OpenVerse is an open source graphical chat system written in TCL/Tk.
Version: 8.0.7OpenVerse is an open source graphical chat system written in TCL/Tk.
Operating System: Linux
The program connects to any OpenVerse server (server and client code included).
OpenVerse is similar to other graphical chat systems like Excite Chat and Microsoft Chat with the main differences being that our OpenVerse is open source software, has no advertisements, and also runs on a variety of systems including Windows, Unix, Macintosh, and just about anything else for which you can find a copy of TCL/TK!
If you are running Red Hat or one of it's variants (Mandrake, SuSE, Kondra, etc..) we suggest you get the RPM and install with:
# rpm -Uvh OpenVerse-0.8-7.noarch.rpm
If you are running Debian stable you can either:
# dpkg -i openverse_0.8.5-1_all.deb
or, if you have the appropriate deb-src line in your sources.list:
# apt-get source -b openverse
If you have the unstable or testing branch apt-get will download our latest version in the usual way:
# apt-get install openverse
Users of other distros (Slackware, etc..) can install OpenVerse from the .tar.gz archive:
# tar -zxvf OpenVerse-0.8-7.tar.gz
# mv OpenVerse /usr/lib/OpenVerse
# ln -s /usr/lib/OpenVerse/OpenVerse.tcl /usr/bin/OpenVerse
