Kopete

Kopete is a powerful multiprotocol instant messaging system. It supports a plugin-based architecture, making it possible to extend the package with a variety of additional features. Some of the existing features include history, translation tools, text effects, and cryptography, among others. Because it is part of KDE, it fits nicely into the desktop and docks into the system tray when not in use. It uses both sound notifications and passive text alerts that let you continue working.

You'll find Kopete under your Internet submenu in the program launcher. It's program name is kopete, which means you can launch it from the shell or with your <Alt+F2> keyboard shortcut. The first time Kopete starts, the configure window pops up along with the main (currently empty) Kopete window (Figure 9-5).
