IRC chat not working

Postby sirio81 » Fri Nov 13, 2015 7:14 am

Hallo, I tried to connect to http://lxde.org/irc/ but I get the error 'Closing Link: ircip4.mibbit.com (Banned)'.

I'm running iceweasel 38.4.0 on debian 8 64bit.

Perhaps the channel that you are looking for is #lxde.

When you open the link you have no possibility of choosing a channel but only a nick name.

Use webchat, https://webchat.oftc.net/
Choose your user name and select #lxde for the channel. The # must precede the channel name.

...or better even, install xchat on your computer.
