Digsby on Linux: Revisited

This is a followup to an my older post: Digsby: No love shown for linux where I was trying to run Digsby's window's client on Linux.

Trick was to get gdiplus.dll. Here's the link to gdiplus.dll
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-f … ml?gdiplus

$ cp gdiplus.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

Now install digsby using wine
$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Digsby/digsby.exe

It still doesn't run that smoothly but it should sustain your interest till their native linux client comes out.

Nice Desktop! Looks like your running KDE4 which looks like it has progressed a lot since I last used it. My message box didn't work and the Facebook integration did not look as good as yours. Glad it worked for you!
