Kopete doesn't display my text style.


I am having a problem setting my output font for Kopete. I went into Configure Kopete and changed my font under the Colors & Fonts section of Appearance. I changed it to a blue Verdana font, but it does not display it when I am talking to people online. I asked a friend if my font was being displayed on their end, and they said it was just plain black font. Do I need to set something else, or create a new chat windows style?

I'm guessing you are using AIM. Unfortunately it seems that Kopete doesn't have support for rich text on the AIM protocol (maybe others too), so you can't setup colors and stuff to be used.

I have found a work around if you want to use a specific color, go into Configure Plugins -> Text Effect -> remove all the colors except the one you want (make sure Text Effect is enabled too), and click "Change global text foreground color" (don't know if thats required), and uncheck "Check color every letter" and also uncheck "Change color every word".

I've been hoping the developers would implement rich text support on the AIM protocol, and even tried myself (I wasn't able to figure out any way to even enable the buttons in the rich text toolbar).
