Description:

First off this is the first release of my first karamba theme. So it might be a bit bumpy.

KopeteBar is just a bar that holds ten icons that you can assign to contacts in kopete. The icons change to reflect the online status of the contacts. There is also a minimal set of kopete controls on the bar. You can pick an account to log onto, start kopete if its not already running, set all logged in accounts as away and disconnect all logged in accounts. There aren't any normal click areas on the bar so the pointer won't change to a pointing finger when you mouse over any of the icons but all of the icons are clickable and will either do something or popup a menu that lets you do something.

Credit goes to johnnyelvis and the spchat screen shots here on kde-look that got me started thinking about something like this.

Since I'm not really artistically inclined the backgrounds and graphics as well as some code changes were done by s3m10s

now there are 3 different kopete themes, sorry, that sux.

could you and the other guy agree to make it just one?

i understand okie is the original author, and s3m10s started this liquid stuff, though..

maybe okie could put up different backgrounds and all that, with credits to s3m10s - or however you both agree.

otherwise the themes of s3m10s would not benefit of the changes made by okie.

We've been in contact and any code changes I will send to s3m10s. s3m10s is better at the eye-candy than I am.

I'm also cleaning up the code now as well as adding some configuration entries. In the next version which I should have out in a few days you can right click on the widget and configure it to be 3 different sizes small 16x16 icons, medium 32x32 icons or large 64x64 icons. You can also choose whether you want a horizontal bar shape or a vertical box shape. There will also be 10 icons for contacts instead of 6. The user can also choose a custom image for each icon from the menu that pops up when the icon is left clicked. I haven't got the theme support built in yet but the code should allow for that to be added in the release after this next one.

I did some esthetic work on this and posted it as liquidkopetebar. if you continue developing it, i would love to work together on it. I'm especially interested in being able to choose icons for the users. I'm no coder, but I can do work on the graphical aspects.

I've downloaded the liquid ver and it looks nice. I'll look at modifying the code to allow for the different icon sizes and locations. Also I'll check about the overlay thing. I know I can gray an image with just karamba. I'll have to try stacking them and see what happens.

I've been waiting for this theme for like 6 months! well done. I've an idea: is there a way to superimpose 2 icons for the states: that way we could use one image, with a not available overlay or an unknown one. If it were done like that, you could choose user icons like out of that kdm icon set.

great job. keep up the good work.
