I am very green using Linux (SUSE 10 user) and I want to upgrade my IRC client. Gaim is my current client, but it is very basic. Can you recommend a good irc chat client and include other foundational software needed to run the client...

Thanks for your help

I use xchat. I don't think you need anything else except maybe the
xchat-perl module if you want to run perl scripts.

Hi there,

i know this is a lil older, but I have started using openSuse 10.2 a while ago and havent really switched completely yet due to the time it takes me to adjust to suse :thumbsup:. I want to use an irc chat and have heard xchat is good, but does anyone know how i can implement the script function used in mirc with xchat? As in my autojoins and stuff. Can you make like a file that it looks up like the script.ini in mirc or is it all manual setups? if so, where do i find a tut on this?

Thanks a lot in advance

Johannes

Xchat uses PERL plug-ins (scripts) and other programming
languages such as Ruby and Python. You can find plenty of them here:
http://xchat.org/cgi-bin/disp.pl

Just be careful of what you load, IRC scripts can contain backdoors.

I'm a big fan of XChat because I can use it on all of my machines independent of operating system (Windows / Linux / BSD / OS X).

I don't believe I had to install anything like Perl or Python other than the base system before installing XChat (no real system requirements).

It's really nice if you use many different operating systems and like a consistent look and feel across the board.

You don't need extras just to run XChat, but if you are going to use
autojoin scripts and toys in the chat room you will need a Perl or Python plugin.

Hi Raw, I just had a look at the site and am a bit overwhelmed at the mass of stuff that is on that site. Do you know which one is to be used to:

*auto connect to several servers
*auto join multiple channels
*auto identify to the servers

Also do I need to have such an extra script to do the silly things such as:

Slapping
.Slap Silly German!:[b][color=red]*Grinler slaps $$1 around a bit with a silly German
[/b][/color]

Thanks in advance.

Johannes

autojoin and auto itent to one server is an Xchat "default" feature.

you will need scripts for the other things you mentioned though, as well as perl
