(Project idea) Kaim


KDE Chat Application

As you probably know, there's an excellent GTK based IM client called Gaim. How about making a KDE/Qt version of Gaim? One that integrates well into KDE, and the various aspects of KDE. I'm not a programmer, but I hope others who are reading this are interested in doing this. ;)
The download file I attached is a screenshot of Gaim with 'gtk-engines-gtk-qt' that makes GTK apps look like KDE apps, but as you clearly see, it still doesn't integrate well, nor looks as good as a regular KDE app.
In my opinion, Kopete really can't 'kompete' with Gaim. Gaim supports more networks, has loads of plugins like festival (speech synth that reads your incoming messages) and encryption (obvious). It's a lot more actively developed and you can expect at least one new version per month (although usually two), it's the best and most popular multi-platform IM client.
A KDE compatible version would be great for KDE (but not good for Kopete lol).
Please do create Kaim. I know over 43 KDE users who don't like kopete at all. It shouldn't be too hard, considering both KDE and Gaim are open source ;)
Happy coding, and may the source be with you :D

 C != C++

Not only the difference between gtk and qt. KDE is programmed in C++ and Gaim with C. That "++" counts alot. So you can't just port Gaim. You need to rewrite and design the code.

So it would be easier to fork kopete... maybe you should just learn to write code youself before referring to lazyness of developers when suggesting insane projects without doing any research(like is the porting even possible).

I am using Gaim on KDE at the moment. Dunno why it is working. Maybe i am having the needed gnome-libraries. i think there have to be more than 45 users who do not like kopete for programming kaim...

 porting it

it doesn't really need porting. as of 2.0beta4, the gaim core and gui are completely separate. a c++ gui can certainly be made. hell it can even be written in python. all we need is someone with enough time and expertise to do it. maybe the developer of kopete?

pff! did you actually believe me?!

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.
