Linux distributions

LostIRC is distributed in various formats for Linux distributions, like Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Gentoo, and others. Please take a look in your package manager if you can install it from there.

If you don't have it or the version is too old you can compile it yourself (see below).

After installation LostIRC is located in "Application -> Network -> LostIRC" or you can start it with lostirc in a terminal.

Source code

If your distribution don't offer a precompiled package, download the source package or use the SVN version (see link at the top).

Beside a C++ compiler you need the following packages for compiling:

After downloading the source code per SVN or download and extraction of the source archive just open a terminal, go to the extracted folder and compile the program with

$ ./autogen.sh # SVN only
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install

You need to be root for make install.

If your system offers the package checkinstall you may use this instead of make install so that the package manager will recognize the new version.
