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.

Is it possible to move the yakuake window to the center of the screen?

Using KDE's window manager kwin with its default settings, you can move the Yakuake window (as well as any other window) by pressing the ALT key on your keyboard and dragging it. However, if you close the window, it will subsequently reopen at the top of the screen.

 Remove the titlebar

 
 by kevkim55 on: Sep 1 2007

Is there a way I can remove those 1 pixel side borders and the title bar at the bottom completely and keep only the terminal part ?

I would prefer a terminal that is really transparent with absolutely no borders, no bars, no decorations, no strings of any kinds and would fill entire desktop except the kicker bar.

There's a patch available to provide real transparency to konsole, wouldn't it be possible to use that same code for yakuake ?

Thanks for any response.

Keep up the magnificent work ! :-)

The size of the border can be set in the skin theme file, i.e. yes, it can be removed. The title bar currently can not, pending an improved skinning system.

XComposite-based "real" translucency will be provided in the KDE 4 version. In KDE 3 there's a technical problem that prevents it from working properly.

Thanks a million for the quick reply and your time. I really appreciate it.

Yes, I could rid the border by setting the width=0 in the title.skin file. Thanks for the tip.

I would wait forward for the release which would let me rid the title bar completely and renders with real transparency.

Thanks again.

Sorry bothering you again !

Where does Yakuake stores its settings ? Each time I launch Yakuake I'm forced to reconfigure it to set things like, Schema, Bell etc. Is there a way I can have Yakuake remember these settings ? I couldn't find anything relevant in Yakuakerc.

Also, is there a way I can specify the width and heights in pixels so I can get the exact required with and height ?

Similarly, is there a way to specify the transparency in percentage like some KDE (konsole for eg.) apps do ?

Thanks for any reply.

Kevin

Everything inside the frame is not actually Yakuake, but the Konsole KPart component, including the context menu. The Konsole KPart stores its settings in ~/.kde/share/config/konsolepartrc.

Note that you need to also click "Save as Default" in the context menu for any session-local changes to be stored and propagated to new sessions.

No.

The level of translucency for the terminal area is stored inside the Konsole color schemes. You can edit them using Konsole.

Hi, first, thank you for your good application. I am the translator to spanish of extragear-utils. For KDE4 you are no put the .pot for we translate it to languages. Why?. there is desktop-yakuake, but there is not yakuake.

There is no KDE 4 port of Yakuake yet, i.e. there is no code for the scripty bot to create a .pot from in trunk at the moment, only in the KDE 3 branch (branches/extragear/kde3/utils/yakuake). If you take a look at that branch you will notice there are plenty of KDE 3 Extragear apps that do not have a KDE 4 version in trunk yet. Yakuake will be ported in due time, and then there will be a .pot automatically created for you.

PS.: For KDE development-related things please contact me at hein (AT) kde (DOT) org and don't write comments here.

 Konsole parameters

 
 by xellos on: Sep 14 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi.

Is the Konsole part of Yakuake executed as some library call or is it a system call? If it's the latter is there a way of defining parameters that should be passed to konsole?

I.E. Konsole distributed with kubuntu and kde 3.5.7 can take "--real-transparency" argument to make it ARGB transparent instead of using desktop background. If there was a way of passing this argument from yakuake, it could quickly do the trick everyone's waiting for.

> Is the Konsole part of Yakuake executed as some library call or is it a system call?

Yakuake embeds the Konsole technology via the KDE KPart component model. You can find information about the KPart technology on http://techbase.kde.org/.

Unfortunately, in KDE 3, the Konsole application and the KPart component it offers are far removed from one another in terms of the feature set they offer, and the interface that the Konsole KPart offers to an application like Yakuake is also rather limited. Furthermore, the KPart implements it own background painting, and thus the "--real-transparency" argument does not apply to it and is not relevant here.

Please note that Yakuake 2.8 requires KDE 3.4 or higher (KAction::ActivationReason is available since KDE 3.4).

Then maybe it should be checked in configure script or written somewhere in INSTALL (I haven't found it there).

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
