Re: Kopete "hangs" in Kubuntu 10.10
Same problem here running Kopete 4.6.1a on KDE 4.6. I noticed a pattern: having Kopete's main window closed it can be reopened from the Message Indicator applet at any time and I get notified about who logs in/out. It works flawlessly until I chat for the first time. After closing the chat window for my first conversation, Kopete is still running ("ps" shows the process), it is still shown in the Message Indicator applet, but no longer responds to the open command nor does it fire any notifications.
Solution: kill the process and start the application again.
