Description:

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:
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=30386



### 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:
http://kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=26318&id=1
Or this URL for Efficient-single:
http://kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=30386&id=1

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:
~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/

## 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 :)

Cheers!
Cies Breijs.

i like this style, its clean and efficient like the name says :) You should incorporate the adium style (consecutive messaging), that'll make it even more efficient :) just some thoughts, good job btw :D

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=24477

is this the adium style you mean?

I'll have a look at it, but because i dont use a whole line for the contact name it doesnt really save so much space... And for the icons (in the adium style) i dont really like that.

but i have a look at it :)

thanks for the tip!

Cies Breijs.

oh, thats not THE adium style.. thats just a style i cooked up hahah i wasn't suggesting you to change your style to look like mine. i'm just saying you should have consecutive messaging incorporated into yours.. like you know how in your style.. every message from the same person has the user's name? well you should make it so it only shows their name once if the messages are all consecutive... eg.. quaff >> hi cies cies >> hey >> whats up? >> like my new style? quaff >> not much >> yeah i do actually >> its pretty nice kinda like that hahaha thats what consecutive messaging (adium style) is all about.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I really like your style. It's clean and just efficient. Right now I don't have any suggestions since I've been using it only for an hour but I will let you know.

You mean the text of the message body text?

Is this problem also with other styles?
If not let me know an other style that doesnt suffer from this problem and I will fix it...

Thanks for the report!

Thank you for this, I really like it.

And: you can import this style with a nice name: just click import, paste the url, import it, copy it to a new name and delete the old one. The easiest way as long as khotnewstuff is not in stable, I think.

the only thing I miss was the date in the timestamp, I added it for myself. Do you plan this for yourself?

 date in timestamp

one wants seconds, another one wants the day in there...

maybe i can add an easy configuration options for it (the way the colors are now 'easily configuratable')

i'll see... personally i dont really see a use for it, i dont have many more than one day conversations. but if many ppl say here i really want it i'll consider defaulting to it.


Cies Breijs.


NOTE TO SELF: maybe make a tooltip with the extended date for the timestamp.

The full timestamp should now be in a tooltip (hang over the time) and the point of copy/deleting the style to rename it is also in now...

Thanks!

 minor issue

this style rocks! I have a minor issue/suggestion to make. The text always starts aligned with the screenname in the first line. But if my screen name is long, then it doesn't work. I'm not sure what the best way to handle that is, but the behavior should be consistent...

yeah, this is an small issue. there is one thing you can do:
change the screen name (right click the contact in the buddy-list and then its in one of the options)


for the theme, right now with slightly long names the text gets intended (which is okay imo) but with really long names the name right alligns. well the theme cannot suit all.


personally i hate the reaalllyyy long names, and i give short name to such ppl.

Now that there is the Google talk support in kopete, the long name issue appeared once. I can change my budiies names for the jabber account but as my name, my gmail adress is seen and is too long, and I cannot change that. So is there a way to change that??

Sorry this issue remains... i cannot help that, it's a problem in Kopete -- a also noticed it.

maybe see if there is already a bug report...


i go to bed now, maybe i file a bug report tomorrow, but you can also do it (bugs.kde.org)

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.
