QNEXT Instant Messenger

Postby foxtersfella » Sun Aug 10, 2008 0:37

Hi All,

I am new to Linux and wondered whether QNEXT INSTANT MESSENGER is going to be available from Spritz Package manager......or can anyone provide easy instructions on how I need to install it?

It is a tar.bz2 extension file.

Thanks

Lee

If you cannot find a package in the Entropy repository (http://packages.sabayonlinux.org/) then you can make a request for it (viewtopic.php?f=76&t=13891). I'm not sure whether the SL developers would want to provide it, though, as it has a proprietary licence. But you can ask. Alternatively, if you are desperate, have you tried the instructions on the Qnext site for installing the Linux version of Qnext? (http://www.qnext.com/download_linux.php)

Hi Fitzcarraldo,

Thanks for your assistance with the links. I did try the installation instructions on the download page but it wouldn't work unfortunately.

I have made a package request so hopefully it will be made available via Spritz.

Thanks again,

Lee

What exactly did you do? It seems to install OK for me when I followed the instructions on the Qnext Web site, although I clicked on Cancel when a pop-up window asked permission to connect to the Qnext server, as I don't want to install the application.

Code: Select all
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~ $ pwd
/home/fitzcarraldo
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~ $ mkdir qnext
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~ $ cd ./qnext
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~/qnext $ cp ~/Desktop/qnextsetup.tar.bz2 .
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~/qnext $ bunzip2 qnextsetup.tar.bz2
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~/qnext $ tar -xf qnextsetup.tar
tar: A lone zero block at 247613
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~/qnext $ cd qnext
fitzcarraldo@localhost ~/qnext/qnext $ ./qnext
