[KOPETE] ICQ History to Kopete Logs Parser

Hello everybody,
i programmed a java console application which converts your ICQ 5.1 history into a Kopete compatible xml format.

What you need:
  1. java runtime environment (@debian: sun-java6-jre)
  2. your icq 5.1 history folder (C:\Documents & Settings\[Your Username]\Application Data\ICQLite\HistoryDB\[Your ICQ Nr]\)
  3. your icq nr
  4. my icq2kopete_xml_parser.jar and the lib folder (see attachment)
    Usage (example):
  5. copy your icq history to /tmp/ => should look like /tmp/[Your ICQ Nr]/[Many other icq numbers...]
  6. copy icq2kopete_xml_parser.jar to /tmp/
  7. copy lib folder to same dir as icq2kopete_xml_parser.jar
  8. start application with "java -jar icq2kopete_xml_parser.jar [Your icq Nr] /tmp/ /tmp/kopete"
  9. copy folder /tmp/kopete/[Your Icq Nr] to /home/[Your username]/.kde/share/apps/kopete/logs/ICQProtocol/
  10. ready!

    You can also convert your history from older icq versions, like ICQ 2003b Pro. To do so, you first have to convert your history with "History Converter" from to the new ICQ 5.1 history format. Then procede as written above.

    Please report bugs to me.
