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.

The KDE 4 codebase is located at '/trunk/extragear/utils/yakuake/' in the KDE SVN repository; the KDE 3 codebase is at '/branches/extragear/kde3/utils/yakuake'.

KDE 4 applications use CMake instead of autotools as build system.

Adapt the instructions on: http://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Development/Tutorials/CMake#Linux.2C_BSD.2C_and_other_Unix_Systems_2

And/or see: http://www.cmake.org/

one of the coolest apps for kde

F12... run my own shell... do some command tasks.... f12 again to hide it

so cool :)

maybe one day we can even have a wobbly animation (ie the window does not only pull out in a straight fashion, but also kinda "slits out" in a diagonal angle... as if someone would throw it a bit... maybe even with a "whush" sound effect)

 Grid view switch

Is there a key binding to switch between terminals when using four terminals in grid view?

Yes, there are "Previous Terminal" and "Next Terminal" actions that move focus between the terminals. The defaults are Ctrl+Shift+Up and Ctrl+Shift+Down, respectively. They can be changed in the Configure Shortcuts dialog, of course.

Thanks for the quick reply, another question: is it possible to configure a 4-konsole grid session in such a way, that each konsole would execute a different command on startup? I have 4 scripts to login to 4 different servers and start a screen session on each one, and it would be great to be able to do all that with a single click.

Sorry -- I thought I replied to this a while ago, but I must have closed the tab with the form or some such.

Currently, you can use the D-Bus interface to add a quad session and run commands in the sub-terminals. You could put that in a bash script and use it in your shell startup file, or bind it to a global hotkey via System Settings or similar.

I'm looking at adding session template editing functionality to the app itself in the future, though. It's on the todo.

You have three options:

1) If you upgrade to 2.9.1, running Yakuake a second time will open the window.

2) If you're using a KDE 4 version of Yakuake prior to 2.9.1, you can open the window via D-Bus: qdbus org.kde.yakuake /yakuake/window toggleWindowState

3) If you're running a KDE 3 version of Yakuake, you can open the window via DCOP: dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotToggleState

Thanks in advance.

You can use the DCOP (KDE 3) or D-Bus (KDE 4) interface to add new tabs, rename them, and run commands in them. You can make use of that fact to start Yakuake with a script that first runs the application, and then the DCOP/D-Bus commands to set up your tabs.

Built-in session management is planned, but is currently waiting for pending improvements to the Konsole KPart component Yakuake embeds (such as the ability to get the CWD out of it).

Thanks for reply. Now, yakuake is working pretty :)
I found a script here (https://dev.sitea.cc/Pub/scripts/tab) which adds tabs (and do more) for konsole/yakuake

 Yakuake Annoyances

That smarmy pseudo-transparency stuff is just flat ugly. There is another application, yeahconsole, that does the same job except without multiple tabs, and that awful transparency junk I can't turn off.

Actually, it was basically always possible to disable translucency by way of using a skin that doesn't use translucency in its graphics files (KDE-Look.org hosts a variant of the default skin without translucency, for example).

Then, 2.8.1 introduced a way to switch off translucency in the config file, as part of the improved support for non-KDE environments, where the pseudo-translucency implementation used by the KDE 3 version doesn't work and could lead to display versions.

The KDE 4 version (2.9 and higher) uses XComposite-based translucency rather than pseudo-translucency, and has a checkbox in the settings dialog to enable or disable the use of translucency.

So, you always had options, even if they might have been a bit labor-intensive in the past. In the newest versions, however, turning of translucency is very easy.

Of course you should use YeahConsole by all means if it floats your boat, but after a casual glance at it, it hardly seems that tabs are the only Yakuake feature it doesn't provide.


Cheers,
Sho

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
