Install Gywach with ubuntu

One way to install is to covert the rpm’s to deb packages then install the deb packages. Here is how-to
First install alien

sudo apt-get install alien

then download the rpm packages to Desktop

Gyach-Enhanced-pYVoiceChat-1.0.7-1-i586.rpm
Gyach-Enhanced-Encryption-Plugins-0.2-1.i586.rpm
Gyach-Enhanced-Media-Package-0.2-1.i586.rpm
Gyach-Enhanced-XMMS-Plugin-0.4-1.i586.rpm

Then change directory to Desktop

sudo alien -d Gyach-Enhanced-pYVoiceChat-1.0.7-1.i586.rpm Gyach-Enhanced-Encryption-Plugins-0.2-1.i586.rpm Gyach-Enhanced-Media-Package-0.2-1.i586.rpm Gyach-Enhanced-XMMS-Plugin-0.4-1.i586.rpm

then install packages

sudo dpkg -i gyach-enhanced-pyvoicechat_1.0.7-2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i gyach-enhanced-encryption-plugins_0.2-2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i gyach-enhanced-media-package_0.2-2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i gyach-enhanced-xmms-plugin_0.4-2_i386.deb

if there is an error about missing library libexpat.so.0
cd /usr/lib
sudo ln -s libexpat.so libexpat.so.0

Thi shas the advantage that you haven’t deleted anything from your system. If the version of libexpat changes, you don’t have to do anything. libexpat.so.1 itself is a symbolic link to /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.2 So you should be able to rely on Ubuntu taking care of things.
