Subject description: KDE pdf viewer and IM messenger
 

There seems to be much struggle with finding suitable pdf viewer for puppy. After foxit made that linux version we hoped that it will run as smooth as win version, but it seems it still needs much enhancing.
Well, when it comes to KDE apps they seem to be not only fancy looking but very functional too, the only disadvantage is that they need lots of kde libs.
I made this pets from debian packages, there are 26 MBs of kdelibs with all dependencies and less then 1 MB for kpdf pet and libpaper.
I tested this on clean 4.2 livecd boot so you should not have more dependencies, it seems to run stable and render pages very fast, copying text to clipboard works, didn't try printing cause I don't have printer.
Here are needed pets if anyone wants to give it a go:

kdelibs4c2a.pet 26 MB
libpaper1_1.1.23nmu1_i386.pet 15 KB
kpdf_3.5.9-3_i386.pet 829 KB

---------------------------------------------------------------

Kopete

For kopete, download above kdelibs pet, then download following pets:

libgadu3_1.8.0_r592-3_i386.pet
libgsmme1c2a_1.10-13_i386.pet
libmeanwhile1_1.0.2-3_i386.pet
kopete_3.5.10-2_i386.pet

Known issues I encountered:
If you set it to remember your msn password you will have troubles connecting to msn on startup, or maybe this is just case with me?

Once you have those base libs adding applications is just like any other foreign application...the odd dependancy may be needed. I added khexedit from the debian package with no problem. Someone did a stripped down kde base for installing k3b...I recall he got it pretty small..
