can't install kopete in Fedora 17 with KDE 4.9

Hey guys,

I have a Fedora 17 installation. I upgraded KDE to 4.9 from KDE repository. I am trying to install kopete but kopete's version is 4.8.5 and it needs kdenetwork-common but complains that kdenetwork-common is version 4.9. How can i get it installed without downgrading to KDE 4.8?

Thank you in advance,

Corneliu

I'll guess you have to wait some days until kopete is updated too. Or give telepathy a try.

Thank you naraesk for helping,

I read about telepathy and I wanted to try it. I already checked the packages that have the string "telepathy" in their names. There is a bunch of them and I couldn't figure out which one is the main package. It seems to me that telepathy is more like a platform for messaging, not a messaging client in its own right. Am I wrong? Which telepathy package do I need to install?

Cheers,

Corneliu

There is a KDE telepathy client. It's weird the way the packages are in yum, but I think the one you want is "ktp-contact-list". Other relevant packages include "ktp-accounts-kcm,ktp-call-ui, ktp-contact-applet, ktp-contact-runner, ktp-kded-integration-module, ktp-presence-applet. The moral of the story is search for packages containing "ktp". For me it's listed as "KDE IM Contacts" in the menu.

Thank you, doorstop.
Installing ktp-contact-list did the trick. I will try it and see how good it is. One big point in its favor is that it doesn't have MySQL as dependency. I always hated kopete for that.
What kind of name is ktp? Why not kyerhyewg8wrege or some other esoteric name. Do I need to smoke something to guess that ktp-contact-list is a telepathy client?

ktp = shorthand for KDE Telepathy (in the past they'd used kde-telepathy-* which imo was actually better)
