I recently registered an IRC nick. Unfortunately, I was not able to use
Jitsi for it (I used XChat to get it done), because Jitsi can only enter
chat room directly, but not communicate with the server....
(See here: https://freenode.net/faq.shtml#nicksetup)
So my first question is:
Is it possible with Jitsi to communicate with the Sever? If yes,
how? If no, why? Are there any Plans to change this?
You are correct that there is no "system chatroom" or something similar
that isn't related to a channel. There are some basic commands
available. One is '/msg <target> <message>' (IIRC I haven't needed it in
a while) that you can use to specify a target explicitly and type a
message. Though keep in mind that these commands do not work if you have
an OTR session established, as there is no (reliable) way to distinguish
between commands targeted at the other (OTR) user or general commands
which do not contain private data.
So basically, just get a window in one way or another and you can send
messages to any target (channel/nick) that you like using the command.
Also, there's a '/join <target>' command so you can also quickly join a
new channel if you like.
Furthermore, using XChat, I observed that XChat shows much nice user
information than Jitsi (this relates to cloaks ->
My second question:
Why does Jitsi only show limited information? It would be really
nice to get more meta data.
IIUC this is just a replacement "dummy" hostname. For now I have focused
on supporting the most prominent UI features of Jitsi. The extra (whois)
information for a nick/user was simply not high enough on the list. Do
you mean that this is shown in the nick list? Or just the whois information?
Using my new registered nick, each time I login, a new window pops up
and I get a message from "NickServ" telling me that I logged in.
This is quite annoying...
These are probably notices. The issue with these is that you can't
really what the "root cause" (channel join) is that triggered the bot to
send the message, as the message/notice itself is targeted to a user -
not a channel. I chose to *not* simply display the notice in the active
tab, as this could be totally unrelated. Keeping it related to the
sending user was the other options, but it does mean that a window
So far I found it quite acceptable to close the window with a hot key.
In the same chat room, a LogBot was installed recently. I also get a
message from the LogBot (in an own window), telling my that this chat is
logged. Basically, I appreciate this message, however, I think it should
be shown in the chat window itself, and not in a new window. "LogBot" is
just another participant in the chat.
This too, is quite annoying...
As you'll understand, the same answer as above applies
Is there any configuration (I did not find one) that allows me to get
rid of those windows popping up. Or is this kind of a "bug" (unfortunate
behavior of Jitsi)?
Please be a little bit more specific here. I'm assuming you mean
something other than chat windows, so which windows are you referring
to? If you are referring to chat windows, you can group chat windows in
a tabbed chat window, so then you should only have one.
