Jabber supports it though.
Not exactly offline, but not showing "on"line. Usually kopete and others only show people marked online, unless you show the "offline" (including invisible) contacts, the point being that no one shows in either case unless they have already been added to the list. Not being able to open a "new message" screen is like a catch 22.
Dunno mate, sounds like you're trying to find the 'Add contact' button
Catch 22 you'd have to explain, never heard of it before.

Also apparently some people use Paltalk, and I don't know if that is available for Sabayon. I will look into Jabber. I think there's also one called Mercury but don't know anything about it.
IRC: X-Chat! Freenode, #sabayon for support, #sabayon-social for smoking, drinking and talking absolute nonsense.
Guess where you find me most
I did a search in both Entropy and Portage, no Paltalk, no Mercury.
Both applications I know absolutely nothing about...
You could do a package request, but I forgot how and where. Think the bugzilla but I'm not sure.
It must be somewhere on the forum, but if you don't mind I'll leave the search to you this time

Thanks very much for your help.
Absolutely no problem, hope you learned something
Oh and please, should the KDE team be able to help you, post the solution back here so it might help others, and satisfy the curiosity that's starting to surface here...
(Oh and don't forget the [Solved]-rule )
