    ICQ for Linux..

    Can anyone recommend me a good ICQ emulator that works on Linux? I tried Licq and GnomeICU or whatever, Gaim, but none of them work. They all make me send the freaking message through the server, and no one recieves it for a week or so. ICQlite works, but that's a major pain, as it grabs focus each time a message is sent... and it's slow.

    Which Linux you're on? Redhat? Mandrake? Which one? I've been Mandrake before and there's a built in ICQ program on it (I can't really remember it's name, since it's been a long long time I left Linux) that worked perfectly fine...
    It's unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.

    Mandrake. Although none of the ICQ's that came with it work.

    I thought that was a Linux Programming board.
