Do you mean just over a LAN or the interweb ?

Maybe Pidgin or Jitsi ?

or my old favourite (on a LAN) iptux .. though I haven't tested it in a while.

I find jitsi works very well and you can also chat to people on windows or mac as it is multi-platform.

iptux works great, I use it to chat with my grand-daughter even though we're in the same room on different PC's it's a good fun way to help her with her spelling and grammar

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs then you're not quite grasping the situation

Hi Graeme!  Welcome back!  I'd searched for some old posts of yours from the distant past and noticed you hadn't posted in a long while?  Hope all is well with you and a belated Happy New Year to you!
