HowTo / Notes


You will need the winbind-Package. If you use Distros like Ubuntu and Debian you can simply install it with:

"sudo aptitude install winbind"

It's also recommended not to use animated Smilies.


1. Install winbind (ntlm_auth is required).

2. Download and launch the installer with wine.

3. Go to your QIP-Directory (should be ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ FIles/QIP)

4. Open current.cfg in your "Skins"-Directory

5. Replace the number "1" to 0

6. Start qip (e.g. wine C:\\Program\ FIles\\QIP\\qip.exe)

note: Instead of changing your (Skin-)config you can also try to start qip with the "/oldgif"-Parameter:

wine "C:\Program Files\QIP\qip.exe /oldgif"
