Ultimamente la versión 2.0.3 de kmess ha estado fallando, espacialmente problemas de conexión y chrash relacionados con el cambio de imagen, aquí les dejo una lista de los problemas y nuevas cosas:

  • Added a small toggle button on the contact list to quickly enable/disable the “Now Listening” feature.
  • Implemented the new KDE4 system tray specification.
  • Added ability to drag-and-drop ink drawings from the conversation into the ink editor in order to be edited again.
  • Fixed bug which caused KMess to fail to connect, instead giving an “Invalid Command Parameter” error.
  • Fixed bug which caused the user’s display picture to be reset upon login.
  • Fixed bug where status was not changed from Idle upon wake up from sleep.
  • Updated many translations.
  • And various other smaller updates and fixes…

Para instalar la versión 2.0.4 agregamos el deposito de paquetes PPA kmess-packages:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kmess-packages/kmess-stable

$ sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 1D2EC123

Ahora actualice la lista de repositorios e instala el paquete:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install kmess

Y listo!! a chatiar de forma decente :).
