Kuote is an applet for the KDE panel, inspired by Gnome's Wanda the Fish. It displays an animated character (a fish by default), which pops up quotes generated by the fortune(6) program when clicked (and optionally shows them in tooltips, too).

Kuote supports kioslaves for both the animation file and fortune files (fortune directories still work from local filesystems only). This means that you can enter any URL, not only local file names.

Try for example this fortune file available over WWW: http://hektor.umcs.lublin.pl/~mikosmul/computing/inet-fortune
It contains only two quotes, so for testing purposes use it as the only fortune file or assign it a high probability if you want to actually see these fortunes.

Here are some key features of "Kuote":
support for user-defined animations (file format compatible with Wanda the Fish)
run fortune or any other program to generate quotes
fortune can be configured through the GUI

What's New in This Release:
added new animation: "See, Hear, Speak" (CC-BY-NC-SA license) - thanks to Mark Riedesel [Klowner]
added French translation (thanks to Nicolas Ternisien)
added "Next" button to fortune dialog
fixed a memory leak associated with dialog boxes
