In my friend list on kopete, people's avatar are not clear, when I put my cursor on one of them, the preview appear and the avatar look perfect, is there anyway to fix that?

Dunno if this helps, but you can make the avatar a little bigger in the contact list.

Go to [settings->settings] in the contact window, then go to [appearance] and look for [screenmode of contact]. Activate the checkbox for using contact photo's and select the radio button for [detailed view].

That's because the person in question is Away. The brightness is raised for people who are Busy/Away. So that's not a bug... it's a feature (I hate to say that line, but it's the truth :) )
