Hi Testuser,
I tested the Appimage,
works for me (Porteus 4.0 Xfce)
But(!) I can't send voice messages.
How do you turn on the microphone in this case?

There is also a possibility directly in the browser
(Chromium based browsers: google chrome, chromium, ...):
https://web.whatsapp.com/

Voice messages can also be sent there.
Microphone can be switched on (allow microphone)

Has anyone installed Whatsapp on Porteus? I found the whatsapp add in for pidgen here: http://packages.slackonly.com/pub/packa ... -whatsapp/ and installed it via USM. It said it installed successfully. I started pidgen but don't see any reference to whatsapp. How do I actually run whatsapp once it's installed?
thanks you for provide this. I install from your mentioned link and download it.
