Because of some Microsoft tomfoolery (ahem Windows update) my setup broke and since I had an Arch Linux USB just there I decided to install it and give it a go to get Escargot on Linux without using the web version.
- Is a GTK2 app, so it may look very out of place on most desktops.
- Doesn’t show offline contacts.
- Supports basically anything, file sharing, font customization, emotes, nudges.
- Idk if group chats work on this, I’m not on any so I can’t test it
Compiling it was a pain though, had to install Ubuntu on a VM because the package libpurple-dev needed for it doesn’t exist anymore on Arch, not even on the AUR.
If enough people are interested I’ll upload it to Google Drive or something and give instructions on how to add it.
