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.

Thank you again ! I think I can't live without Yakuake now :)

don't know if this is possible but it could be great if Yakuake include a special skin which is automatically created from the plasma theme (at least the default panel or plasmoid background)

Should be doable (maybe ?) but dont know if an app can catch when plasma change his theme

I have a new skinning engine planned that will make theming more flexible (the current format is somewhat limited, especially with regard to element positions and the tab bar). Once that's in place, I can look into whether it's possible to derive from the active Plasma theme without being a Plasmoid. Maybe in the future, when the Plasma library moves to kdelibs (planned for 4.2, iirc), I can just use the library anyway. Then again, Yakuake already kind of depends on kdebase anyway (the Konsole KPart is a runtime, not build time dependency, however) ... anyhow, I'll look into it when the time comes.

 Yakuake always opens on login

 
 by th3doctor on: Jul 10 2008

Hi,

First off, thanks for developing yakuake... it's the best!

I have a small problem in KDE 4, though. Every time I log in, the whole window opens and I have to manually close it before doing anything else. It used to just display the popup notification and stay hidden in KDE 3. Is there any way to get the old behavior back as is? Is it a bug?

Thanks!

Starting with Yakuake 2.9.1, Yakuake can now be opened/closed by rerunning its executable (so you can e.g. put it on your panel both to start it, and to open/close it).

My assumption is that on login, "yakuake" is for some reason run twice in your system, so the first time starts it and the second time opens it. Perhaps it's both being restarted by KDE session management and you put it manually in your Autostart folder as well. Try to find and eliminate a second run of the executable during login.

Hope it helps.

 Global shortcut keys

 
 by alrua on: Aug 1 2008
 
Score 50%

In the KDE3 version of Yakuake, it is possible to bind multiple keys to the global show/hide action. In the KDE4 system settings module (where I finally tracked the global config down to), it is only possible to assign one global shortcut key.

I miss the ability to bind two keys (I bind one in each end of the keyboard, depending on which hand is free). Could this be made possible in the KDE4 version as well?

Is it possible to automatically open Yakuake in fullscreen mode?

And please give me a way to get rid of the window borders and the title bar :)

You can use the window-/application-specific rules capability of KDE's window manager, kwin, to open Yakuake - or any other application - automatically in fullscreen mode, or the kstart wrapper executable to similar effect.

The left-hand and right-hand border width is controlled by the skin definition file and thus changable. Disabling the window title bar is presently not an option; an in-the-works improved skinning engine may change that in the future.

Nice work! Would you be interested in having your skin included with Yakuake? (Credited to you, of course.)

Ok, I'll look into including it with the next release then. Thanks :-).

I'll get in touch with you once it's in, so we can figure out how to handle any future updates, etc.

 config file ?

 
 by kronophage on: Oct 23 2008

Is there a way to make yakuake start automatically in split screen mode to get a tiling WM feeling ?
I'm thinking of a .yakuakerc file or something...
Or would that happen in the konsolerc ?

 Re: config file ?

Yakuake has a D-Bus interface (or DCOP for older KDE 3 versions) that can be used to script it to some degree, e.g.:

qdbus org.kde.yakuake /yakuake/sessions addSessionTwoHorizontal

You can make use of this in an autostart script that first starts Yakuake and then runs dbus commands to manipulate it (say, add a splitted tab and remove the default non-splitted one).

Have a look at the available interfaces using qdbusviewer (for the KDE 3 version, read up on DCOP and kdcop instead).

In the future, there will be session management UI that allows setting up a default splitted session.

As for Yakuake's config file, it's ~/.kde/share/config/yakuakerc on most systems, but that is not relevant to your quest here at the moment.

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
