How can I install and use QQ and WeChat with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS? Are there any solutions or suggestions?
You could use Franz and configure your WeChat account there.
- Messenger (Facebook)
- Steam Chat
so far with 3.0.0 and is available for Windows, Linux and OSX.
I don't know what QQ is - so can't comment on this.
One way is to install WeChat is a third-party WeChat client for Linux called electronic-wechat.
- Go to https://github.com/geeeeeeeeek/electronic-wechat/releases
- Download the file for your architecture, either
- Extract the file with
tar xvf linux-ia32.tar.gzor
tar xvf linux-x64.tar.gz
- Go to the directory with the extracted file and run
Installing electronic-wechat works for me.
sudo apt install snapd snapd-xdg-open sudo snap install electronic-wechat
I'd like to suggest Wine QQ.
First download it from ubuntukylin(it's a modified version of Ubuntu by Chinese) and extract the files.
Cd into the folder, and install all the debs using following commands:
sudo dpkg –i DEB_PACKAGE
For those who encounter dependencies unmet:
sudo apt-get -f install ./wine-qqintl_0.1.3-2_i386.deb
