Please consider making a small plugin for kopete. It will only benefit KDE users.

And if you feel like helping GNOME guys a Gaim plugin will do the justice.

In GNU/Linux Gaim and Kopete are the popular multimessengers.

Please...

Yes, I'll consider kopete plugin - probably when moving to Qt4 and also rewriting some parts of the code for better core vs gui separation.

VyQChat is a great application, you can also have a plugin for VyQchat for kopete.

1.VyQChat (standalone)
2.VyQchat-plugin (kopete plugin).

this will definitely help kde to have lan to lan chat client. Please consider adding a plugin to kopete.

I have to say though I found a problem with ver 026. I am using vyqchat in a local lan with around 50 vypress users, and after about 5-10 minutes after logging on they are complaining about my vyqchat "flooding". They are receiving a message in vypress which sounds like that:
"Incoming flood detected from 10.1.100.14. Ignoring user TaTaE for 5 minutes"
I hope there will be a fix for that, because this is a great chat application.

I have same problem. Win-VyChat clients detect flood from vyqchat :(

And I think that vyqchat incorrectly detects user encoding (UTF/ansi) - russian letters in messages from some users are displayed incorrectly :(

P.S. Sorry for my bad English :)

Well, kopete comes immediately to my mind; so, what about making it a kopete plugin?

Well, I wanted VyQChat to be KDE-independent. The only requirement is Qt and nothing more. Kopete plugin however is a nice idea, maybe I'll add it in the future as optional compile-time option.

Why? KDE integration gets you access to KIO, KFile dialogs, inter-program script-ability and a huge host of other functionality. Not to mention the 10 million desktops that KDE applications reside on. Bobby
