Irssi is a modular chat client that is most commonly known for its text mode

with IRC support built in, and there are third party ICB, SILC, XMPP
(Jabber), PSYC and Quassel protocol modules available.

For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
