-If you prefer to talk to other Vinux users through your computer'​s microphone rather than typing, you can use the built in Mangler program. If you've ever used Microsoft Windows, this is simply an open source version of the Windows Ventrilo program, so any servers you might use there will work on Mangler. If not, we'll cover Mangler in detail. To launch Mangler is similar to launching Pidgin; you can launch it from the dash, where you can type all or part of its name, followed by Enter, or you can run it from the Alt+F2 dialogue. When you start Mangler, it will display its window, with a tree view designed to show you what server you're on, and the different rooms in that server, as well as the users connected to that server. Since you're not connected to anything, the tree view will be blank. ​+If you prefer to talk to other Vinux users through your computer'​s microphone rather than typing, you can use the built in [[Mangler|Mangler]] ​program.
