Code? Binaries? Anything? Even though I don't use chat much, this looks cool. Maybe I'll start using chat with this

You may try matchbox-keyboard. You will find arm binary in XTerm package.

No, once started it will be displayed on the upper layer all the time. You would have to find a way to hide it, if you need more space. Maybe native kindle keyboard would be better solution in this case.

I just gave it a try and it works ok with matchbox-keyboard.

Edit: Now I see it also works with native kindle keyboard. I misunderstood your post. Thought that kindle keyboard doesn't work. It is just that it doesn't hide.

Would it be possible to get this to work for the non-touch version of Kindles (ie, Kindle 1-4)?

If not, for those interested, the following two websites work on the Kindle well enough when opened through the webkit browser:

For the time being it even doesn't work on KT. I tried it with my jabber account. It connected, fetched roster, displayed list of my buddies and everything seemed ok. But when I tried to start chat it segfaulted. Then I went to sleep.

@Ehhh
Did you have same problem?

I haven't tested jabber yet. I'm working with ICQ. I compiled SSl , and ICQ was started yesterday. Now i need to fix the issue with keyboard. The keyboard should appear/disaapear on the screen when the focus is on textbox.

I have only KT, this is one reason, why it is difficult to support these Kindles.

I agree with @wl.

I think we can handle having the keyboard on screen all the time in an IM app. The only real time I can think to remove it would be scrolling back through chat history.

Equally though, it'd be useful to have a filter/search system in place, which is immediately operated from the keyboard.

Just a suggestion.

I can't get this to run! it gave an error for missing library called 'libpurple.so.0' Long story short, I finally found the ARM version in the maemo port of Pidgin. Tried it again but now gave me the following error, so I gave up:

Code:
error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Could you please upload something that works? There are so many shared libs missing?!
