Debian and derivatives (i.e. Ubuntu, Mint)

Install the following packages:
  • Debian: python2 python2-dev python3-pip python3-openssl openjdk-11-jre-headless git python3-virtualenv
  • (Ubuntu/others may have slightly different package names)

Other UNIX like operating systems, i.e. other Linux distros (bar FreeBSD)

(note you might be able to install some of these via your OS package manager!)


qwebirc has a FreeBSD port, in ports/irc/qwebirc, otherwise installation instructions are the same as for generic UNIX.


Make sure you download the packages for your version of Python -- we suggest 32-bit versions of all packages.
