I allowed myself to create a package for the Arch Linux User repository for your plugin. You can find it here:

And by the way: thanks for this little but very efficient tool! - Sep 01 2009
Kopete DeskList Plugin

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by conrausch 118 comments


I hope you're still working on this plugin, cause I have come to like it very much over the last two weeks since I began using it.

With an upgrade to a new xserver and a new i810 driver on my laptop I got finally my 3D desktop working with beryl fine as where I had many problems before.

The only usability problem I have with DeskList now is, that it doesn't work really well with beryl activated, as it doesn't show anymore on every workspace and pops up above my current window when it's view is updated. I would be great, it there's a possibility to make DeskList ready for the use with 3D desktops. - Feb 07 2007

I'm VERY sorry, I forgot to answer, but it seems that you took care of it anyway. Thanks very much, this looks great and the new designs are really cool! - Jul 26 2006

Hey, I really like your theme. It's even better than efficient where I didn't like the fact that encrypted messages have a horizontal scrollbar bug...

now on topic: I switched yesterday from 0.11 kopete to 0.12-svn. Now I use this port of your other KOne theme and some of the new things (blue/green) I like even better. But the thing I don't like is the nick name obove the actual message and not on the left hand side where it was in your 1.1 version of 0.11-kopete-theme. Don't know if this is because you updated the other recently, but I'd love to see the nick on the left side also in this theme.

Motivation for this is: as mentioned above I use GPG-encryption with many contacts over Jabber. The way a short message is displayed now leads to four lines:

1: [lightbulbsymbol] $NICKNAMEofCONTACT
2: »
3: "Incoming encrypted Message:"

Now, I assume that there can nothing be done for 3 (this seems to belong to crypto plugin code) and 4 (well that's the messag) and I am also pretty sure that there can nothing be done against the line break between line 2 and 3 after the » as kopete seems to create an "encrypted box". But it would be great to have at least the nickname at the left side (apart from that I like to see on the left hand "in a row", who is talking, so I don't have to look within the text).

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.

Hi, cool app.

For those who are interested: I wrote a gentoo ebuild which works for me on AMD64. I marked it also ~x86 and ~ppc but those need to be tested.
It's my first ebuild and it was actually mainly copied together :) so I welcome comments.

Either you need to have setup an overlay portage dir or the ebuild will be gone after the next emerge sync

cd /usr/(local/)portage
mkdir kde-misc
cd kde-misc
mkdir kdmtheme
cd kdmtheme
ebuild kdmtheme-0.8.2.ebuild digest

emerge kdmtheme -av

Hi there,
this app looks great and I'd love to give it a try. But as it seems I'm not able to compile it (without arts support) on AMD64 gentoo.
I tried it with and without the ebuild provided here:
And I got twice this error message:

(the last bit seems to be gentoo portage specific stuff)

Would be great if you could give me a hint. Compiling arts would be too much a pain as my whole system runs without it...
