Install IRC chat client, The Quassel in Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04

Quassel IRC, or Quassel, is a graphical, distributed, cross-platform IRC client, introduced in 2008.[1] It is released under the GNU General Public License for Linux and Unix-like operating systems, OS X, and Microsoft Windows. Since the release of Kubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) Quassel is Kubuntu’s default IRC client.[2][3] Quassel uses the Qt application framework.

Since it might not be installable via “apt-get” or “software center”, we can add “ppa”, update our local packages repositories and install.


$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mamarley/quassel
$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install quassel


$ sudo apt-get remove quassel
