How To Install EiskaltDC++ [Ubuntu 9.10 and Ubuntu 10.04]
By on May 15th, 2010

EiskaltDC++ is a DC++ alternative to the old Linuxdcpp client. It has a rather nice interface and has a few more functions than Linuxdcpp.

EiskaltDC++ is a program for UNIX-like systems that uses the Direct Connect and ADC protocol. It is compatible with other DC clients, such as the original DC from Neomodus, DC++ and derivatives. EiskaltDC++ also interoperates with all common DC hub software.

To install EiskaltDC++ in Ubuntu 10.04 or Ubuntu 9.10, open terminal follow the folloeing steps:

Add the PPA with the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tehnick/tehnick

Update the program list with the command:

sudo apt-get update

Finally, install EiskaltDC++ with the command:

For stable version:

sudo apt-get install eiskaltdcpp

For unstable version:

sudo apt-get install eiskaltdcpp-unstable

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