So many people have recommended Proteus as an alternative IM to Adium in my comments here that I thought I must be missing something special. Well as true as that may be, for now it seems it will remain that way :)
I installed it tonight and it simply doesn’t load :) I dragged it to my Applications folder and launched it. The icon appears, bounces a few times and then disappears. No Error message, no clues at all.
When I try and search on their forum for solutions, I get the message “Error: Unable to search for posts.” but from the front page I don’t see anyone else who is having this issue. It is not a universal binary, but that shouldn’t matter.
Not a great start :) Does anyone have it working successfully on a MacBook Pro?
