No logro instalar el libmimic que me pide para usar la webcam. ¿hay respuesta en el soporte?

Ralphx21 said...

No puedo creerlo, lo hizo un Argentino que no respeta su idioma y lo publica en Ingles. Que cosa..y peor aun...no hay instalador .Deb para Ubuntu 9.04 (Linux Mint 7 Gloria).
En el.Tar pide dependencia de libmime...no se como soucionarlo.

¿Alguien me ayuda?

Ralphx21 por que no te metes la cabeza en el culo?, para ver si te entra

Ignacio said...

@Ralph21: con esa actitud de mierda dudo que alguien te ayude

emesene te banco a muerte, aguante que esté en inglés y no en este idioma de mierda..
ay, que geek soy, linux mint.

@Ralphx21: el texto está copiado y pegado del foro donde lo posteó (en inglés) el usuario C10uD, si querés te lo postea en italiano para respetar su idioma y no entendemos nada, dale?

El post, así como el blog, está en inglés porque así más gente puede entenderlo e interesarse, el emesene no es sólo para hispanohablantes, la idea es que lo use todo el mundo y el inglés es mucho más fácil que el español.

El .deb? ni buscaste información, porque hay un repositorio para agregar e instalar en ubuntu 9.04 y lo vienen diciendo en el foro desde hace meses, ni ganas de pasarte el link. Encima ni leiste los comentarios anteriores, se necesita gente que haga paquetes, no se hacen solos.

Very great job! See the screenshots and they are so fabulous. Thank you very much.

By the way, I am also interested in the window theme (window border and gtk control) used for these screenshots. What is its name and could you please give some hints about where I can find this?

Thanks again.

I can't release why an application like emesene couldn't be compiled also for osx... for macusers there are only two instant messenger for msn: messenger for mac and amsn... I hope in new version of those, but a mac emesene is more interesting in particolar with a full supported video chat

luismarianoguerra said...

@salad: you should talk to nicolaide he took the screenshots, you can find him on the forum

@zelante 89: we need people with macs to do that package, I don't have one and I don't know anyone who has one (macs are really expensive in argentina)

cortexiphan said...

I hope, you release the 1.5 version for windows soon.
Are you planning to make ebuilds for Gentoo? That would be great!!!

luismarianoguerra said...

@cortexiphan: there is people working ont the windows build, no idea about gentoo, you should ask for it to someone at the forum (or make it yourself :)

comu said...

¡Muy bueno! Habeis sabido mejorar un programa que ya de por si era casi perfecto...

Gracias!
La version 1.5 es una maravilla.
Probada en 9.04 y version emesene "1.5+r1485":
La webcam funciona perfectamente, los guiños también.
Las nuevas opciones también.
Buen trabajo.
Ahora el emesene para mi es innegablemente el mejor cliente msn que hay.

Unico detalle: la notificacion de ubuntu sale en ingles.

Buen trabajo y gracias de nuevo.

Gabriel said...

che loco está una masa, el emesene suena demoledor y la actualización te pega piñas en la boca. Si quieren instalarlo en ubuntu 8.04 -de la forma fiaca- bajanse el deb del 9.04 y dos debs mas (del dpkg y otro más que no me acuerdo, lo tira al querer instalar con el dpkg) y le meten el clásico:

sudo dpkg -i emesenenomeacuerdo.deb

Ustedes me entienden (sinó lo explico mejor cheeee).
