Subject description: an app common on smart phones in China and supposedly on computers, too.
 

WeChat (or WeXin) is an app common on smartphones in China. It lets you transfer documents as well as written messages, and audio clips. It's slowly replacing e-mail for sending documents.

Supposedly one can download it to a Windows computer and transfer documents. Although at home on Android phones, it does not seem to yet have a version for Ubuntu. Is there WeChat for Puppy Linux? I know that Puppy in Chinese exists.

Thanks!

this come from google:
Go to github and download the tar.gz file. Choose linux-x64.tar.gz or linux-ia32.tar.gz according to your OS architecture. Once downloaded, open a terminal window and navigate to the download folder where the tar.gz file is located. Then issue the following command to extract it.
Code:
tar xvf linux-x64.tar.gz

or
Code:
tar xvf linux-x64.tar.gz

Once it’s extracted, go to electronic-wechat-linux-x64 or electronic-wechat-linux-ia32 folder, then run this command to open Wechat.
Code:
./electronic-wechat

You will see the QR code to scan
What we need to now is to log into WeChat on our phone (Install WeChat mobile app if you haven’t already done so.) then go to Discover > Scan QR Code to scan the above QR code and confirm login with the desktop client. You need to scan this QR code only once.
To make our file system clean, we can move the folder to /opt/ directory.
Code:
mv electronic-wechat-linux-x64/ /opt/

or
Code:
mv electronic-wechat-linux-ia32/ /opt/

Then make a symbolic link.
Code:
ln -s /opt/electronic-wechat-linux-x64/electronic-wechat /usr/bin/wechat

or
Code:
ln -s /opt/electronic-wechat-linux-ia32/electronic-wechat /usr/bin/wechat

So now we just need to make a desktop file in /usr/share/applications to see it in the menu
