trying to figure out what to use. i dont wanna use gaim on my fresh install cuz it relies on a ton of libs.

plus, i want something that can connect more than one medium. for windows i used trillian (http://www.trillian.cc) but i dunno anything like that for linux....

and then there's command line mode! i saw a screenshot of an IM client that was in CLI mode and supposedly was connected to msn, aim, and icq. i THINK it was called cicq. not sure.

any suggestions?

ryan

p.s. im looking for a client that's lightweight. i don't want anything that relies on gnome libs or kde libs as i wont be running either.

This has been discussed extensively in the archives. I believe there's an active thread over in Desktop right now. Locking this thread.
