The Lounge (IRC Client) on DietPi

Hey guys,
I’d love to run “The Lounge” on my DietPi, but I’m 75% a noob and if errors happen I’m often instantly lost. This time I installed Nodes.js from dietpi-software and “npg install -g thelounge”. Got some errors, didn’t know what to do. Now I’m kinda proud I just rolled back without braking anything, but still, I’d love to have The Lounge on my DietPi.
Any help? Or do you want to add it as optimised software?

Anyway: DietPi ist the best! Thanks a lot for this great OS!!!

Could you paste the exact error messages you face when trying to install with npm?

Also did you try it with the official deb package:

cd /tmp
dpkg -i thelounge_3.1.1-1_all.deb
apt-get -f install
rm thelounge_3.1.1-1_all.deb

That worked, thanks a lot. I had to install nodes.js from dietpi-software first, everything working fine now.

Hello, I’ve a problem with the installation of TheLounge: I downloaded the latest release, but after executing
dpkg -i thelounge_4.2.0_all.deb; I get this error:

I have already installed nodejs in advance via dietpi-software.

Would reinstalling nodejs fix it?

Run the following to have dependencies automatically installed:

apt install ./thelounge_4.2.0_all.deb

I did; this is the output:

Is this normal? Should I execute apt --fix-broken install? Sorry, I’m a beginner :wink:

yes that would be an option to run apt --fix-broken install

That seemsed to work. However, I still face some errors. Trying to handle them myself, but I can access TheLounge via my browser.
