has been compiled and run successfully on the following systems at one point (note current versions may no longer compile without a bit of tweaking): Linux/amd64 Linux/x86 Linux/Alpha Linux/PPC FreeBSD/i386 AIX/RS6000 NetBSD/mk68000 OpenBSD/sparc Sun3/mk68000 Solaris/x86 Unixware Solaris/sparc CONFIGURATION: Configuration is done through the file ~/.licq/licq.conf, which contains .ini style options. The contact list is stored in users.conf. Each users info is stored as a simple text file called users/<uin>.Licq. Again, the options are pretty obvious. You can add/remove/edit a user inside the gui, or by editing the conf files. The History file is the file where the user history is stored... You can specify a filename for each user, or you can put one of the following keywords in users/<uin>.Licq: history = none :keep no history file for this user history = default :makes the history file history/<uin>.Licq.history USE: Type licq -h for commandline help. Using licq is fairly straight-forward. Licq itself is merely a daemon designed to run various plugin interfaces. We have written an advanced gui in qt (qt4-gui) which should be used as the default plugin. Once you have compiled and installed Licq, unpack the plugins you wish to use into the plugins/ directory, compile them, and then install them into /usr/local/share/licq/plugins (replace /usr/local with the prefix given to configure if necessary). Then start licq with the -p option: $ licq -p qt4-gui -- ...any options to the plugin... Note the -- which tells the system to pass any options after that on to the first plugin in the list. Multiple plugins can be chained in this way: $ licq -p qt4-gui -p email-forward -- <qt4-gui options> -- <email-forward options> PROBLEMS: See the BUGS file for reports on known bugs and problems. CONTACTS: Send any questions, comments, or other complaints to firstname.lastname@example.org.
