Trillian for Linux: Early access for Pro customers!

Good news, Linux fans: we’ve been quietly building Trillian for your favorite operating system and today we’re ready to release an early access version into the wild for Trillian Pro customers only. Download it here while you read the announcement! 
 

What is Trillian for Linux?
Trillian for Linux represents the next leap forward for Cerulean Studios and desktop messaging applications on Linux. We’ve rolled up our sleeves and dived into the world of GTK+, building the purest and most native version of Trillian that we can – this is not just a gussied up web browser control! – with an initial eye on strong suport for Ubuntu. Trillian for Linux boasts a beautiful contact list with searching, tabbed message windows with inline image support, emoticons, screen capture!, a rich activity history viewer, file transfers, group chats, integration with Ubuntu’s messaging menu and much more. 
 

Why an early access program for Pro customers only?
The honest reason is pretty straightforward: we’ve spent years of time and money building Trillian for Linux so far, starting as early as 2011, and we need to ensure that enough of you are serious about supporting the project financially for us to continue with it. Here’s your chance to help us prove that a healthy and vibrant market for Linux applications exists for smaller software shops like Cerulean: go Pro and support our efforts on Linux
 

Will Trillian for Linux be free upon final release?
Yes. The early access program will eventually end and the product will be free for everyone to use and enjoy, so if you’re unable to purchase Pro today you can rest assured that Trillian for Linux will make its way to you in the future. 
 

What’s next?
We plan to follow up in the coming weeks with an additional behind-the-scenes look at what went into building Trilian for Linux: we think you’ll be surprised how much effort goes into a project like this and how many minor details we fret about behind the scenes. Thank you for your support!

    Please support Fedora/RHEL/Cent, PCLinuxOS, Mageia, open SUSE. At the very least. Being able to get the source and compile would be a much better way to handle this

    great news, thanks!

  4. originalme8 Says:

    Yes! So excited!

    Great job guys!

  5. RansomOfThulcandra Says:

    This is great news.

    Currently it doesn’t look like it can be installed on Debian Wheezy (stable).

    It depends on the following which appear to be available in Debian testing but not in stable:
    libc6 (>= 2.15)
    libglibmm-2.4-1c2a (>= 2.33.13)
    libpulse0 (>= 1:0.99.1)

    It depends on the following which don’t appear to be available in testing or stable; I presume these are ubuntu-specific packages:
    libmessaging-menu0 (>= 12.10.2)
    libunity9 (>= 3.4.6)

    I look forward to being able to try it!

  6. Thomas Says:

    Yeah! Thank you so much! Best news this year!

  7. Tlin Says:

    Thank you very much!

    I am already on a lifetime membership. Is there another way to donate for this project?

  8. Robert Says:

    an RPM or source for RHEL / CentOS / Scientific

  9. danilo Says:

    Thank you! Work’s great on ubuntustudio 13.04 :)

  10. Chris Says:

    Fantastic news! However RPM (fedora) is a must.

    Any ideas ?

  12. Dacen Says:

    So this SteamOS thing did not only stear up something at AMD/Nvidia, but at Cerulean Studios as well. I am impressed

  13. 13xforever Says:

    Yeah, seems like dependencies are quite strict, especially with libglibmm.

  14. kwk Says:

    We are working on an RPM and a DEB with no unity/messaging-menu requirements. Stay tuned :)

    @13xforever: Why is this too strict for you?

    @Tlin: You can just have your friends use us :) and buy them a Pro copy.

  15. Heather Says:

    libraries: libzip.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory even when I got it installed, why?

  16. Chris Says:

    @kwk: Is there an eta on the rpm?

  17. Nestar Says:

    Alright guys, that’s it. I’m buying a lifetime membership!

    Only question is: Will it be Open Source? If not then please make sure you guys have a universal install package such as .sh or .run so that any Linux distro can have all the Trillian goodness. :)

  18. st.abbat Says:

    YES! thx gays!

  19. jeff Says:

    please don’t spend too much time on this for the .01% market share of linux.

  20. kwk Says:

    @heather: Can you apt-get install libzip2?

    @chris: Hoping in the next few days.

    @nestar: Not open source, but we plan on having an RPM and a tar.gz in the future to hopefully make it work with most major distros.

  21. Laura Says:

    My big question is now: Does Skype also work with this version? Because if it does I would consider to buy it now even though I’m a student with only few money…

  22. Tlin Says:

    @lauran As far as I know Microsoft is going to stop the support for the Skype-API on December 31st. This means there won’t be any support for Skype after that date either in Trillian nor any other program (Pitgin e.g.) as soon as they change the API. https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA214/what-is-the-desktop-api

  23. montuos Says:

    As an old Trillian user (started with version 0.74) who had to give it up when switching to Linux, you have made me very happy indeed! Looking forward to the DEB release! :)

  24. kwk Says:

    @Laura: No skype support at this time, sorry.

    @Montuos: We have the DEB release right now, try it out.

  25. Eric Y. Theriault Says:

    Thanks! My Kubuntu 13.10 install appears to be regularly segfaulting; do you want a copy of the core dump or any other information? Or any debugging info or things you want me to try?

  27. Chris W. Says:

    Hmm, tried this on Ubuntu 13.10 which is now at release candidate quality. Unfortunately I cant seem to login to anything except astra. All other networks I cant click connect *sadface* after entering a password. Confirmed all dependencies met and aside from a few presentation framework errors in console I don’t see any indication as to why it doesn’t work.

  28. Schreck Says:

    I love you guys! Thank you so much! There is less and less reason for me to use Windows at all. Is there any way to buy “gift accounts” for my friends, since I – unfortunately – have already paid for pro. And i need to pay more for that awesome Linux version ;-)

  29. Spuds Says:

    running unstable..

  30. kwk Says:

    @Spuds: We auto-detect the bit from the user agent. Would you mind letting me know what your user agent is so that I can fix up our script to give you the right version? For now, you can just download by hand from here: http://cerulean.cachenetworks.com/trillian-for-linux-v1.0.0.1-amd64.deb

  31. kwk Says:

    @Eric: Would love to see the core dump. You can email it to us at linux-support@ceruleanstudios.com. We will try to figure out what is causing it.

  32. Endrigo Says:

    Great notice, fantastic. I’m Ubuntu user and disfruted my new Trillian in Linux.

  33. blackisle Says:

    Good to see Trillian continuing to promote unified messaging across platforms!
    Hope the IRC plugin is on the roadmap (I know it is well served with linux clients but it is great having everything under one app!), maybe the year of the Linux Desktop is upon us…… ;)
    - haud yer wheesht jeff, linux is far more pervasive than you might think!

  34. JamesIsIn Says:

    Please create a deb repository so that we may use that for keeping up to date rather than having to manually download installers each time. Thanks for working on this. I so rarely use Windows any more; it will be nice to have Trillian back for full-time use.

  35. Etam Says:

    You can easily set up http://openbuildservice.org/ instance and build packages for many GNU/Linux distributions.

  36. M.C. Says:

    IMHO, since this is proprietary software, the best way to handle this is to build a package for Ubuntu if you really want to, and provide a simple tarball with the files so other distros can package it easily.

  37. Punkey Says:

    Can’t install the program, Ubuntu Software Center kicks out this error:

    Dependency is not satisfiable: libglibmm-2.4-1c2a (>=2.33.13)

  38. Daniel Says:

    “The honest reason is pretty straightforward: we’ve spent years of time and money building Trillian for Linux so far, starting as early as 2011, and we need to ensure that enough of you are serious about supporting the project financially for us to continue with it. Here’s your chance to help us prove that a healthy and vibrant market for Linux applications exists for smaller software shops like Cerulean: go Pro and support our efforts on Linux! ”
    ——————-
    It is hard when there is:
    1) no demo version for test
    2) no support for my OpenSUSE
    3) no certainty that Linux version will be fully finished
    4) possibility for shut down next year due “Linux small market”

  39. Spuds Says:

    @kwk I was using lynx, it sent “Lynx/2.8.8dev.16 libwww-FM/2.14 SSL-MM/1.4.1 GNUTLS/2.12.23″

    seems this is an ubuntu-specific deb, as unavailable dependancies in (unstable) Debian.

    long-term, may be worht adding a simple line to add to sources.list to auto-update/install with standard tools

  40. kugel Says:

    Thank you so much. Working flawlessly on Xubuntu 13.10 beta1

  41. Chris L Says:

    Are you going to abandon this project like you did the Mac OS X one?

  42. Joel "Jaykul" Bennett Says:

    So … Trillian for Linux … but still no OTR

  43. Punkey Says:

    Updated from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 13.04, it works now. Probably should put that up that it doesn’t work with the LTS release.

  44. Adam Says:

    So excited about this release! It’s already more reliable than Empathy and more modern than Pidgin. Any plans on integrating the contact list with the Contacts app so that we can link avatars etc (like with the Mac 2.0 release)?

  45. oiaohm Says:

    Consider a Linux Steam Store version. Steam does not only take games.

  46. Heather Says:

    @kwk no, I’m using Gentoo, trying to get -bin ebuild.

  47. bernard Says:

    What a disgrace that Trillian came out for Linux before Windows RT/Windows Phone.

  48. tuxd3v Says:

    disgrace??

    Are you serious about that ?

    Windows RT is a joke…

    Why its a disgrace?Well I thought that it was a disgrace that it come to windows Desktop OS before Linux…

    In Linux Mint Debian Edition…debian testing, its not so good… :S
    seems that I need libmessaging-menu0 which doesn’t exist in repos… only:
    libmessageviewer0
    libmessagelist4
    libmessagecore4
    indicator-messages
    indicator-messages-gtk2

    well i installed indicator-messages indicator-messages-gtk2, but no way…

    thanks for this guys ;)

    regards
    tuxd3v

  49. Erik Says:

    If it isn’t open-source then I’m just going to keep truckin’ with Pidgin.

  50. praisegenki Says:

    <3<3<3<3
    I waited on this occasion for purchasing pro

  51. Alex Says:

    That’s so great! THANK YOU! :)

  52. YangombiUmpakati Says:

    great guys!!! I will be transitioning to linux in future so I’m glad, I will be able to use trilli there too ^^ thx for the effort.

    also don’t worry about windows phone (that has time) and forget about windows RT, that’s just stupid joke and hopefully the system will die eventually

  53. Joe Says:

    Great news. Trill was one of the reasons I booted into windows.

  54. sabret00the Says:

    Well, I got the two things I wanted and so bought Pro. Sadly I can’t connect to any services though. (Ubuntu 13.10)

  55. kwk Says:

    @blackisle: IRC is on the roadmap.

    @JamesIsIn: A respository for updating is also something we are planning on doing.

    @M.C.: We will have a tarball, but want to work out some ubuntu specific dependencies first. Should be coming in a few days.

    @spuds: Ok, we will make it work with lynx and other browsers. Thanks

    @Daniel: OpenSUSE and rpm based installation is coming soon. If you would like to wait for the final free version, you can as well.

    @Chris L: OSX is not abandoned. We have a 2.0 version in beta right now here: http://help.trillian.im/discussions/mac/2230-trillian-20-for-mac-build-68

  56. Bob Says:

    Windows RT is a joke only to those that don’t have a clue.

    If you think it’s a joke then you are already biased, have never used it and have no idea of where the future of the OS and tablets is going. You don’t have any idea of the bigger picture.

    Trillian for Linux sounds great! As a Pro member already, I’m happy to try it out.

    I am still frustrated that there is no Windows Phone 8 version. Will there be a Ubuntu Phone version? http://www.ubuntu.com/phone

    :-)

  57. sabret00the Says:

    It hates AIM!

  58. sabret00the Says:

    It doesn’t appear to want to log me in to other accounts automatically. I have to manually attempt to connect to all my AIM, MSNs, Yahoo’s, etc.

  59. kwk Says:

    @sabret00the: There is a bug with auto-connect, we will investigate that and fix it up for you. Does this mean AIM works now for you or do you have another issue?

  60. sabret00the Says:

    @kwk Still can’t get AIM to connect, in fact it just causes the client to crash completely.

  61. kwk Says:

    @sabret00the: If you would like to send us the core dump it creates at linux-support@ceruleanstudios.com, we can try to investigate it.

  62. Hannibal Says:

    only with unity? NO THANKS !!! unity is a big no no

  63. sebabal Says:

    Awesome news guys. Thanks for supporting linux.

  64. lestaticon Says:

    Had over 300 days left on my pro membership but extended it another year in support of this effort!

  65. kwk Says:

    @Hannibal: Not ‘only with unity’, just ‘initially with unity’. Stay tuned.

  66. LOL GTK Says:

    Ubuntu is switching away from GTK to Qt and you build a GTK application with focus on Ubuntu? Either target your GTK app to Fedora (the only distro left that GTK-exclusive by default) or throw GTK away in favor of Qt as everybody else does (LXDE, OpenShot,… also switched from GTK to Qt).

  67. Scott G Says:

    I will definitely use this (and presumably contribute); however, I only use RHEL and Fedora (and OpenSUSE occaisionally).

  68. Eric C Says:

    This is very exciting news. Hoping it works with Linux Mint. Glad to see that you did this though. Keep up the good work.

  69. Gregorio Espadas Says:

    Please, use Qt, not GTK !

  70. Matthias R. Koch Says:

    Not working on LinuxMint :(

  71. kwk Says:

    @Matthias: Works on Mint over here, would you mind emailing us at linux-support@ceruleanstudios.com, so that we can try to track it down?

  72. 13xforever Says:

    @kwk my distro (elementaryOS) is based on Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS) and there’s no libglibmm-2.33. 2.32 is the latest available.

  73. kwk Says:

    @13xforever: We are looking at if we can downgrade our version requirement for libglibmm.

  74. Emmerich Says:

    RPM for x64 and i686 for RosaLinux or Mageia please!

  75. Mike Frett Says:

    I need a question answered please. The amount of software to access a Webcam in Yahoo, for Linux, is atrocious. And the ones available are inadequate. Does Trillian have proper Yahoo Webcam support? Because that’s what I desperately need to talk to my family overseas who don’t use Skype. Yahoo is extremely popular in Asia.

  76. Heather Says:

  77. Anthony Wilson Says:

    WOW!!! and WOOHOO!! I will be setting up a new install of Ubuntu this weekend and will test out Trillian for Linux! Thank you for taking the time to build Trillian for Linux, this was one of the major reason why I had to go back to Windows, besides 98% of my clients use Windows. This a welcome surprise.

  91. Nestar Says:

    The libglibmm-2.4-1c2a dependency is a big kick in the butt for Debian or Ubuntu LTS users. You should really focus on fixing that one.

  92. kwk Says:

    @Mike Frett: It does not have yahoo webcam at this time, sorry.

    @Heather: Make sure you downloaded the right bit (we have 32 and 64 bit versions). libseda is a file that we provide, so there is a chance you have the wrong deb installation.

    @All: We are working on the dependency issues.

  93. Jon Says:

    When you say “group chat” do you mean for the Trillian network only or do you mean for all supported networks? I have yet to see a modern Trillian client that supports group chat on XMPP (though I have not tried the Windows client) and I bought a lifetime pro license so that I could specifically use Trillian with group chat and hopefully use the cloud features to take my group chat between devices. Would just like some clarification on this please.

  94. kwk Says:

    @Jon: At the moment on linux we support Trillian network only group chats, but we will investigate xmpp/other networks in the upcoming builds. Our windows client supports xmpp group chats pretty well and our latest mac version just included them.

  95. yay Says:

    Excellent news! Rest assured that if I now buy lifetime pro, it’ll be because of this announcement.

  96. indrora Says:

    Not yet a Trillian Pro subscriber (considering it after reading this) but I’m worried about the usage of Unity – I don’t use a Debian derivative! I’m on ArchLinux primarily and sure I can tear the package apart and install it by hand but that’s hard.

    If y’all (Cerulean) take the same tack that Dropbox did, I’ll be all over it: Stick to what’s everywhere and give anyone a way to install it. Dropbox has a proprietary client — that’s their secret sauce. They also have a simple tarball anyone can download and say “go!” and it just Does The Right Thing(tm).

  101. Daniel H Says:

    Well, I have it installed on my ubuntu and it runs. And that’s about it. It doesn’t automatically connect to anything but astra and I can find no config menu to manually enable the other chat protocols. Am I missing something?

    @kwk how do I get a core dump in order to email and get AIM fixed? I emailed and asked but got no response.

    Hi all,
    the latest build (10) costantly hang whenever I try to save a file received via Skype. It let me open the save as dialog box and then hang! All the times!

    I’m a Pro user and i use KDE. Is there any chance to have a Qt version, without deprecated and monstrous GTK+?

    How do you configure the proxy?
    I tried it at work and the interface freeze at login.

    tcp 0 1 laptop.lo:47454 74.201.34.2:3158 SYN_SENT 13756/trillian

    Our office block all outgoing traffic that aren’t HTTP or HTTPS.
    In windows, Trillian use the global proxy settings. How do I configure this in this Linux version?

    Works great on Mint x64 :-) I like it! Add IRC support and I’ll love it :-D

  113. Jason Says:

    Awesome! I’ll download tomorrow at work and try it out.

  114. Jason Says:

    Please support Fedora/RHEL/CentOS.

  115. Grant Says:

    Thank you very much! Seems to be working great on Ubuntu 13.10 Good job!

    >we plan on having … a tar.gz
    Excellent!
    Need amd64-only package (no x86 support at all on some system).

  117. Fluxxdog Says:

    Definitely glad to see roadwork on this being done. I think a lot of people will be happier when we get a better look, but I’ll be happy to have bugs worked out first. Honestly though, a repository would help you push beta tests quicker. It’s still a bit dismaying that 1.0.0.1 is still the only available after all this time. But, I’m sure you have your dev cycle planned out.

    Thank you for not making me rely on the web version anymore..

  118. kwk Says:

    @sabret00the: I wrote you back, we can try to track it down.

    @Antiokh: Right now its just gtk, sorry.

    @Philppe: Proxy support for the initial Trillian connection is coming soon.

    @Fluxxdog: Sorry for the delay in the next build. We have plans on doing the repositories so that we can continually update, just taking us a little longer than I had hoped to get the next build ready. It’s almost there.

  119. Francois Says:

    Great news! Have been waiting for this for quite some time now. But like other people – I’m using ArchLinux and the package requirements (libunity ??) are kind of a showstopper. Hope next builds will have less requirements :)

    [...] Trillian for Linux — WTF!? [...]

  121. 3vi1 Says:

    Where is the detailed feature run-down for the Linux version? Is the feature list exactly in parity with the Windows version? It would be great to have a matrix showing how it compares with Empathy, Kopete, Pidgin, Jitsi, etc.

    I want to support developers that support Linux, but I imagine I’m not the only one reluctant to spend money for something sight-unseen in this category of apps where Linux already has a *lot* of options.

    Works but crashes on Mint 15 MATE x86 / Ubuntu 13.04 if you try to connect to anything other than Facebook or Yahoo, unsatisfied dependency on Mint 13 MATE LTS x64 / Ubuntu 12.04 libglibmm…. Thanks so much to the Cerulean Studios’ team for giving Linux a try!!
