qutIM manual


#1

Please point me to instructions on how to install qutIM on Haiku-os. The installation of the Debian version seems quite straightforward, but I am struggling to get ICQ working on Haiku.

Error: The remote host closed the connection.

Thanks.


#2

But you have in mind that Haiku is not Linux?


#3

Caya, but it doesn’t support ICQ.


#4

Haiku depot should have some client, did you look in there?


#5

Definitely not Linux. I’ve used BeOS from 5.0 through all the iterations of Zeta until its tearful demise. Recently, I’ve been delving into Haiku-OS and loving it. But a lot has changed and I have some learning to do.


#6

Unfortunately, I don’t have experience with qutIM. However, generally the apps throw some aditional information when started from the Terminal.

Try to start qutIM typing his name from a Terminal, and see if shows more information about the error message.

Good luck!

Thanks un_spacyar.

I couldn’t get it to work. Maybe someone who has it running – or has any IM client running ICQ on Haiku can come to our aid.

I use ICQ, Skype, Facebook chat and Steam mobile in Haiku through a XMPP server supporting these protocols as transports. Using Psi+ or Vacuum-IM as the client depending on what mood I’m in :wink:

Would be fine to have a tutorial about it on http://www.besly.de. If you have fun, do it please


#10

That’s encouraging to hear.


#11

Yes. That would be so helpful.


#12

I can surely fix a tutorial. The server I’m using is one that I have set up myself and use every day.
It will become public as soon as I iron out the last tiny issues.

But until then I can try to find other servers that has support for the same services.


#13

We appreciate your efforts, Knez.

Hi Knez,
Where might I find instructions on how to connect to my ICQ account using Psi+?
Thanks.
