Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Snakefire is a Qt Linux client for Campfire, a team collaboration tool with real time chat, popular among developers. 

Because there were no Ubuntu packages for Snakefire, WebUpd8 reader +Rael has created a PPA so you can easily install it and stay up to date with the latest releases.

Snakefire features chat alerts and reporting of what was discussed while you were away as well as a tray icon / Ubuntu appindicator (via sni-qt) so the application doesn't get in your way. You can also quickly and easily upload anything through Snakefire, via drag and drop.

Install Snakefire in Ubuntu

To install Snakefire in Ubuntu via PPA, use the following commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:rael-gc/snakefire
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install snakefire

If you're using KDE, also install snakefire-kde:
sudo apt-get install snakefire-kde

Arch Linux users can install Snakefire via AUR.

For other Linux distributions, download the latest release source from HERE. Or grab the latest code from GitHub.

thanks to Rael for the info and PPA!
