i am unable to reopen the solved topic and hence this separate post.
Update: Just now Ferdi stopped working. I thought this was something to do with my updates and system specific. Then i got a mail from AUR about the same issue.
The search for alternate is on.
Ferdi is dead. From what I understand their lead dev has nuked the entire project which includes it’s github, website and twitter.
Try tangram. Open source and looks like a good alternative…unlike rambox.
Might be possible to setup as a webapp using Gnome Web. I know it works for a lot of services minus Steam Chat which I can’t get to work in any browser anymore for voice chat.
You can setup a webapp shortcut that launches in gnome web with all the chats in different tabs. Might be possible with Firefox too with some hackery considering they dropped web app support
their website is redirecting to rambox
man, it works likes charm. thanks a lot.
how to remove ferdi. The below does not work
$ yay -Rdnss ferdi
error: target not found: ferdi
It should be either
ah, what a dummy i am. got it.
seems ferdi has got a hard fork minus the unwanted old owner. i got notified by AUR mailing list on this. it is called Ferdium
Show some love.
