Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you how to install Smuxi 0.8.11 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.
Smuxi is a multi-platform IRC client, working on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
From the official site:
Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application (engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This way, the connection to IRC can be kept up even when all frontends have been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as example for this architecture.
To install Smuxi 0.8.11 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint, do this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:meebey/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install smuxi
