[SOLVED] HexChat woes

Post by markfilipak » Wed Sep 11, 2019 1:36 am

Is there a way to combine 'irc://irc.freenode.net/ffmpeg' with '/msg NickServ identify ...mypassword...' so I can get on #ffmpeg in one shot?

Autojoin doesn't work for me. Why? I don't know.

'irc://irc.freenode.net/ffmpeg' is the link that opens a dialog in which I select HexChat.

'/msg NickServ identify ...mypassword...' is a command I have to enter, otherwise nothing happens.

Once I've opened HexChat and entered the command above, then I still have ot join a channel even though it's marked Autojoin.

I have searched and searched for a solution and cannot find joy.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks Jeremy. I got on #hexchat irc and asked. It turns out that HexChat doesn't prompt new users to register with NIckServ and then enter their registered password. So I was doing a registration manually each time. Now that I've selected the proper protocol and password, HexChat is operating automatically without having to run a browser. I've even got it autojoining 4 channels. Problem solved.
