Twitter clients for KDE4

For obvious reasons I’ve been investigating twitter clients for KDE4.

So far I found 3 (native) clients.

There’s a twitter plasmoid which is very basic, it only shows your oen timeline and you can post tweets. nothing else. Haven’t found a URL for that one, at least on openSUSE it’s in OBS Factory.

Then there’s qwit, a qt-based fully featured client, with replies and all the other stuff, which is pretty good for me but on my wife’s laptop prevents her from logging out cleanly from KDE4.

Last is choqok, fully kde4 integrated, seems pretty good so far. Going to test some more.

KDE 4.3.1

Now that KDE 4.3.1 is out, the whole thing becomes actually usable…
… still, I just wish they hadn’t removed so much functionality that I was used to have.
Current list of grievances:

  • Amaroks "smart playlists" are still dumb
  • Amarok has lost all kind of k3b-related features
  • dragon replaced kaffeine… too bad that dragon can’t even do something as simple as a playlist :/
  • No way to find out the filename of the current wallpaper from a shell like you could in KDE3 with dcop
  • ever so often plasma widgets forget their settings
  • kontact/kmail crashes on startup when you had to quit it because it started to ignore your keyboard
