Lol :) já estou a usar desde dia 10 prai :| era uma version que vi nos forums do Ubuntu ainda por cima era .deb por isso foi facil :)

No geral está muito melhor, mais "mariquinhas" que o outro com outros efeitos malucos e tal mas está mais agradavel :)

Tenho de experimentar melhor tudo, mas nota-se que o Google Summer Code fez grandes improves no Gaim :) ainda por cima aquele que mandava naquilo tudo foi trabalhar para o GTalk, logo esperam-se grandes coisas para o gaim :P

Estive umas 4 horas assim, depois consegui finalmente entrar....

Agora é a minha vez de não conseguir entrar no MSN através do Gaim 1.5. Alem de que ainda não consegui instalar o Gaim através do pacote tar.gz. Quando faço ./configure diz que preciso da biblioteca GTK+ 2.0 pelo menos. Eu saquei a 2.8 e quando faço ./configure para a instalar diz-me que necessita da GLIB...

Alguma forma de instalar o Gaim sem ser através de .tar.gz? Nem que seja adicionando alguns repositorios á sources.list e fazendo apt-get?

Pode ser que arranges um self extracting file....os conhecidos ficheiros .bin.

São semelhantes ao sistema de instalação do windows, só que por vezes é executado numa consola, outras vezes em modo gráfico. Instalei o java assim....(embora metesse para lá mais umas merdas...).

Fica bem :P;):)
