Install

sudo apt install gajim

This includes the OMEMO plugin (I didn't need to go here.)

Configure

Free server with secure group chat via OMEMO

You want to find a free XMPP server that is current enough to support OMEMO.

  • Register on the website of this xmpp.social server.
  • Add an account for it to Gajim, and connect.
  • Create a new room! Set a password. Check members-only. You should be able to then turn on OMEMO!

Run your own server

TODO

Mobile client

There's a mobile client that is supposedly capable of OMEMO. It's not free or open source. :-(

Incabable XMPP servers

On these (older?) servers, Gajim always says "group must be non-anonymous and member-only" even though I'd set it that way.
