    How to use QQ(OICQ) in Ubuntu

    OICQ which is called QQ is a internet chat client.
    It is a windows based software.
    There are more than 10 millions of people use it
    everyday. It is a good news that you can use it in
    Ubuntu.
    It is quite simple , there are two ways to get installation
    on ur box.One is install a gaim plugin ,the other is
    install a Linux based software developed by a Chinese
    student in Java.
    I recommend the first way. what you need to do is
    go to download a plugin called

    openQ

    then ,
    Code:
    dpkg -i openq_0.3.1-2_i386.deb
    restart you gaim you will find a new protocol option in your list.
    you need not set up any login server and port.

    But the pity is it seems do not support proxy. So people
    who use proxy to indirect connect to internet may
    not use it. Anyway , hope everyone enjoy it .

    Now I can use Msn messenger , Yahoo messenger and QQ
    all in one Gaim. it is bloody awkward to use three clients
    to do it in windows.

    Ubuntu rocks!!

    You can use Gaim also in Windows, if what you want is to avoid running one app for protocol.
    Actually, for Windows, I've found better solutions than Gaim, as Miranda-IM

    Re: How to use QQ(OICQ) in Ubuntu

    I've tried the 0.3.1 deb package from openq's sf site. But I've been experiencing alot of crashes from GAIM. And also 0.3.2 is the latest version but there isn't a deb package for it.

    So ... I end up compiling the 0.3.2 version for it and made a deb package for it .. hehe ...

    anyway I found the self compiled version is much more stable. GAIM doesn't crash anymore.

    Re: How to use QQ(OICQ) in Ubuntu

    Please go to the website openq-0.3.2

    download the source code.

    Then unpack it with the code
    Code:
    tar -zxvf openq-0.3.2.tar.gz
    install the plugin by steps

    Code:
    sudo ./configure
    
    make
    
    make install
    Restart GAIM. Good luck.

    Re: How to use QQ(OICQ) in Ubuntu

    checking for gaim... Package gaim was not found in the pkg-config search path. P erhaps you should add the directory containing `gaim.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'gaim' found
    configure: error: Library requirements (gaim) not met; consider adjusting the PK G_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.


    What can I do? Who can tell me?

    Re: How to use QQ(OICQ) in Ubuntu

    I'm getting the same error as EPHEMERA in ubuntu 6.06.

    I've used the find command to look all over my drive for gaim.pc- and have not found it.

    Has anyone else seen this problem before? And what can be done to get around this problem?

    Re: How to use QQ(OICQ) in Ubuntu

    FYI:

    install the dev packages for gaim

    sudo apt-get install gaim-dev

    and for gtk2

    sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev

    Worked okay for me.
