Looks like something Linux could really use. http://tox.im/#4
Har simple script for building on Debain systems. Rename to wtfever.sh
apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake libconfig-dev ncurses-dev cmake checkinstall git
git clone [url=git://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium.git]git://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium.git[/url]
git checkout tags/0.4.2
./configure && make check
sudo checkinstall –install –pkgname libsodium –pkgversion 0.4.2 –nodoc
git clone https://github.com/irungentoo/ProjectTox-Core.git
Update: Well, it “works” but even with the GUI (https://github.com/nurupo/ProjectTox-Qt-GUI) it’s a bit shit for a Skype replacement at this time.July 31, 2013 at 9:26 am #68646ratMember
Looking at the screenshot above and the screenshot at ProjectTox-Qt-GUI. If one is on Windows and another is on Linux….what happen? It is like the difference between Skype on Windows and the old Skype for Linux. They look completely different.July 31, 2013 at 1:09 pm #68649EvilPenguinMemberrat wrote:Looking at the screenshot above and the screenshot at ProjectTox-Qt-GUI.
