|I recently started using CenterICQ as a Jabber client, mainly because [[imcom||http://wiki.jabberfr.org/ImCom]] has a bug in its presence reporting code (basically it never sets the user as ‘online’), and it is a bit inconvenient when chatting to several contacts at once.|
The interface is slightly disturbing at first, but not for long.
The biggest problem of CenterICQ is its total lack of documentation. Here I’ll record the result of stuff I had to look into the code to find.
- Keys can be changed in ~/.centericq/keybindings
- First key to change (for me) was \scx to
for send_message. I see little point in multiple line messages.
- Contrary to what the documentation says, not all commands are in that file. bind editor \scn next_chat to jump from one active chat window to the next one. (There is also a prev_chat command, which I have not yet mapped).
Next I’ll look into remapping some more keys: I want to use j and k to move in the contact list.
