Gcompris chat client

Hi guys

I’m not sure if this is something anyone can help me with here it could be a problem with gcompris but I’ve searched online and I can’t find anything

Recently me and my Grand-Daughter (Chloe) have been using the chat client on gcompris, I thought it would be a fun way to help her with writing and spelling and she loves it, I have gcompris installed on my PC and Chloe has it installed on hers, both PC’s run Peppermint 4 and are on the same LAN, the problem is that quite often messages I send to her doesn’t pass over to her PC and visa versa sometimes times they pass over first time but most times it takes 2 or 3 attempts and it spoils the whole thing then she loses interest and the whole point of the exercise is lost

I understand this is most likely a problem with gcompris but if anyone can suggest anything I can try to fix this it would be much appreciated

Many thanks


Have you considered installing iptux on both PC’s ?

it’s in the repos … and takes ZERO configuration, it just detects other copies running on the LAN


Thanks Mark

Never heard of iptux anyway I’ll give it a shot and let you know how we get on

Many thanks
