Missing features

Unfortunately there are things that I have not been able to get to work on Tkabber for Windows. If you have any clue on them, please comment it.

  • GPG support: Unable to compile Tclgpgme, neither on Cygwin or MinGW.
  • OSD plugin: since it requires Xosd program, it's unlikely we will ever see it working on Windows.

Building tools

Those are the tools I used to make Tkabber-Pack

  • NSIS 2.01 (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System)
  • Psi NSIS installer script by Mircea Ionut Bardac (IceRAM)
  • Cygwin, which includes CVS (Concurrent Versions System) to retrieve the files from Tkabber CVS, diff, find and other nice tools.
  • MinGW (Minimalist GNU For Windows) which includes GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) and other tools to compile the binaries and libraries.
  • Vim text editor.

Download the scripts I used to create it.
