EKG ("Eksperymentalny Klient Gadu-Gadu") is an open source
Gadu-Gadu client for UNIX systems. Gadu-Gadu is an instant
messaging program, very popular in Poland.
EKG features include:
- irssi-like ncurses interface with mouse support
- sending and receiving files
- voice conversations
- launching shell commands on certain events
- reading input from pipe
- Python scripting support
- speech synthesis (using an external program)
- encryption support
Please note that the program is not internationalized and all messages are in
Polish (although the commands are in English).
This package contains the program built with just the (text) ncurses user
interface. If you want to use the GTK+ graphical interface, install the
ekg-gtk package as well.
