[-- Attachment #1.1.1: Type: text/plain, Size: 279 bytes --]

Hi Guix,

to use IRC

what do I have to install?

I guess: Pidgin
or are there other clients I should prefer?

what else?

Is it enough to install that client or do I have to add something in my 
config.scm?


-- 
Kind regards and thanks for help

Gottfried

I'm partial to [Hexchat], although it is on the old-school side UI-wise.

[Hexchat]: https://packages.guix.gnu.org/packages/hexchat

Installing the client is enough.

If you don't use IRC often, Guix gives the option of downloading and running Hexchat without really installing it (like any other package) - this would look like this:

```sh
guix shell hexchat gtk:bin -- hexchat
```

I had to add `gtk:bin` to make it use my selected icon theme. AFAIK it can be made unnecessary in the packaging process, but I guess it's not done here.

Hi Gottfried,

It's a matter of personal preference. I use hexchat, others use emacs, …

I also have a bouncer (znc) on my server which stays connected for me.

HTH!

I can warmly recommend Circe in Emacs. Before that, I used WeeChat and
Irssi but they are harder to configure, especially the latter.

Kind regards
Felix

You can also just go to https://web.libera.chat/, join #guix and say
"Hi" :)
