 Hello, and thanks for trying mcabber.

For installation instructions, have a look at the INSTALL file.

A configuration file is necessary to start mcabber.  Its name is
$HOME/.mcabber/mcabberrc (or $HOME/.mcabberrc).

A sample configuration file, "mcabberrc.example", is provided in this
directory.  Copy it and modify it to fit your needs.

You can use mcabber "-f" option to specify another configuration file.
