    thank you very much.

    i hope it will be included into next versions of ubuntu by default

    • Good to know that it helped.
      Unfortunately it will not be included by default in Ubuntu 10.10.

  • Thank you! This is the best DC++ client I have found for Linux.
    As the traditional LinuxDcpp is really bad.
