Using CenterICQ on SDF

CenterICQ is not actively maintained anymore, CenterIM is a fork and is actively maintained. However CenterICQ is still functional.

CenterICQ & CenterIM

These same steps aply to connect to ICQ using CenterIM.

  1. Run centericq (or centerim) from the shell.
  2. The first time you will be greted with the configuration screen you can use your left arrow to select Done and press Enter
  3. With down arrow key move under icq protocol, select UIN and press Enter to provide your ICQ number.
  4. Fill in your password in the same way as the UIN.
  5. With left arrow key select Done and press Enter.

I tried to register a new ICQ account with CenterICQ without luck.


  • Press ALT + a and select Accounts.
  • Select Add to open the New Account dialog box.
  • Choose ICQ from the Protocol select box.
  • Fill the Username field with your ICQ number, and Password fields.
  • Using the TAB move to Accept and press Enter key.

After this, Finch will try to connect to ICQ network.
