Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Hamachi is very useful for connecting to or more computers, over the internet, in a LAN network. I use it on Windows to play Age of Empires with friends, for example.
Haguichi is a graphical frontend for Hamachi 2, on Linux systems. Haguichi is open source so, there are no licence problems. The latest Haguichi 1.0.25, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:
- Improved shading of the hi-res application icon so that it looks better on dark backgrounds.
- All automatically detectable terminal applications are now called using the -e option with (except for konsole) the argument enclosed in quotes.
- Fixed crash that happened when disconnecting on quit.
- Other minor fixes, improvements and optimizations.
