  5. Getting Started – TheLounge IRC Client

To get this up and running a few steps needs to be done beside installing via Dashboard or cli.

Via CLI use the following commands after install to proper create your own user (the process is the same for creating other users as well) sudo -u thelounge thelounge because the thelounge command needs to be run as the thelounge user,
Then use thelounge add <name> (exchange with username you wish to use) to create your first user .

This will ask for a few details:

  • Password: Along with <name> , this will be used to authenticate the user on the login page. Note that when typing it, characters will not appear on the screen for security and privacy reasons. Once created, users can change their passwords directly from the UI.
  • Logs: By default, user logs are stored at ${THELOUNGE_HOME}/users/ . You can disable this by entering no .

Once created you are now able to gain access to TheLounge using the credentials used during the creation process.

Other cmds:
thelounge list – List all users
thelounge remove <name> – remove a user
