Hey,

I am trying to install Licq in my virtualbox with Ubuntu.

I have managed to install gloox, Licq and the jabber plugin and fixed all the dependencies according the instructions. How do i run it now? Is there a GUI where I can try to run it?


I also tried to install the plugin called qt4-gui, but when I try the "make" command I get a lot of errors like


usercodec.h:29:3: error: ‘Q_OBJECT’ does not name a type
usercodec.h:38:10: error: ‘encoding_t’ does not name a type
usercodec.cpp:27:1: error: ‘encoding_t’ in ‘class LicqQtGui::UserCodec’ does not name a type


Can you please help me get this running?

Sure!

Yes, there is definitely a GUI plugin and it's qt4-gui that you've
already tried to build.

Unfortunately, there is a build error in Licq 1.8.1. If you apply the
following patch you should be able to build it:

https://github.com/licq-im/licq/commit/f288367c758de16fc013c6f4c9851ca85813eb59


You can specify on the command line which plugin(s) to use, but if you
don't specify anything it will find and start the GUI automatically if
it is installed.


I don't know the available Ubuntu versions, but I know that Licq 1.8.1
is available in at least somewhere so depending on which version you are
running you might be able to just install it without having to built it
yourself. (Just remember to install the package licq-plugin-qt4 to get
the GUI as well.)

Hey Anders,

Thanks for your email.

I am afraid that patch does not work either.
usercodec.h:29:3: error: ‘Q_GADGET’ does not name a type

usercodec.h:38:10: error: ‘encoding_t’ does not name a type
usercodec.cpp:27:1: error: ‘encoding_t’ in ‘class LicqQtGui::UserCodec’ does not name a type
usercodec.cpp: In static member function ‘static QString LicqQtGui::UserCodec::nameForEncoding(int)

Am i doing something wrong?
