Kopete is a multi-protocol, free softwareinstant messagingclient released as part of the KDE Software Compilation. Although it can run in numerous environments, it was designed for and integrates with the KDE Plasma Workspaces. Kopete was started because ICQ blocked Licq from their network in 2001.[5] According to the original author, Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett, the name comes from the Chilean Spanish word copete, meaning “a drink with your friends”.[6][7] Kopete has been nominated for multiple awards.[8][9] The designated successor is KDE Telepathy from the KDE RTCC Initiative.
