Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I didnt need to enter any settings in xchat before using it. I just connected to the network - bam - working :P

try something like that
Code: Select all
/server irc.spotchat.org 6667

or through ssl
Code: Select all
/server irc.spotchat.org +6697

should work (hopefully, try non-ssl first :P )

regards,

nupe.... still not working

well i've used IRC before via mIRC....

the servers i usually connect to work

ubuntu server work

and no.. this still isnt working....

* Looking up newserver
* Unknown host. Maybe you misspelled it?

and... i need help choosing the 1440x900 resolution so that i can actually use widescreen... not a streched out screen... (1440x900 is supported natively by the intel driver (82915G/GV/910GL and best resolution for my Xerox monitor.... i tried posting on this forum but it doesnt seem to be able to accept it or the ubuntu forums either...

and to LinuxMint - i like the distribution - but must change splash screens and theme.... haha i feel like i'm running Ubuntu with tweaks....
