Use our repositories
Compile it yourself


Running Toxic for the first time creates an empty file called toxic.conf in your home configuration directory ("~/.config/tox" for Linux users). Adding options to this file allows you to enable auto-logging, change the time format (12/24 hour), and much more. You can view our example config file here.


If your default prefix is "/usr/local" and you receive the following:

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

you can attempt to correct it by running sudo ldconfig. If that doesn't work, run:

echo '/usr/local/lib/' | sudo tee -a /etc/
sudo ldconfig
