I had used pidgin with the facebook add on until I moved to kubuntu on 18.04 and then I just forgot to install it. I had left all the computers that I had setup for businesses and other as is and just upgraded their ubuntu systems as needed. Someone had contacted me about setting up a new computer and when I installed pidgin - I find you have to build the fb add on. For reasons I wont get into here - Im looking for other options.
Anyone have anything they are using to access fb chat? I had read about empathy but most articles were older.
It’s Caprine which I like. I use it every day, it’s autostarted on both my laptop and desktop.
Working on Debian Buster Mate.
Ah, great. Thanks. Looking into that now.
This looks very nice but I do not think this is going to work. I have to installed this on a lot of different computers. I need to find a app that is click and install. But this is def very nice looking.
i haven’t used this particular program, but have used other appimages. you just double-click to run them. it takes a little more work to get them to show up in menus, but usually can be done.
in case that is of interest
There’s the .deb file on the download page. It isn’t so hard to install that on a Debian/Ubuntu like distro…
Ill look again … I did not see a deb package.
Yup… I just totally missed that. Thanks kovacslt!
