Getting Started


Requires Ruby and GTK2 and libglade bindings for it. Get them:

  • [http://ruby-gnome2.sourceforge.jp/ sources]

  • Debian: apt-get install libglade2-ruby You also need 'libpty-ruby' as debian splits up the ruby stdlib and 'ruby1.8-dev' for scw

  • Gentoo: emerge ruby-libglade2

RIRC now uses the Scw::View for displaying all chats. This widget, being designed specifically for this purpose functions much better then the Textview and requires no hacks to make it behave. [http://iki.fi/zuh/scw/ Scw homepage]

Follow the instructions and download and install scw and the ruby-bindings.

Then checkout the code:

svn co http://svn.irssi.org/repos/rirc/trunk rirc

Getting Started

To run rirc, cd to the folder you checked out into, and

ruby rirc.rb

A connection dialog window should appear with the ability to select a connection method and settings for that method.

Rirc's 'local' method will connect using the icecapd binary on the current machine, the 'SSH' method allows you to connect to irssi2 on a remote machine, Net::SSH is probably not too good right now, and inetd lets you connect to icecap over *inetd, all methods will start irssi2 if there is no instance running.

Configure the connection as you wish and hit connect.

You can now use the presence manager to create/edit/delete networks/gateways/presences and connect to a presence. The presence manager will pop up automatically if you have no connected presences.

Joining a channel is fairly obvious:

/join #icecap

For a list of other commands there is an inbuilt /help command.
