    Default Chat Client for Linux?

    Is there any chat clients made to work with Linux that mirrors mIRC? Apparently mIRC doesn't work for Linux, and the SW chat hates me and refuses to work even when I install the missing plugins.

    I don't run Linux but I came across this site. It suggests running mIRC on Wine.

    I don't know mIRC, but the KDE-people claim that their irc client (ksirc) "has a lot of compatibility with mIrc for general use." ()

    To start it, press alt+F2 in KDE and enter ksirc.

    lol mia fails again.

    Xchat is decent but it's not better than mIRC, IMO. And fuck those damn gems. I want the world-accepted symbols for user modes(@,+,%)

    bitchx is a terminal client and...[stuff i won't say]. Besides, it's merged back into EPIC now anyway, and EPIC has a more recent build, from Sept 2007 versus 1.1 for BX which came out in 2004

    My vote is mirc via wine. That's what I do
