How To

This page is obsolete. Please check here

Manage Group settings

  • on the applet: click outside the desktop so the settings button will show for the desktop, click on it and then click on the "tool button" for the applet.
  • on the application: select Groups on the menu

Manage Contacts in a group

  • on the applet double click on group icon
  • on the application select Groups in the menu and then click on the right most button for the group you want to edit (the column is called "Contacts" and the number on the button represents the number of contacts currently assigned to the group)

Customize Interface

  • Most of the windows can have their style customized by changing external configuration files very similar to CSS files used by web sites. You can find the files on /home/user/.mycontacts
  • The applet currently does not include any stylesheets but you can change its main color using the settings on the MyContacts application
  • In case you want to reset the style to the stock files there is an option on the MyContact's application menu: select "Settings" and then click on "reset skin". All your changes will be replaced with the stock style sheets.
  • Please be aware that a new release may overwrite your changes in order to add new style classes. It is recommended that you always keep a copy of your modified CSS files on a separate folder.
  • For the exact syntax of the CSS files refer to the Qt documentation

Different Skype Buttons based on status

include on the contact_landscape.css and contact_portrait.css files classes like:

SkypeButton#offline {
    background-color: qlineargradient(x1: 0, y1: 0, x2: 0, y2: 1,
                               stop: 0 #700000, stop: 1 #000000);
SkypeButton#online {
    background-color: qlineargradient(x1: 0, y1: 0, x2: 0, y2: 1,
                               stop: 0 #007000, stop: 1 #000000);

Reset Interface to Default

  • shutdown application (if running)
  • run on x-terminal:
rm /home/user/.mycontacts/*.css
  • restart application
