Description:

This is a port of the very popular 'Efficient' style for the Kopete 0.11 to Kopete 0.12+. It even contains some improvements (see changelog below)...

You can find the older version of this style that works with Kopete 0.11 here:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=26318


I made "Efficient" because I needed a style that does not waste screen space (sometimes a whole line is sacrificed 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 subtle color here and there, and it doesn't repeat the names for every consecutive message.

Apart from efficiency I also tried to make it look sweet. See and judge for your self.


### Variants ###
If you don't like some small things about this style and you know the CSS standard you can easily make a variation of this style as a "Variant". Read more about this here:
http://kopete.kde.org/chatwindowstyleguide/index.html

Make sure to sent me (ciesATkdeDOTnl) your variant so I can include it in the next release of this style!


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


## the KNewStuff way
this theme should be in KNewStuff. Go to Kopete -> Settings -> Configure Kopete -> Appearance -> ChatWindow -> click the "Get New..." button. You should now be able to easily install this style (and other styles).


## the 'easy' way
Go to Kopete -> Settings -> Configure Kopete -> Appearance -> ChatWindow -> click "Install" button.
Put this URL in the "Location" field and click "Ok":
http://www.kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=52781&id=1


## 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://www.kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=52781&id=1 && tar xvzf 52781*

2.0 -- port to Kopete 0.12, added some 'hover' effects to the time and the header (many asked me to include the date in each message: here you go!)


## 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

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

I like it! One bug probably: I'm using kopete for irc as well and multiple channel messages are intended.

Maybe you can fix the bug ;-)

Thanks,
