Include or support KMess 2 in an official repository

Feature state

Package Wishlist


For the people who don't know, KMess is a good KDE MSN client

I know we have Kopete for that, but KMess is really much user firendly than kopete and has a lot more of features for MSN network, like MSN Plus! support and winks.


  • add KDE:KDE4:Community to repositories: zypper ar [destination of KDE:KDE4:Community] repositoryalias (for example KDE4_Community_repo)
  • refresh repositories: zypper ref
  • Install kmess: zypper install kmess
  • at the moment destination is http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/ [Version] this can may be different at future moments

I put this because we know that MSN is the most used network, and not all people like minimalistic clients like Kopete, people like my mother, sister and girlfriend really don't like clients like Pidgin/Kopete, they only use MSN, and want a full featured MSN client.

KMess 2 is now in RC, but is really stable since some months ago, instead of that, the stable release is scheaduled for some of this weeks. There's a package in packman, but it gets an update only when there's a new release or once a months.

Thank you!

KMess 2.0 release is in the KDE:KDE4:Community repositories.

Oh, really thank you! Is possible to have it by default maybe in a next openSUSE release? Maybe 11.2 or 11.3? What's neccesary for that?

Yes, thank you, i install KMess compiling form SVN, but it would be good to have that app in an official repository, so anyone can have it, not all people know how to search packages in a user repo.

I'm calling this 'Done' because KMess is available KDE:KDE4:Community is part of the official online repos that are added by 'Add Community Repos' in Installation sources - no searching required.

We won't include it on the default install because we choose one default Instant Messenger - this is for usability and install media space reasons. Kopete is this since it is multiprotocol and the upstream default.

Yes, yes, is Done, i only ask if it was possible.

I thought it was possible because we have Konqueror + Dolphin, and maybe Arora in 11.2 (i see it in Ideas for 11.2), but is really nice to have it now available in official repos
