Kopete Style 0.11

Score 76%

Submitted:  Jul 11 2005
Updated:  Nov 22 2005


I made "Efficient", a Kopete style, because i needed a style that does not waste screenspace (sometimes a whole line is sacrifised just for the contact name), and shows me all information (names and times) in a clean fashion.
It nicely aligns the message texts, adds a bit of subtile color here and there, and it doesn't repeat the names for every message; altogether this makes the whole thing more readable.

Apart from efficiency I also tried to make it look sweet. See and judge for your self.
If you don't like it it is quite easy to modify it because I made a values-block where you can -- for instance -- easily modify the color values.

See also the 'single' derivative of this style. It is not soooo good looking as this style but is therefor lower in resource usage and might work better on older versions of Kopete.
You find it here:

### Install instructions ###
Installing this style very easy! Below you find several ways to install it... Hopefully one of them is to your likings :)

## the 'easy' way
Go to Kopete -> Settings -> Configure Kopete -> Appearance -> ChatWindow -> click "Import" button
Fill in this URL for Efficient:
Or this URL for Efficient-single:

click OK, and there it is. To get rid of the shitty name you can 'Copy' it to a different name and then 'Delete' the original.

## the generic way
click the download link on this site and put the file in:

## the console way (the ruling way)
just copy paste this -- as one line -- to your console and all should work well:

mkdir -p ~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/ && wget http://kde-look.org/content/files/26318-Efficient.xsl -O ~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/Efficient.xsl

## the KNewStuff way
this theme should also be in KNewStuff. if you don't know what that means try one of the above ways :)

Let me know what you think of it!
And don't forget to VOTE :)

Cies Breijs.


## 2005.11.13 ##
1.6 -- added a conversation header with the date in it (+mod option), and a full timstamp modification option

## 2005.10.19 ##
1.5 -- added scrollbars when very long lines without spaces are used, and a derivative called 'single' is added

## 2005.07.18 ##
1.3 -- full date appears in a tooltip, full support for message styling, cleaned up the code

## 2005.07.16 ##
1.2 -- now has 'continued messages' like the Adium style, it is now much more easy to modify this style because of a values block (see the comments in the xsl sheet), clean up the sheet a bit and have put more comments in there

## 2005.07.13 ##
1.1 -- added some color, removed the 'line', generally more sweet now

## 2005.07.11 ##
1.0 -- initial release

 VERY nice...

any chance of squeezing the date of each message in there?
I do a lot of chatting on business matters & regularly look back at the date.
Problem is, there is no obvious place to put it...
Anyway, just something to think about.

Okay that make 3 pll asking for Dates in every message. I'll probably have the date-in-every-message feature as an option: you will have to slightly edit a variable in the configuration part of the code.

Or is it okay for you to have the date on top of every chat?

 Bug: "boxed" message

 by Hantilles on: Nov 27 2005
Score 50%


first of all, efficient is the best Kopete theme I know and it's actually quite perfect for me.
Yet I have found a bug that doesn't mean I can't use it but it is still quite annoying. I hope I get the following right so you can understand, what I mean (I'm a non-native English speaker).
To describe my problem better I put up a screenshot at:

So, here I go:
The problem occurs only with highlighted messages with this blue box. As my nick is usually longer as the standard indentation. That would mean that the first line of my message starts more right hand than the following lines. As I often use GPG-encrypted messages the whole message is then sent in such an "highlighted message _box_" (the box thing is the point). As the box in your theme is exactly as wide as the window content minus the standard intendation you get such an horizontal scroll bar which isn't nice at all.
I'm afraid I'm absolutely no XSLT man so I can't fix it myself. It would be great if you could have a look at this and make the box thing not as wide. Would be great. Thanks in advance.

 No more supported?

Does this theme no more supported? The "Import" option doesn't exist in my Kopete 0.12.3, and I did tar the xsl myself and install. But Kopete returns an error to me saying this theme does not contain a valid chat window.
This theme looks cool. I wanna try it out/ :(

 Change of format

It seems that the newer Kopete uses a different format for themes. Could we expect a rewrite of this Kopete theme so that we can continue using it with delight?

 Please update?

I'd really like to use this theme too.It doesn't seem to work with Kopete 0.12.3 using KDE 3.5.5

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
