Description:

Yakuake is a drop-down terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology.


--- What's new ---

2.9.9:
Yakuake 2.9.9 is feature, bugfix and general maintenance release. The most significant new features are the introduction of silence/activity monitoring options for terminals and the addition of Get Hot New Stuff support for making it easier to download new Yakuake skins. Various little tweaks to the window behavior have been done, from auto-retracting the Yakuake window when the last session is closed to additional placement fixes in multi-monitoring setups with interesting desktop panel arrangements. Script authors will appreciate the once again expanded D-Bus APIs. Syncing the default shortcuts to changes made in Konsole and a smattering of other little fixes round things out, and finally Yakuake now depends on KDE Platform version 4.7.1 or higher.

Have a look at the changelog for additional details not mentioned here.

Changelog:

Changes in 2.9.9:
* Yakuake now sports a standard KDE "Configure Notifications..." item in its menu. The startup notification popup configuration has moved there, and newly-added notification events covered below are found there.
* It is now possible to monitor sessions (or individual terminals within them) for activity or silence. See the tab context menu or the keyboard shortcuts to toggle monitoring, and the new "Configure Notifications" dialog mentioned above to configure what happens when activity or silence are detected in a monitored session or terminal (by default a desktop notification popup is triggered for each).
Note that repeated activity in a terminal does not result in repeated notifications for that terminal: After the first notification, activity monitoring has to be disabled or reenabled, or the active session switched, or the window closed - only then another activity notification will be shown.
* Support for Get Hot New Stuff for skins has been added. See the new "Get New Skins..." button below the skin list in the Appearance page of the config dialog.
* When the window is set not to show on all virtual desktops and is not residing on the current virtual desktop, but is open (i.e. set to stay open regardless of focus loss), the Open/Retract action normally used to either retract it, or, when the option to also use the action to focus the window is enabled, cause the window manager to switch to the virtual desktop the window resides on. The former case, i.e. when the option to also use the action to focus the window is disabled, has now been changed to move the window to the current virtual desktop and focus it, rather than retract it.
* Yakuake now automatically retracts after the last open tab closes.
* A number of default keyboard shortcuts have been changed to reestablish consistency with Konsole, which introduced changed defaults in KDE Software Compilation v4.6.
* Invoking the window manager maximization feature now results in a Yakuake window with 100% width and height instead of the unresized window getting moved to the top-left corner of the screen. However, restore is not supported as it doesn't easily fit with Yakuake's window size state model.
* Tweaks to the code Yakuake uses to make itself the active window when invoked should improve compatibility with more window managers, particularly xfwm.
* The D-Bus API has been expanded further to cover the new activity and silence monitoring options, as well as with additional methods related to retrieving information about the keyboard input enabled state for sessions and terminals.
* The addSession* and split* D-Bus calls now return the id of the newly-created session or terminal, or -1 if creating a new session or terminal was not possible.
* Made sure that the activeTerminalId D-Bus call always returns something useful after an addSessionTwo*/Quad call, even when the window is closed while the call is made. Previously, activeTerminalId could return -1 in this situation because there technically is no active terminal until the window is opened and a focus event causes one to become active. Now the terminal that will receive focus once the window is opened is immediately declared the active terminal.
* The "Help" button was removed from the configuration dialog since there currently is no handbook included.
* Fixes to the window geometry and placement calculation in multi-screen setups and with panels located on screen edges other than the bottom edge.
* Fixed a bug causing the "Disable Keyboard Input -> For This Session" checkbox in the context menu of a multi-terminal session to become enabled when keyboard input was disabled for any of the individual terminals, rather than only when all terminals have it disabled (i.e. what enabling the checkbox manually actually does).
* Fixed errors in the tab stop order in several pages of the configuration dialog.
* Fixed the message shown on stderr when Yakuake is already running to refer to toggling rather than opening the window, since that is what a repeated execution actually does - if the window is already open, it will be closed at this time.
* Code cleanups, including porting away from recently deprecated KDE Platform APIs for future-compatibility.
* The KDE4FAQ document included in the tarball has been updated.
* Yakuake now depends on KDE Platform 4.7.1 or newer.

I love Yakuake, but i have the problem that it doesn't save my comands when i e.g. reboot.

When i close Yakuake manualy it saves everything.

My fault, or a missing feature?

This depends on how the shell you're using choses to manage its history file. If you're using bash, it automatically overwrites its history file on exit, which makes it troublesome for multiple bash instances to co-exist. You can fix this by adding the following to your ~/.bashrc:

shopt -s histappend
PROMPT_COMMAND='history -a'

This will tell bash to append to the history file rather than overwrite it, and write out to the history file whenever the prompt is rendered.

With other shells, you'll have to look into their respective manuals.

Bottom line, this is related to the shell you're using, not Yakuake specifically.

 Idea: Import path

It would be terribly usefull to be able to switch to a folder fastly. Maybe by pressing a defined key and then clicking on konqueror window changes to the folder in which konqueror is currently...
just an idea :)

 Re: Idea: Import pat

Not a bad idea. With some work, you could set this up right now: You can tell Yakuake to run a command in the currently active terminal via a DCOP call 'dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRunCommandInSession "<some command>"' where <some command> could be, for example "cd /path/to/folder". Similarly, one can ask Konqueror via DCOP what folder it is displaying at the time. The next step would be combining the two in a small script and binding it to a hotkey via KDE's Input Actions.

Depending on how reliably it can be realized, something like that could perhaps be added to Yakuake itself further down the road.

 what beta?

 
 by 747419 on: May 6 2007
 
Score 50%

I haven't tested Yakuake-beta long enough to say it's stable, but so far it works without any misbehaviour. The new actions and options add some great functionality, I do esp. enjoy the fullscreen-mode and resizing Yakuake with shortcuts, which is useful with split windows. The new focusing behaviour is a good idea, too.

I used to have a problem when having 'export TMOUT=900' written in my /etc/.bashrc.local (to automatically close root-shells after 15 minutes of inactivity) - this used to crash Yakuake, but now it works!

But:

- Since resizing can be set by shortcuts, moving Yakuake should be too

- The shortcut-setup could be moved to 'configure Yakuake'

- Aren't there any decent skins except the default one?

Nevertheless, Yakuake is better than ever! Thank you!

> what beta?

One of the reasons it's labeled "beta" is there needs to be a quiet period without string additions/changes so KDE's multiple dozen translations teams can catch up - I thought I'd get something out first, to gather feedback, and the final will follow once the localization efforts have progressed.


> Since resizing can be set by shortcuts, moving Yakuake should be too

Good point.


> The shortcut-setup could be moved to 'configure Yakuake'

All KDE applications have a "Settings" menu on their menu bar with seperate entries for "Configure <Application Name>" and "Configure Shortcuts" - the design of the Yakuake menu reflects that. I'd like to remain consistent there :).

Kudos for the new release. It comes with lots of changes and bugfixes too. I tell you, I don't go by a single day without running it. It's unobtrusive command line editing at the press of a button. Great stuff!

Oh and by the way, why not mention something about this beta on yakuake's KDE Extragear site? At the moment it is very thin on content.

The Extragear pages are supposed to list the last stable release, respectively, so that's unfortunately not a place to publicize the beta.

I intend to open a new Yakuake website on http://yakuake.kde.org/ at some point, but with a limited time budget, coding has so far won out over website-making. I'll get to it eventually :).

 True Transparency

Score 50%

Hi,

A new version of Yakuake, sweet. I haven't tried it yet, but judging from the screenshots, there are some really hot new features.

Something I would love is true transparency. There is a bug report on bugs.k.o, with a patch: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135870
However, it didn't work very well for my, as you can read in the last comment in the link I posted.

Now, a checkbox to enable real transparency and a slider to change opacity in Yakuake, that would be awesome.

Thanks for your hard work, keep it up!

Support for dynamic translucency via the X11 COMPOSITE extension will most likely have to wait for KDE 4 because the Konsole KPart component in KDE 3 is not quite cut out for it. The Konsole technology is being widely refurbished in KDE 4 and will also address this need. Working with COMPOSITE / ARGB visuals is generally more viable with KDE4/Qt4 technology.

I'm aware of the popularity of the feature however, and it's definitely on the agenda for the future.

Yakuake were already the best console out there, so this beta slaughters the competition. The interface has improved a lot and the new usability will certainly come in handy. Great work!

I've got some things that I'd like to see in upcoming releases:

· An easy way to see if Yakuake is focused or not, e.g. by dimming the skin a bit. Maybe it can already be done with the skins?

· The Settings context menu (right click on the console body) should be moved to the Configure Yakuake dialog. I think that would be more consistent with other KDE apps, and so newcomers would have an easier time with it.

Thanks for this great release!

I think so too, but unfortunately I have basically no power about that context menu, it's provided by the Konsole KPart component. The KPart doesn't have sufficient interfaces to reimplement the menu externally either, unfortunately.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
