I currently use xchat as my default IRC program, but I don't really like GUIs, I prefer TUIs, is there an IRC program out there which has a TUI rather than a GUI? I am running Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.18.

  • @Seth: Probably, although it is probably asking a different question though they are similar enough for this question to be closed as a duplicate of it. – user364819 Oct 27 '15 at 15:36

Why not Weechat or Irssi.

Install Weechat:

sudo apt-get install weechat

enter image description here

Install Irssi:

sudo apt-get install irssi

enter image description here

They are especially nice if you use a tiling wm like i3, I have heard.

And you can find more of them here: Coolest looking terminal IRC client

  • irssi in a screen session is my goto communication method. Never miss anything! – tpg2114 Oct 25 '15 at 15:27
