They are short or insufficient pieces of information and require additions to further increase the article's usefulness. The project values stubs as useful first steps toward complete articles.


Installation on Linux Mint

They have an apt repository that works for Debian and it's many variants such as Linux Mint and Ubuntu.

sudo bash
wget -qO - https://repo.tox.im/tox-apt.sh | bash
apt-get install utox

Tox DNS

People's ID's in the Tox system are really long hashes like a bitcoin address which are impossible to remember, but they have some centralised DNS servers that you can enter name and address pairs into so that people can refer to users by name instead. The current servers are utox.org and toxme.se.
