    Trouble with Gyachi in Antix

    Hey, I recently started using my old notebook which has Antix installed again. Gyachi used to work perfectly and I am not sure what happened to it since I rarely touched it since then and I've never taken it online during that period. Though when I started it up again Everything looks okay but when I receive a message it shows them typing but never shows the message. They get mine fine so its just me. I've tried removing Gyachi and installing again though I noticed it kept my prefrences so it wasn't completely gone. I tried switching through the drop menu that lists the servers. Switched modes to msgr 8. Any idea what's up with it? Also I noticed when I was trying to use it and I had Muschlient open throgh Wine it wouldn't let me shift focus off Gyachi. I could click Mushclient and it moved it on top but everything I typed appears in Gyachi instead.

    I've tried removing Gyachi
    How exactly. With Synaptic or apt-get in terminal?

    I noticed it kept my prefrences
    Which means you did not completely remove gyachi configuration files.

    I don't use Yahoo messenger. I don't use Wine either. So I won't be of much help with Mushclient. Which I do not use either.

    EDIT: Also. Give details on how you installed gyachi. A posted readout of

    inxi -F
    will also help me to find out what version of AntiX you are running also

    Yeah, I used "apt-get remove gyachi" to remove it. Synaptic seems to be busted as it doesn't ever load. I don't really like Synaptic much anyways.

    I used "apt-get remove gyachi"
    to do a clean removal of gyachi with all configuratiuon files removed do

    apt-get --purge remove gyachi
    apt-get autoremove

    apt-get clean

    apt-get update
    I'm guessing you downloaded a .deb for gyachi and installed it with dpkg -i command because

    @biker:~$ apt-cache policy gyachi
    N: Unable to locate package gyachi
    shows it is not in my

    @biker:~$ inxi -r

    Post your /etc/apt/sources.list with the
    inxi -r
    command. I want to see if you are running Lenny or stable or testing. Also. Do you run as a rolling release like I do, or just leave well enough alone. Anticapitalista runs AntiX 6.5 on one of his boxes with a 2.6.37 Liqourix kernel. He uses smxi command (I use it also)
    to keep AntiX 6.5 current running Debian Wheezy.

    I was going to run a dist-upgrade today on this laptop but decided I did not want to break some things.

    antiX-forum - View topic - apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade IBM A22m AntiX 8.5

    Another useful thing you can post is
    lsb_release -a
    cat /etc/issue
    Mine on this laptop for reference

    @biker:~$ cat /etc/issue
    Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid \n \l
    @biker:~$ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:	Debian
    Description:	Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)
    Release:	unstable
    Codename:	sid
    Above info will let me know how you are running AntiX.

    So, after doing autoremove It turns out out I needed libgtkhtml2-0 and cant find it in any of the repos. I got gyachi through apt-get actually.
