This tutorial is a bit outdated, you can now also chat with other KDE users with Matrix. For more information, see the KDE community wiki. But you can still chat with IRC.

Chat in a Browser

解惑最好的一个办法是问其他使用者。IRC(Internet Relay Chat的缩写,“因特网中继聊天”)就是拿来干这个的。参与其中,可以帮到自己也能帮到别人。加入 KDE 聊天,这样做,

  • 选择昵称,然后登录
  • as channel, enter #kde or #the_channel_name_you_have_been_told_to_use
  • 输入防垃圾机器人的验证码
  • 点击 Connect

You will get a chance to talk with all other participants on the channel #kde.

全部频道列表在 这里。要加入另外一个频道(比如说 fedora),输入

/join #fedora-kde

If you want more configurability than a browser can give you, you can install IRC applications like Quassel or Konversation.

Setting up Konversation

Konversation is one of the easiest applications to set up that you'll ever meet. Most of the settings have defaults that are perfect, so here is what you need to do:

  • Find Konversation in your menu and launch it
  • The address of a Freenode server is already listed
  • Click Connect
  • Type the name that you want to be your username in the small box at the bottom left of the screen. If it is not already in use, it's yours for the session.
  • The long bar below the chat window is where you enter all your text, so first you need to join a channel. Enter, for example, /join #mageia-kde or /join #kde-es if you want to talk to KDE users in Spain.

That's it! You're on your way!

Some optional settings for your convenience

The channel you have joined shows in a tab along the bottom of the window. Right-click on the tab. Two helpful settings there are:

  • Enable Notifications (from the settings window you can tell it to play a sound if someone says your name, for instance)
  • Join on Connect - automatically connecting you with the channels you have found useful, next time you connect.

In the Settings menu there are a few very useful ones to consider:

  • Identities - there you can set the name that you prefer to use. It is wise to have a couple of variations (most people add an underscore at the end of their name, for instance, as a second choice) so that if your name is in use, Konversation will fall back to the second choice. You need not set anything in the other two tabs on that page.
  • Configure Notifications - choose a flashing taskbar, a sound, or "Mark taskbar entry" which colours the tab for the things you most need to be aware of. I would suggest these as your starting list:
    • Query (someone wants to have a private conversation with you)
    • Nickname written

You can add others later if you find them useful.
