Description:

KickPIM is a panel applet for quickly editing and accessing the KDE addressbook or sending emails to your contacts. It shows also a list of upcoming birthdays and waiting emails of multiple email-accounts.

When I added support for photos in the contact list in Kopete, I did the same for KickPim.

Adding support in Kopete was easy because we have a component architecture for the contact list display (created by Richard Smith) that allows us to layout an item in any arbitrary style, including text, images, vboxes, hboxes and spacers. So then I ported this architecture to KickPim too.

KickPim's author never replied my emails, and I didn't want to fork or something, so I made this patches available here. I hope to merge them back with the author's codebase in the future.

The new display code for contacts could look ugglier or have regresions, but they will be fixed as I get feedback or ideas for the styles. To activate the KABC Photos, look in the preferences.

I missed an ability to open kmail from KickPim. It would show me the blinking mail icon, but to open Kmail for viewing that mail I have to go to "Start\KDE" button.

The simplest way for me to add kmail, was to alter the right-click menu.

kickpimwidget.cpp
69d68
< static const int POPUP_MAIL_APP = 304;
112d110
< m_popupMisc->insertItem ( SmallIcon("mail_get"), i18n("K&mail"), POPUP_MAIL_APP);
485,487d482
< case POPUP_MAIL_APP:
< KRun::runCommand("kmail");
< break;



Its not the best solution however. If I knew how to program I would make the particular mail account (the main, "left-click" view) clickable. May be add a "run application on click" option to "Email Preferences" > "Email Accounts" >

Since you seem to ba a little interested in tweaking KickPim, I was wandering if you can help me with this feature?

... is me and I stopped developing for KickPIM. I have a lot of ideas for KickPIM but not enough time. The codebase is yours ;-)

hey hello!
I was waiting for your emails...
I don't promise I can develop it forever but I can maintain and enhance it while possible. Can you add me to the project site? (dmacvica)

best regards
Duncan

using patch "-sp0 < kickpim-0.5.3-duncan-0.1.patch" in the correct directory structure I cannot get the patch to apply cleanly..
