Meebo chat client

September 18, 2011 — BarryK
Linuxcbon posted about a typo in /usr/local/bin/meeboview, which I fixed.

'meeboview' is just a simple script that opens with site in the default web browser:

But, it was back in Puppy 3.0.1 that we actually used this script, with a menu entry under the "Internet" category. (though, I don't know how we used it, as it has had a typo all these years)

There is really no reason (that I know of) why we should not have this menu entry by default in Puppy, as it gives us a multi-protocol chat client for free (no size added to Puppy). So, I grabbed the /usr/share/applications/meebo-chat.desktop file out of Puppy 3.0.1. Now in Woof.

The supposed typo was the url, but perhaps that wasn't a typo a couple of years ago, perhaps that was the actual url? Because, I seem to remember it worked back then.

"There are plenty of cloud apps @ that fill similar functions for many types of apps. Disclaimer: the cloud is a great way to help corporations further monetize your identity. (meebo knows who you talk to, what you talk about, when you talk about it,...)
