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!

Hi,
Can you tell us what windeco style are you using? I have tried to get the title bar colour merged with the menubar with no success.

Thanks,
Kanwar

Ok, easy. first of all, I'm in Gentoo and some themes are builded using ebuilds found here, at kde-look.

* The Qt theme used is QtCurve (really good one, custom menu color thanks to this theme).
You can find it at http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=5065
Play with configuration options to match my setup. ;-)

* Window decoration theme is Crystal.

Again, configuring-it you can match my setup or, improve it as your eyes.

Hi, kONE for kopete 0.12 have a variant without icons.

And, released today, kONE for kopete 0.11 has now a variant too without buddy icons as well.

Take a look at:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=36190

Or just download the latest version of kopete and try kONE for kopete 0.12.

Enjoy...

Apparently no buddy icons -> no custom emoticons. Could you please explain/investigate this and possibly solve the "bug"?
TY :)

If you put the mouse cursor over the message or the timestamp, you'll get a tooltip with the date.

It is not sufficient, I know.

A new release soon. ;-)

Your theme is very nice, I like it. Clean and slick.

I developed the new style engine and now this is my current theme both at home and at work.

You make me happy. :-)

I've a lot of suggestions to improve the engine. Maybe outside the "standard" that has been used (Adium?).

I'll make a pseudo paper to you to share my ideas with the intention to improve (even more) kopete itself. See you soon!

And thanks for the comment.

Hey, I really like your theme. It's even better than efficient where I didn't like the fact that encrypted messages have a horizontal scrollbar bug...

now on topic: I switched yesterday from 0.11 kopete to 0.12-svn. Now I use this port of your other KOne theme and some of the new things (blue/green) I like even better. But the thing I don't like is the nick name obove the actual message and not on the left hand side where it was in your 1.1 version of 0.11-kopete-theme. Don't know if this is because you updated the other recently, but I'd love to see the nick on the left side also in this theme.

Motivation for this is: as mentioned above I use GPG-encryption with many contacts over Jabber. The way a short message is displayed now leads to four lines:

1: [lightbulbsymbol] $NICKNAMEofCONTACT
2: »
3: "Incoming encrypted Message:"
4: ACTUAL MESSAGE, OFTEN A ONE-LINER

Now, I assume that there can nothing be done for 3 (this seems to belong to crypto plugin code) and 4 (well that's the messag) and I am also pretty sure that there can nothing be done against the line break between line 2 and 3 after the » as kopete seems to create an "encrypted box". But it would be great to have at least the nickname at the left side (apart from that I like to see on the left hand "in a row", who is talking, so I don't have to look within the text).

greetings,
Hantilles

Try the version 1.0 of this chat style.
There are variant to provide exactly the same layout as kONE for kopete 0.11.

Hope you like. ;-)

By the way, take a look at:

I think that is the right way to solve the problem.

What you thinks?

Ok. Can you send me an e-mail to hello AT kanutron DOT net?

We'll establish a jabber connection to test this. I can't reproduce the prolem.

I know what he means, the nickname in conversation is aligned above the conversation and not on the left side as it is 1.1 version for 0.11 kopete, it would be great, if we can choose, how we want it to be (style option :)
