non bloated, ncurses, instant messenger on Linux ?
 
Hello,

Would you know a light messenger for terminal based on ncurses?


Code:

# apt-cache search instant messenger ncurses
ekg - console Gadu Gadu client for UNIX systems - ncurses UI
ekg-gtk - Gadu Gadu client for UNIX systems - GTK+ UI
ekg2 - instant messenger and IRC client for UNIX systems
ekg2-ui-ncurses - instant messenger and IRC client for UNIX systems - ncurses interface
pork - Console-based AOL Instant Messenger & IRC client
profanity - console based XMPP client

ekg is 20mb, install aspell, whatever,...
pork is not maintained


regards

many thanks. Great.

apt-cache search centerim reveals nothing, but I am going to compile it from source. centerim looks good and perfect.
