(There is an old post about this from 2006 but the thread seems to have been closed so somebody had to do this)

It's a very promising IM application. Here are its features:


Available Features:

Contact List Management
Personalized content (Display Pictures, Personal Messages, Custom Emoticons)
Indirect File Transfers (MSN)
Direct File Transfers (Jabber wo/NAT only)
MSN and Jabber (+GTalk) Session Support
MSN communication with Yahoo contacts
MSN over HTTP protocol
Adium Theme Support
GStreamer Audio Support
Group Chat
Offline Messaging (MSN)
Roaming Profiles (MSN)

In-Progress Features:

IRC Session Support
Conversation History Tracking
Direct File Transfers (MSN, Jabber w/NAT, IRC)
Audio/Video Conversations
NAT Traversal through uPNP Routers

Planned Features:

AIM/ICQ and Yahoo Session Support
Integration with music players like Banshee, Rhythmbox, etc.
Integration with the GNOME desktop, nautilus, etc.


First of all I think it's good news for us, Ubuntu users. Why? I think there are two reasons why Pidgin comes preinstalled with Ubuntu:
- Supports multiprotocol,
- "Interacts well with GNOME"

Since developers of Galaxium are trying to make it interact well with GNOME then only problem is being multiprotocol. For now Galaxium supports MSN and Jabber (and Gtalk obviously). But they are trying to add ICQ, AIM, Yahoo and IRC support. What is amazing is that they are actually working on a/v support.

Only down side -for me- is that it's a .NET application. But since Ubuntu includes Tomboy in the live cd why not include this one?

Oh and I forgot, here's the website: http://code.google.com/p/galaxium/

That looks pretty cool. I like the layout. I might just try that.

For future reference, here's how you install it:

Open up your sources list and add the appropriate repository


gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

For Gutsy:


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu gutsy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu gutsy main

For Hardy:


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu hardy main

then update and install:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install galaxium

I have heard about this. There are two IM projects that have interested me. First its Galaxium and another one is GNOME's Empathy. Both are somewhat in the same stage of development.

I installed it, started it and watched how it failed to connect to my msn account.

Then I got a scare from the sounds it produces (sound was turned up high).

It grayed out, and all of the sudden it was connected.

The program looks pretty good.

But I think I'll stay with "emesene".

I second that. But it's shaping to be the IM application every noob is looking for, that's why I'm keeping it.

Same exact thing happened here. If they get that darn webcam support going, and fix those issues it seems to have with MSN, then this could definitely replace Pidgin for me (even though I really like Pidgin)

Wow ... that project still exists. I checked them out back in '06 when their page was still hosted at bountysource.com. The project seemed to be slowly dieing back then - the only thing active were spam bots on the forum.

But this looks pretty neat especially if the manage to get multi-protocol (what pidgin has) plus the special per protocol feature richness (what pidgin never seems to get).

/edit:

Justed tested the new version. Sadly sending and recieving MSN messages seems to be as unstable as 2 years ago. Messages still randomly "vanish" without you or the other contact knowing. And it crashes quite a bit.

I'm not sure how tough it would be for them to just use the libpurple protocols and just work on their own gui (including the use of adium themes), and then just create a/v support and send it back to purple.

That idea makes more sense to me.

Hi, I work on Galaxium and wrote large parts of the current MSN protocol code. I'm sorry to hear it didn't work very well for you, maybe you could file a bug report (http://code.google.com/p/galaxium/issues/entry) to help us figure out why it failed/crashed? If you do so then the output from the debug window or from a terminal would be helpful to attach to the report.

The repository for Galaxium changed earlier today, it's now located at https://launchpad.net/~galaxium/+archive

Basically, if you use Ubuntu hardy, you need to add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/galaxium/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/galaxium/ubuntu hardy main

Or you can add it in synaptic through Settings->Repositories->Third Party Software. You then click add and enter one of the lines from above, click OK, then click add again for the other line.

Finally apt-get update or reload in synaptic and install the galaxium-svn package.

(If you use gutsy just replace hardy with gutsy above)

Just want to say that Galaxium Messenger is a great program! Hope you keep improving on it. I replaced Emesene and Pidgin with it. :guitar:

What are its advantages over Pidgin?

burty89

What are its advantages over Pidgin?

Essentially, whilst we are working to support multiple protocols, we are also working to support the extra bits such as nudges, winks, fast transfers, audio/video etc that Pidgin never seems to deliver.

Also each protocol is free to extend the GUI or even replace parts of it such as its chat area & contact list should it need to present things differently, although we do keep most of it common to provide some consistency.

The GUI is also different in a number of ways you can probably see best by looking at some screenshots (http://code.google.com/p/galaxium/wiki/Screenshots).

There's also the fact that I think we have the best implementation of the MSN P2P protocol (responsible for display pics/winks/file transfers etc), but I guess I'm biased having written it :)

billgoldberg

The one that most people care about, decent avatar support.

moehahah

Note: Galaxium got a lot of updates, and it runs pretty good now.

I'm using it on my desktop all the time.

There is a small glitch that bugs me, sometimes the text stops appearing and you have to type blind.

Mateo
June 22nd, 2008, 02:31 AM
ok, thanks for the information. i'm happy with pidgin as it seems that the advantages are not stuff that is important to me (don't use the msn protocol and don't care about avatars). good luck nonetheless.

I've just recently installed this myself after finding aMSN to be a bit of a pain. One thing I'm interested to know is how/if at all, can I get my "Now Playing" tracks to appear as they did in the bad-old-days of msn?

At present I'm using Banshee as my media player...if that's of any consequence...

I currently use the svn version which already has the in-progress features integrated and it is a real nice client.

Just do:


sudo apt-get install galaxium-svn

to install the svn version. But remember: It's svn. So don't wonder if what you get is b0rked. Don't complain then but contribute bug reports!

****. It's sucking. And I really like this.

When I install galaxium and try and use it (from the menu and terminal) it doesn't work. So I purged that and tried galaxium-svn, but instead since I chose to automatically log in one time it stays at the log in screen and everything is grayed out so I can't choose anything.

So, help please?

I tried it. It's very nice and fast, but also is quite hard in use - its non intuitive and lacks of many essential features gajim has. History, for example. After try it and switch back to gajim I felt myself like flying.

Install the galaxium-svn version. It adds support for GTalk, Jabber and IRC + has an addin for this (currently playing) functionality.

Is there a settings folder or something for Galaxium?

Because I purged Galaxium a couple times and galaxium doesn't work at all, but galaxium-svn works but it won't show the buddy list. Freezes at logging in because I chose to log in automatically.

Any ideas?

Go to Adium Xtras and download any theme you want, then copy the .zip (all the themes I've downloaded from http://www.adiumxtras.com are in .zip format) into your /home/user/.config/Galaxium/Themes/AdiumMessageStyles

Restart Galaxium and there you go! :D

Also, for emoticon themes, the path is /home/user/.config/Galaxium/Themes/AdiumEmoticons

To post the sources list:


1. Open a terminal
2. Type gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
3. Copy the contents of that file
4. Paste them here

The reason for this would be that, because Apt cannot find the package, it stands to reason that you may have not added the correct repository to your sources list. If we see your sources list, we can see if that is, in fact, the case.

You don't need to use sudo and you must leave a space between gedit and /etc.

You can copy and paste the line below to your terminal:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Alternatively, you can navigate with nautilus (file browser), and open the file. No need to use the terminal.

Is Galaxium still any good, I just never hear from it again. Can't find any karmic PPA's either.

Otherwise, and alternative?

emesene is a nice alternative.
kopete beats all I think.
galaxium is great though, didn't try to install it on karmic though.

i was a fan of galaxium for a long time til today.
Galaxium used to be the only program that can show my yahoo contacts on my hotmail account. But now that pidgin can do that too, i switched over to pidgin.
Pidgin's also light weight program compared to a few others that i used.

For future reference, here's how you install it:

Open up your sources list and add the appropriate repository


gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

For Gutsy:


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu gutsy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu gutsy main

For Hardy:


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/paulburton89/ubuntu hardy main

then update and install:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install galaxium

Hi,

After adding the hardy, when i try to update i get:


W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net hardy Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 3E0219167854A3A9

Update fails and hence i cannot install it. Anyways I can skip the installation if someone can tell me if this IM supports file transfers in GTalk or not ?

Thanks.

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

This happends also on hardy or gutsy deb sources.
