I use skype quite a lot, both to talk to people on other computers and to ring land lines. I would recommend it.

there is program called adium that works with gg. I mean you can have adium your friends can have gg and you can talk to each other. I recommend, I used that for a year because I had mac and gg does not work with mac, but fortunately i found adium... :)

You'll just need to know how to register in PL

To find him you'd need his GG number or his nickname or his real name. You could also have all GG members listed acording to their location I think. OR may spam everybody throughout GG network with your message...just send over 2.5 million messages.

I am on TLEN which is antother type of messenger but compatible with GG network, so I can contact and be contacted by GG folks.

I know gg is a polish program, but is there an english version? Or an english user manual available online somewhere?

Thank you
5 Jan 2007 #14
Oh, yeah!
i'd like so much to know if there are any plugin to "translate" the GG... i'll be eternally grateful! :)

yeah GG is in polish only im afraid and as a female learning polish from stratch i installed it completely blindly (no pun intended there) but i had no idea what any or some of the polish was when i installed it ... i used my dictionary to assist with some words and took it from there.

I now have it reinstalled after i remastered my PC and the password for my GG wouldnt work (but it does now :) )

me too chahal :)

there WAS an english version of GG but it was VERY BAD. you are better off getting a good PL friend to help you set up and then you are laughing!

HEY :) anybody feeling generous? to give a POL-ENG translation for step by step of downloading GG and setup? once that is done i think it would be easy then to use the basic functions nie?

If your looking for an English version of gadu, try gaim ( It works with Windows and Linux. If you use a Mac, I would recommend AdiumX (; however, you could only set up a new account with Gaim for now. It is my understanding that eventually you will be able to set up a new account in AdiumX(based on gaim) as well at there is an open ticket on this issue(

I use an English version of GG called JaduJadu.

It's exactly the same but the instructions and the app are all in English. it works great, I've never had one problem with it and I'm often talking with people in Poland who use GG.

When your at the page click the "Messenger" tab and then just click on the link titled "JavuSetup3.0.3.exe" beneath the title "Installer for Windows".

If you get stuck with it and need a hand just let me know.

So...with guesswork and a dictionary, I downloaded gadu-gadu a while ago. But once I was set up on that, I changed my Skype language from English to Polish...and looked for correlating terms between the two programs.

It kinda worked :)
But why look for an English version of gg? Isn't the whole point to figure it out and learn more Polish in the process? :P

ukpolska is right to suggest the wikipedia site. It gives some basic info on the program. I found it helpful

***English Gadu-Gadu***
There is an IM program that I have on my other computer that supports plugins for various other IM programs, including GG. You can chat with GG users and be on their list and vice-versa. I'm sorry that I cannot think of the name atm as I'm trying to find the darn thing aswell, but there is one and it works good.

I'll bookmark this post and when I get ahold of it, I'll let you all know!
