[Kopete] Same Contact, Multiple Account Types

I noticed this image from the kopete website:…list_0_10_9.png

It looks like each contact in that list is listed only once, with the different account types all tied to that one contact. I know my terminology will be confusing, but you'll see what I mean if you look at that image.

Anyway, after seeing that image, I've been trying for hours now to figure out how to make my Kopete window look like the image. How is that accomplished?

Aha, Metacontacts. I saw that when trying to figure it out, but I couldn't make it work. I finally figured it out.

That's easy, just right-click on the protocol icon of a contact you want to group and there'll be an option change metacontact. After you clicked that, there'll be a popup letting you choose to which other contact you want to add the one you right-clicked on.
