Surprise: We already have our own IRC… join us !!

Hi 😀

At 4 months of age, a new service came out ... our forum, and today ... that we are 9 months old, we announce another new service: IRC FromLinux

Why an IRC? ...

We have a lot to talk about folks, a lot of Linux... SWL, Arch, Debian, KDE, Xfce, etc ... doubts, questions, we want to have an answer to our questions quickly, the second, and then immediately to ask another question, etc. We do not want to wait for minutes to clarify a question in the forum or right here on the blog, so ... that's where it comes in our IRC, helps more dynamically, quickly.

But… IRC support there are several, «I do not contribute anything new" no? 😀

Here in this blog we have created almost a community, we share opinions, we laugh, we make jokes among ourselves, and we have also learned a lot from each other.

Yes, there are several IRCs ... but in how many of these can we find all the users here? … Those users with whom we share jokes and advice every day?

I think that is the strong point of our IRC, it is like the «living room» of our house, where friends get together and we talk about what we like the most, laugh, have fun, and always… always, learning

This IRC would not have been possible without the help of [| HuGO |] who spent several hours helping us to configure the IRC, really a THOUSAND thanks to him for all the help he has given us.

Here the information to connect:


Port: 6667

SSL port: 6697

We have done some tutorials to connect from Android or from the same Firefox (through a plugin):

Obviously, any doubt or question will be answered 🙂

    I have a question: why is the blog anniversary today if the welcome article is from July 9?

    1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      Because July 4 (pure coincidence…) is when we register the domain as such. And FromLinux it is not only the blog, it is more ... that's why I take the account for the 4th of July 😀

      1.    Manual of the Source said

        Coincidence? Nah, you're not fooling me, it was all a strategy to divert attention from the celebrations of that country that loves Cubans so much.

    2.    elav <° Linux said

      Exact. The blog was officially released on July 9, but the project actually went online on July 4 😀

      1.    Manual of the Source said

        Mmm, and another thing: why leads nowhere? : S

        1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

          It is that the WWW we have thought for the Portal, however ... yes true, this is a bug, I fix it shortly and I put it to redirect to : )

      2.    tavo said

    Video-tutorial to connect Pidgin to IRC from FromLinux


  16.   azavenom said

    someone know how to connect with empathy in irc from linux?

  17.   Hyuuga_Neji said

    I already tried from the pidgin but it does not connect to the irc so then I try with the Xchat….

  18.   yukiteru said

    A suggestion, put a link to download the SSL certificate and be able to use thin clients such as Weechat or Irssi, it is impossible for me to connect without reaching into the configuration file, so that option would be welcome. By the way, excellent site elav and KZKG.

  19.   obux said

    I was finally able to connect….

    greetings from Chile..

  20.   jos1727 said

    Is it still available today? From three clients irc tells me not found.

    1.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      It has been offline for some time, we moved servers and I have not had time to reinstall the service, I apologize for the delay.
