After years of using centericq for ICQ and Jabber I switched to gajim (ICQ via transport), because centericq didn’t have any useable UTF8 support. I was never really satisfied with gajim though, because I happen to switch between my PC and my Notebook multiple times a day, resulting in inconsistent chat-histories etc – a console based solution in a screen is so much nicer.

So I tried MCabber, that turned out to be really great once you’ve configured it to your needs. After installing MCabber (most Linux/BSD distributions should have a package or port) you’ll want to configure it to your needs.
