I love the theme, but if someone starts a conversation with me and says something, I can't see what they type. No speech bubble or text appears. It does appear, however, if they talk after I've said something.

So I download your Pure style, and it had the same problem, but if I used Pure_single it worked fine.

How can I fix this issue with Clear? Or could you just code a Clear_single theme?

Good work by the way, thanks.

Hey, this theme is awesome! Thank's a lot for the great work! :-) There is one little thing I noticed (maybe a problem with my setup?): The photo ratio seems to be fixed 60x52 (as far as I understand main.css), but the photos assigned in the kde addressbook are not, so they are shown deformed. Is there a way of dynamically adapting the ratio to that of the image or maybe just display non-square-images centered in the square field leaving an empty border? Greetings Mo

I have this:




/home/marcos/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/data/Clear//home/marcos/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/data/Clear/


No effect, can someone paste here the code please ?

This is the most elegant and beautiful theme for Kopete, however when it runs for a few minutes my Kopete starts to act strange - as if it was running out of system resources, or something similar.

Put all images in /home/YOUR_USERNAME/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/data/Clear/

line : < xsl:param name="appdata"/>
replaced by : < !-- < xsl:param name="appdata"/> -->

line : < !-- < xsl:variable name="data-path">file:///< xsl:value-of select="$appdata"/>Clear/< /xsl:variable> -->
replaced by : < xsl:variable name="data-path">file:///home/YOUR_USERNAME/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/data/Clear/< /xsl:variable>

Caution : I think you need to REMOVE SPACE after the < if you copy paste my lines

Hello,

this theme was working perfectly with kopete from kde 3.4, but I moved to 3.5 (kopete 0.11) and now this theme doesn't work anymore (no icons)

Are there any instructions on how to use Clear with kopete 0.11?

Thanks in advance,
Norberto

make this change in ~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/Clear.xml

<!-- <xsl:param name="appdata"/> -->
<!-- if the previous statement doesn't work try this one : -->
<xsl:variable name="appdata">home/ash/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles/data/</xsl:variable>

replace "ash" with your username...

is it possible to change this style so the avatars are no longer "forced" into the square? it looks stupid with rectangular pictures.

Kopete imports the style file all right, but will not show any of the images. Can you help me with this?

I had to copy the files into

~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/styles

to get it working (I believe Kopete copies the xls file, but you have to copy the "data" folder manually). Now it works fine.
Hope this helps. Jan

this is a very nice theme :) i think kopete needs more themes that are at this level of visual quality :D anyway.. there is a bug with this.. if you have the option "Automatically open a chat window when someone starts a conversation" checked off for MSN, it only shows "User has started a conversation with you" it doesn't show any messages or anything after that.. you may want to take a look at this.. i'll just turn off the feature for now until this is fixed tho :D

Hi,

thanks for this great theme.

Unfortunately, there is a bug regarding multiple highlighted messages: sending more then one highlighted message causes displaying that message in a new balloon _and_ in the previous existing balloons containing highlighted messages itself.

Maybe it's been discussed but it's way too difficult for me. But when I installed this theme there are no pictures of the clock and the info sign. Does anyone know how to solve this problem.
P.S.: I have this with other Kopete themes too.
