Is there a 'psychic mode' plugin for kopete? Psychic mode is a pidgin plugin that opens up the chat dialog as soon as someone starts talking with you, before message is sent. i'm looking for the same functionality in kopete.

how should i compile that? there are no compiling instructions... but it seems to be exactly what i want! thanks – barraponto Apr 29 '10 at 16:33
built it with <code><pre>cmake .</pre></code> but still nothing happened... maybe it's the 0.1 status... – barraponto Apr 29 '10 at 19:24
haven't used this as I'm not a kopete user, wish I could be of more help. I tried to look this up if there was a specific install procedure but I couldn't find any. A possible lead could be to find out how to install plugins to kopete. – rzlines Apr 29 '10 at 20:50 this thread is about installing another plugin to kopete if its of any use. – rzlines Apr 29 '10 at 20:52

In Configuration->Behavior->General, there is "Message Handling": "Open messages instantly".

but it doesn't actually open the message when people type, but when people send... i want it to open whenever people start typing (a.k.a. psychic mode) – barraponto Jan 18 '10 at 13:44
Switch to Google Wave? – ℝaphink Jan 19 '10 at 17:26
Or back to Pidgin – heavyd Apr 29 '10 at 6:30
