It has already been ported to KDE4 and has been moved into the official KDE repository [1]. I'll probably publish it during the next few weeks.

Best wishes.

This plugin still works fine on kde 3.5.9 and kopete 0.12.7.

A gentoo ebuild can be found here:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=223903

I would love to see some more improvements to this:
* being able to configure when the light flashes, for example only when there is no chat window open (the kopete-ktts plugin offers something like this and more - this could prevent "light spam")
* read out the incoming text in morse code using the light (I would love to practice my morse code reading that way)

hi fellas, Could U make a plugin that would make the num-lock, scroll-lock and caps-lock lights flash? (when I used Windows, I used Miranda and it had this plugin and it was amazing, when receiving a message, all three lights started to flash for a given time or light in a given sequence)

thnx

btw, the issue with the kde-headers happens to me too, and when compiling, it writes no headers installed and this will fail. I have ubuntu 7.04, kde 3.5.7. :D

thnx

For kopete-thinklight to compile properly on (k)ubuntu you need to have kdenetwork-dev installed. Good luck!

You must specify "--prefix `kde-config --prefix`" on the command line for configure. This will install the plugin in the KDE installation directories. See the INSTALL file for more information.

i have this message :

checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

what is the problem ?

To give you a more detailed answer I need to know what distribtuion you are using. I suspect, however, the headers to either be installed somewhere else than under prefix/of/kde/include/kde or that you are missing the development packages of KDE and kopete at all.

It seems your system is missing the kde headers. Since I don't have Mandrive I can't tell you exactly what packages you need to install. Anyway, my guess is that you need to install the package libkdecore4-devel. If there is something like a kdenetwork-devel package install this too.

very nice idea. It would be good to have flood protection.

Nice idea. Would be nicer, though, if the plugin would work on non-thinkpad laptops. I'll try to make it work with my ASUS leds, which are toggled by writing to a proc-file.

Will get back to You if that will succeed ;)

Changed file path to /proc/acpi/asus/mled (mail led) and strings written to file to 0 and 1, but it does not work :/

I might have made a mistake somewhere, but can't see where would it be...

Did you also change strings to "1" and "0" that are searched for in each if condition?

Sorry that I can't help you more on this... I do not own an Asus notebook. However, if you'd figure out how to do this, I'd love to integrate Asus-support into the plugin.

Good Luck!
