Description:

A clean, fast, compact and beauty theme for kopete.
Easy to extend trought variants for everybody having minimal CSS knowledge.

This release (2.0) includes:
* Copy and paste output is clean and readable. Thanks to Sébastien Laoût (Glossyk author) for suggestions about that.
* When you presses the main mouse button over the nickname, appears extended information about him (Protocol and Screen ID).
* If you choices a variant without avatars, the extended info includes the avatar.
* Link URLs are replaced with the word "link" preventing the break of the chat flow. (There is a known bug with this feature...)
* Compact layout is even more compact. Really confortable when chatting in chatrooms like in IRC.
* RTL support is more efficient. Some one can give me feedback about that?

At this time, there are six layouts and three color schemes. 18 variants.

Layout Variants
* Full: Avatars at right and a clean chat flow.
* Like Full but avatars at right.
* Like Full but with no avatars. Avatars appears in the extended window.
* Compact: Nick names aligned at left and avatrs at right.
* Compact but avatars at left.
* Compact without avatars (except when you presses the nickname).

Color schemes
* BlueGreen: The default, classic and most popular.
* Contact Colors: Every one have a random colo. Usefull for chatrooms.
* System Color: Your chat window will be integated with you desktop appareance.

Old variants like Neon, Dark, GreenRed and many others can be added if there are requests for that. If you want a variant, please, send me the CSS stylesheet and I'll include in the next release of kONE.

Enjoy it!

Remove or comment the line 65 of main.css.
This file can be found in:


~/.kde4/share/apps/kopete/styles/kONE/Contents/Resources/


Replace .kde4 for .kde if you're using KDE3 yet.

The line you must remove contains this text:


.message a { content: 'link'; font-weight: bold; font-size: .9em;}

Thanks for great job with this beautiful theme.
I have one suggestions.
When I move the mouse above a IM buddy icon, show up date and time of the beginning of a chat, would be great if show up date and time when the user has logged on.

Hi!
I tried your kopete theme and I really like it, but there's one thing I don't like.
You replace links that are posted with the clickable text "linklink".
Will this change? I'd prefer to see the link that is posted.

If you want to stay with this behaviour, you should at least change it to display the text "link" instead of "linklink" as it is now ;)

Best Regards

Hi,

Extrange behaivour, I getting the text "link" but not twice...
I think something is happening in your invironment.

The CSS code that is responsible to replace long URL links with just the word "link" is in the file ~ /.kde3.5/share/apps/kopete/styles/kONE/Contents/Resources/main.css at the line 67.

Remove or comment the line 67 and you'll get normal links (restart kopete required after modifications).
Ensure that in this line there is only one word "link"... maybe you has been edited this file and added a word "link" by mistake.

Hope this solve the problem, and waiting more feedback...
Thanks!

First, this is the BEST of the best of kopete chat styles (Probably the only one).

And I have some basic suggestions;

1/ Easy customization... Its cool to have some variants, but probably could be better to have a 'external' tool that generates the CSS. I seen that CSS is very simple an compacted and could be easy to be generated. So you can do an external tool to configure colours, and other stuff. This tool can be done using QT4... I'm not sure if kopete supports some of that... ¿probably as a Plugin? ¿kONE kopete plugin to edit kopete colours?

2/ Now the order in puctures and name layer is; YOUR PIC, YOUR NAME, MY PIC, MY NAME, so when i put the mouse into my name the picture is moved up. You can change the order to; OUR PIC, YOUR NAME, MY NAME, MY PIC to solve it.

3/ ¿Vertical line between chat layer and pics layer?

4/ Posiblity to hide some status information, for example;

X is now online
X is now offline
x is now out of lunch
X is now ...

Showing just the last 2 or 3 status...


5/ Actions in one line. For example;

"X
sent you a nudge"

on the same line;

"X sent you a nudge"

Hi imx;

Thanks fot the feedback.
I'll ansawer all your request.

1) The idea I've in mind is to provide a web site where the user can build his custom variants trought a cool and easy interface. When the user has been configured his variant, there will be abailable for download a .css file that he must save in ~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/kONE/... and start using his custom varian.
This tool will bring options as colours, link behaivour, layouts, etc...
All of this will save me to make lots and lots of variants that, never will complish with the preferencies for every one.
Doing this in QT4 is prossible, but I think to many work just for a theme. It would be fantastic if Kopete brings this tool in the future.

2) I Agree. I'll try some modifications with that. Thanks.

3) I disagree with that. Old versions of kONE has more lines between the different block in the chat window. Now I cleaned the visual aspect of all the window by removing unnecessary lines. Put a new line will not help at all but, I'll do some tests.

4) I've pending a papper asking for some featues to Kopete developers.
I don't know why the engine puts a <span> and a </span> after and before my theme contents. This is a bad behaivour that breaks lots of CSS features, like the selectors (+) that would be really useful for thinks like you're suggesting. As a reference: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/selector.html
If my div with class .internal is inside a span that i can't remove, I can't do more that what you're seeing. :S

5) With compact layouts there is no line break in Actions. But... you really needs to compact the non compact layout? Try the compact layout, may be more in your likes. ;-)

First of all: Thanks for this beautiful theme. I would not like kopete as much as I do now if this theme would not be there.

One small think I noticed when moving to kopete 0.12.5 (coming with kde 3.5.7): An extra line is added after every message I send. I solved this problem by removing the "<br />" added after the message body. Without really thinking about it I removed it in every html file. Don't know if it breaks the layout with previous versions of kopete but it works fine for me.

Thanks, I'll try the new kopete as soon as I upgrade to KDE 3.5.7 and look what happens.

Maybe there is some changes on KHTML.

I love this. Loooove~~

I was impressed by this at first sight, but I wasn't certain how much I'd like this in the long term since I had already modified Kopete's default style to suit my preferences...

But after having used it for almost a month now, I must say I'm still as in love with this style as I was on the first day. ^_^ Beatiful work.

kanutron you made a very sweet theme!

i see how you nicely extended some of the ideas i have shown in the efficient theme i made for kopete 0.11: good work!

without knowing you made this theme i ported my old efficient theme to 0.12, see it here:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=52781

maybe you want to have a look, i've put some new features in there that you might want to copy (like data/time mouse over thingies).

nice one!

Yes, some of the new features will be implemented in the kONE.

Date/time over issues was implemented a few weeks ago but never released... last days I've too many work. :(

You're the original author of Efficient, and all kONE are based on you fantastic work.

Thanks to you man!

What i'd like to see is a set of variants that use the system colors you have set up. This would be the perfect theme for me!

Thanks.

I think that this is not possible due the API to themes development.

But I'll investigate it.

Anyway, if you can send me a color scheme that you want to get in the kopete chat style, I'll do all the possible to proportionate a "universal" color scheme that you wants.

Thanks... ;-)

Ok, If I'm chating with you, you want to view only your own buddy icon? or my buddy icon?

Just one buddy icon? Why?

CSS 2 provide system colors:
http://www.utoronto.ca/ian/books/xhtml1/appd/update-23feb2000.html

But I doublt a lot of them would be useful: on my system, "ActiveCaption" is displayed black instead of blue, so I assume Konqueror does not provide this value.
