No tablet would be complete without instant messaging. Thanks to awesome bachelor thesis work we had a non-working mockup of an active client. This active client remains separate from our desktop work.
In recent weeks I’ve been transforming this code to go from a non-working prototype to something working with real contact lists and text chats.
How to set up the latest ktp-active
Install the latest version of plasma-mobile-components. Personally I use project-neon for this to keep a separate environment.
Install the latest (git master, not 0.6.1) of ktp-common-internals
You will need to open system settings and change your workspace theme to “Air Mobile”.
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/ktp-active
Change directory to application/package and run “plasmoidviewer”
You will need to set up your accounts using either our desktop Accounts KCM Module, or manually using the mc-tool command line tool.
This sounds awesome, how can I get involved?
See our KTp wiki page http://community.kde.org/KTp/Getting_Involved
We have a wiki page for the active project, which lists some tasks to be done. We are not accepting bug reports on ktp-active at this point.
Ping me (d_ed) on IRC for details.
