    Help with Nicotine Plus Soulseek client


    Hello all. I am having massive trouble with Nicotine Plus. I have learned to use apt-get to install Nicotine on my chromebook. I do not have an intel graphics card, but an ARM chip. Now NicotinePlus will open, but I cannot connect downloads and when I try to browse other user's files, nothing happens... I CAN however, browse my own files, which has me thinking maybe it's a firewall issue? Also I have read about having the proper ports open, and my 2234 port is closed. I'm not sure how to open it and I am using my mobile tethering through metropcs for wifi, so I don't think there is any router to tamper with... This stuff is pretty beyond me, I mean I still feel way lost, but if I could get an idea of where to go from here, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time.

    nicotine had its last update in 2013.
    probably dead.
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/nicotine-plus/

    however, soulseek offers a linux client:
    Download | Soulseek
    (NOT open source afaiu)

    searching my distro's repositories, i get more for 'soulseek':
    Code:
    newsoul 0.2.1-1
        Museek+, a daemon/server based Soulseek client, resurrected.
    
    newsoul-git 142.119b876-1
        Museek+, a daemon/server based Soulseek client, resurrected.
    
    nicotine-plus-git r1824.86583b9-1

    Hey nihili, thanks for posting. I have tried searching soulseek with apt-cache, but only nicotine comes up.. Is it because I'm on xfce4?

    you forgot to mention what distro you're using.
    if it's debian stable, that's a bit old by now.
    maybe one of the apps in question is in backports, so you can enable backports and install it.

    if not, it's off to github, download the source, roll up your sleeves and compile!
