Werdz has created a redbrick version of qwebirc. This can be cloned from bitbucket
The following packages need to be installed
- sun-java6-jdk or sun-java6-jdr (some java interpreter)
Qwebirc runs with its own system user and group called qwebirc with home directory
/opt/redbrick-qwebirc which will need to be created.
Clone HG Rep
Clone the redbrick version of qwebirc from redbrick's mercurial repository to it's home directory
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/werdz/redbrick-qwebirc
It needs to be compiled once it has been cloned. There is a compile script in the root of redbrick-qwebirc
There is a config.py.example file in the root directory, it's well documented and prefilled for redbrick setup. When you're happy copy/rename to config.py.
Qwebirc doesn't like being started from outside its directory, presumably it uses relative paths to load stuff, so the chdir directive is important to make the upstart script work.
Upstart script /etc/init/webchat.conf
