From the project web page:

Gobby is a free collaborative editor supporting multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It uses GTK+ 2.6 as its windowing toolkit and thus integrates nicely into the GNOME desktop environment.


Gobby .4 is in the community repo. To install, run

sudo pacman -S gobby

The newer development version .5 (0.4.94-1 at the time of writing) is available in AUR.

packer -S gobby-dev


To start the server portion, run

/usr/bin/infinoted-0.5 --security-policy=no-tls

The server only needs to be running on one machine.

Then, run the gobby client and connect to the server via IP or localhost.

If you’d rather have encryption, TLS is available. Use:

infinoted --create-key --create-certificate -k key.pem  -c cert.pem

The keys creation is automatic, and you can launch the server just using:

infinoted -k key.pem  -c cert.pem
