This app is really great !
Its slim and has support for a lot of IMs.

But i would apreciate a better GPG-support. in fact i can't communicate with any of my contacts via GPG-encrypted messages, if they do not use SIM. :-(

I have to agree with you. I can not communicate over GPG with anybody else who don't use SIM. For example communication over GPG with users of Kopete is unpossible.

Would be great if sim would go with the standard KDE toolbar configuration so that the user can change the icons (offline, group, sounds) to match the current icon theme. Also it would be great if the icons' size in the toolbar and in the contacts list would be adjustable, those tiny icons aren't optimal for everyone.

I think, you forgot to change the Occupied icon. There is still the same icon like before.

This is now the instant messenger I use after Kopete started hanging and crashing again. Nice to have alternatives. SIM is quite a good app actually. What I dont like is its secretiveness. You can hardly find information about it. No changelog on its website, no proper documentation and so on. In combination with its non-standard geeky interface this becomes really a problem more often than not.
For instance, I just could not find out how to erase my history for privacy reasons. I finally found the folder SIM stores this in under .kde/share/apps and erased that one. :-/

Hi,i installed sim and used for a few days . in fact i liked it very much but then i added an msn contact and sim crashed. When i run the program again i saw that my icq contacts have been deleted but msn contacts were still there.

I checked icq2to online and saw that all contacts were gone :(

A bad bug or bad luck??

There is only one thing, that sticks me to kopete: Metacontacts.

If one contact has multiple accounts, these can be moved into one meta account. The IM then automatically selects the protocol that is currently available. If more than on protocol for a contact is available it chooses the one, that has given a higher priority in the settings.

Sorry, but this is possible,
you only have to move one account to another and than a popup asks you if you want to make a meta contact... ;-)

For some time something hold me away from trying SIM. I would screw my ICQ account several time with kopete which would display me ICQ numbers instead of real names, i have gaim crash on me every time i do something like click cancel while it connects. This app is really usable! Ok, i miss dcop and fancy message popup or message count in taskbar but lots of others things are so cool, i got addicted to them, such as "typing" icon in the buddy list or that buddy list disapear if i don't use it, "quote" message feature is cool, all menus are customizable ....

I'd love to see DCOP binding which would do the same thing as middle-button on the tray when it's flashing - popup incoming message, would use with global shortcut.

Thanks, Vladimir, best IM so far.

I configured OSD to look like miranda's popup in windows or kopete's popup:
give OSD a background, lower right corner, and voila!

U even can have different colors for contact groups or even single users, and double clicking the popup opens the message.

Does anybody know how to change the strange behaviour of chat window in SIM 0.9.3 in KDE 3.2.
When the message arrives and the chat window is already opened in another desktop then after double click on SIM icon in tray, the chat window moves the the current desktop. But it is in background (behind other applications). It should be in foreground and active. It was working good in older versions of SIM :-(

Thanks for any help.

Try this.

Make sure that in Sim's Setup -> Interface -> Messages -> New message, you have selected Open and raise.

Now, right click on any Window's title bar and select Configure Window Behavior. In the configuration box that pops up, select Advanced on the left side. Set Focus stealing prevention level to None. This solved this problem for me.

YMMV.
