Title: Gizmo5
Post by: j.a.watson on January 30, 2009, 05:10:43 am
Would it be possible to have the Gizmo5 (http://www.gizmo5.com (http://www.gizmo5.com)) IM/Text/VoIP program added to the repositories?

I have recently installed VL 8.0 RC4 on an HP 2133 Mini-Note, and I love it.  The only package that I regularly use that I haven't been able to install is Gizmo.  I tried installing from their binary tarball, and failed.

Thanks.

I think gizmo is proprietary software, so I don't know whether we can distribute it...
The way this was done with skype was to set up a package that downloads the skype binaries from the website and puts them in the right location.

Maybe the same can be done with gizmo...
