Yeah, I normally use gaim, but hey.  You don't need to move a deb file
anywhere - they take care of the file structure internally.  And,
Dapper+ you should even be able to just double-click the file instead
of the comman - either way should work.  For IRC, I use irssi
personally, but that's a command line client - for new users I usually
recommend XChat, available via the 'xchat' package in the universe
component of the repository, installable via Synaptic.
Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
