I used licq for a long time. But know I use kopete with icq and aim.
Works fine!

I now use gaim for msn and kopete for icq, gaim because kopete doesn't support msn protocol proxying. I've used licq for quite a long period but now kopete is sufficient. And often for instance when I need file transfers I use IRC

Most of my friends are on AIM, so I use Gaim to IM with them.

Most of my friends are on AIM or MSN. I use Gaim for both. For IRC, I use Xchat.

AIM, MSN for only 3 people.
Uses the Netscape IM (AIM), GAIM, AMSN, or Everybuddy in LindowsOS.
I also have a Yahoo account

I would use SIM-ICQ but I can't connect anymore :(

I use GAIM now and I did a heavy sorting out of my list into different categories, etc., and then when I used normal AIM on a Windows machine, it says it can't get my buddy list....

back in the day i used to use licq and really liked it. but then a bajillion IM networks appeared and it became quickly apparent that a multiprotocol client was what i was going to need. every single one i tried was broken or somehow completely horrible.

fortunately kopete finally came along and it's everything i need. no, it isn't xchat when it comes to IRC, but it's good enough for the chatting i do, and its support for the other networks i use is great. so i'm a happy camper.

it still has a ways to go on several fronts before its The Killer IM client, but when it is released with KDE 3.2 i have no doubt that is exactly what it will be.

I've been using Psi for a time now and find it works fine to keep me in touch with all of my friends on MSN, Yahoo, ICQ & Jabber. In particular I find the intergration with the system tray really nice!

Original von Kenneth

Most of my friends are on AIM, so I use Gaim to IM with them.

same here, but now with the new Kopete that has some major bug fixes i am now happy. also im glad they setup a debian mirror for kopete on :)

gaim is still good but i prefer kopete because its intergration with KDE is greater.

I use Jabber, its always been Psi for me, but I've also tried kopete and konverse.
Are there any other QT based Jabber clients that I should look at?

Re: IM's

Psi is not really feature-rich jabber client, but I like it for usability.
And again, an integration with proprietary IMs is good enough.

Kopete & other ICQs on KDE

Have been trying numbers of ICQ clients for KDE, but recently installed Kopete, and wow :-) Finally something that just works, and looks okay too .. Currently using 0.5 but 0.6 looks to be even better!
So long and thanks for all the fish !


Monday, February 17th 2003, 1:23am


I have a ICQ, AIM, and a Yahoo account, I'm just waiting for the yahoo plugin before giving kopete a serious try, until then i keep using gaim. I do like the looks of kopete, but i don't want to run 2 separate IM clients when 1 can do everything.
