How To Install Chatty 0.7.3 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Chatty is a Twitch chat client, but does not have the complexity of an IRC client. The latest version available is Chatty 0.7.3, which has been recently released, coming with new features, changes and bug-fixes.

New features:

  • Added customizable hotkeys feature allowing you to add/remove/change hotkeys
    in the settings (Global Hotkeys Windows only)
  • Added Stream Chat dialog (only regular messages, optional message timeout to
    make them disappear after some time, mainly for testing right now)
  • Added support for global mods
  • Added $chan parameter to Custom Commands
  • Log to file: Added setting to customize timestamp (via setting commands)

Changes:

  • Changed inputbox font to prevent bug where fallback fonts wouldn’t work
    properly in JTextPane
  • Changed default for “Restore dialogs” setting to “Restore dialogs from last
    session” (only if you start from fresh settings)
  • Backup: Increased setting backup count to 5 backups
  • Changed staff usermode symbol to & (text symbol, not the badge)
  • Added scaling to emotes if the image is too big, set maximum size to 100×50
  • Improved setting commands (added add/remove commands for String lists, save
    default for lists/maps), improved help for setting commands
  • Added “set:” commandline parameter to set any setting that can be set with the
    /set command
  • Changed to new BTTV emotes API
  • Improved URL parsing a bit
  • Updated help

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed Simple Title menu setting not being updated correctly
  • Set foreground color of Viewer History based on the current foreground color
    of the dialog, so it fits the LAF
  • Set Notification foreground color to black, in case a LAF uses another color
    that doesn’t go well with the yellow background (Notification colors should be
    customizable eventually)
