Light Hawk is a KDE Jabber client. It is unfinished, but I have been using it every day for some time now.

Those interested in following or helping development should use GNU arch 1.2 or later. My archive is and is available at The branch to get is lighthawk--mainline.

To compile the arch version of Light Hawk you will also need to get and symlink that into the top level of lighthawk as "admin".

After that it's mostly an ordinary KDE application (run gmake -f Makefile.cvs to get a configure script). You must run that configure script in a separate directory, though, arch to cooperate later.

Main features:

  • Roster management
  • Subscriptions
  • Chat messages
  • Receving normal messages
  • Multiple user profiles
  • Session management cooperation
  • Logging
  • KNotify support (including sounds)
  • Invisible status
  • Away messages
  • IPv6, Proxies, and other KDE network features
