Hmmm, it's a development version. Not for public use.

the problem is with libraries: libsodium.so.4, see

Code: [Select]
[holmes@manjaro ~]$ tox
tox: error while loading shared libraries: libsodium.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[holmes@manjaro ~]$

Hi holmes,

Yep, I did a link :

Code: [Select]
[pat@x32 lxqt]$ ls -l /usr/lib/libsodium.so.4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 30.06.2014 12:44 /usr/lib/libsodium.so.4 -> libsodium.so.10.0.0*

but it's not perfect. I can't find the "copy" button, or I dont know how to use this application.  :)

To try ?

Seems to need some menu-editing to get to show it up. That Utox overlay has a nice touch.

Would be nice to have Utox/venom in the repos and/or promote them in our ISOS :) although still beta, tox is starting to deserve wider promotion :)

Tox actually supports a lot of things but we have to wait for the clients to implement all the features.
https://wiki.tox.im/Client Here you can see an overview of the currently available clients and their supported features at the bottom.

Tox sounds good, and I might try it soon.
Have you guys tried Telegram https://telegram.org ? I think Telegram is a great messenger that is multi-platform.
