gaim-2.0.0beta3 with RendezVous and Meanwhile support

Posted by chantra on 12th June 2006

I've recompiled gaim-2.0.0beta3 in order to support rendezvous (aka bonjour) and meanwhile (aka sametime) protocols.

Gaim-meanwhile used to be an extension to gaim and is now part of gaim's core. Bonjour/RendezVous was developped during he summer of code and is now part of gaim since version 2.0.0.


Well, since debuntu now has its own debs repository, the best way to install gaim 2.0.0beta3 with bonjour and meanwhile supports is to simply add the repository to your sources.list. Refer to the debs repository in order to check how to achieve this and then apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade.

Well, hope you like it.

gaim-libnotify-0.9 deb package for ubuntu dapper

Posted by chantra on 28th April 2006

This plugin adds a libnotify interface to gaim, enabling popups much like guifications. It has some configuration options, to show popups when a buddy signs on, on new messages and on new conversations only.

libnotify and notify-daemon aren't stable yet, so it's all very experimental.

Mounting a fuse Filesystem from /etc/fstab

Posted by chantra on 27th April 2006

Earlier on, I showed how-to mount a remote filesystem with fuse, using a remote partition accessible by SSH. Since version version 2.4.0, it is possible to use fstab to mount those kind of partition.

The current version installed on ubuntu dapper is fuse-utils-2.4.2. Unfortunately, /sbin/mount.fuse is not included in the package. I've recompiled it, submitted to revu, hopefully it is going to make its way up to the main repository. In the meanwhile you can get it from here.
