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.

 Embedded search

 
 by fabiomargarido on: Nov 17 2008

Hi there,

would it be possible to include Konsole's new (in KDE 4) inline search (Ctrl+Shift+F) directly in Yakuake? I think it's a killer feature in Konsole and the only thing I miss when using Yakuake.
Thanks!

Hi Fabio,

for this to be possible, the Konsole KPart component needs to offer a way to the KPart host (e.g. Yakuake, or other apps using it) to trigger the search, or at least it needs to offer it via its context menu (the terminal context menu is owned by the Konsole KPart, not Yakuake). So this is more a wish for Konsole rather than Yakuake for now. Once the required changes have been made in Konsole, Yakuake can do its part.

 Bug or feature?

 
 by samentu on: Jan 10 2009

Number 1: I have Yakuake open. When I press the key shortcuts to open a new tab or split the existing terminal it says: "Yakuake is already running! Opening window ..." and then opens the new tab or splits accordingly but it hides the whole window. This is really annoying. Is this a bug or a feature? How can I get around this?

Number 2: yakuake 2.9.4 seems to be buggy when splitting a terminal ... I get no delimiters between splitted terminals. Is there a fix somewhere for this?

Number 1: I don't really understand why, but it appears you have your shortcuts set up in some way that causes the "yakuake" executable to be re-run whenever you use them. Since Yakuake 2.9.1, Yakuake toggles its window state when the executable is re-run while the app is already running (to allow opening/closing it from a panel icon or similar).

Number 2: Yakuake 2.9.4 has a small bug that makes the splitter handles appear in the user-configured window background color (fallout from the background painting changes in that release). They're still there, but if your terminal background happens to be black, and the window background, too, they're effectively invisible. This is fixed in SVN, and the fix will be included in the next release.

Thanks for the reply.
I forgot to mention I'm using Ubuntu 8.10
Maybe it has something to do with that behaviour? Gconf related maybe?
I'll be waiting for the next release. Or better yet, I could compile it from SVN. What is the address?

Sorry, my knowledge of GConf is superficial only. I'm also not an Ubuntu user, but I haven't had any other related problem reports by Ubuntu users (nor users of any other distro), so I think this is specific to your setup.

Yakuake's SVN is at: svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/extragear/utils/yakuake

Building from SVN solved the background bug. But not the hiding of the window when I open a new tab. Oh well, I'll be digging a little bit more on this one.
Aside from that, as I understand, at the moment there is no option to save the current state when quiting yakuake (save the sessions and tabs). I will try to do that using dbus calls. There is a small problem though: I can't seem to find any function that will tell me which terminal belongs to which tab/session. Is this even possible?

Please note that I did not claim that SVN would solve your hiding problem. I still believe this is a setup issue in your desktop environment, and related to Yakuake being run again when you use the keyboard shortcuts.

Yakuake presently does not support automatic session saving and restore, as the Konsole KPart component which it embeds presently lacks some of the APIs required to implement this well, such as a way to get the current working directory out of a terminal. Implementing automatic session saving and restore is planned for the future, once the requirements are in place. I am in talks with the Konsole developer(s) about this.

And no, the D-Bus API currently does not include a call that relates terminal IDs to session IDs.

Yes, I know .... but I had hoped that building from SVN might help me on the hiding matter :)
Anyway, looking forward for the improved KPart from the Konsole guys.
Thank you very much for all your replies

Hm, well, it's certainly not from me. I'll talk to Frank (KDE-Apps.org site owner) what his opinion of something like that is. Thanks for pointing it out.

 Color scheme parity with Konso

 
 by echoes on: Feb 9 2009
 
Score 50%

what happened to the "Use same colorscheme/profile as Konsole" option in 2.9.4?

if it was purposely removed, why?

i know one can edit the color scheme/profile, but my edit is never saved, even if i save it as the default profile OR overwrite all the other profiles.

Nothing was removed from Yakuake. The context menu of the terminal area is provided by the Konsole KPart component that Yakuake embeds, and is thus found in the Konsole codebase.

The Konsole KPart and the Konsole main application now (= in KDE 4) use the same set of profiles. The profile edit options found in the KPart's context menu operate on the same profiles used by Konsole, and color scheme changes done in one will apply to the other.

This works fine here; I don't know why it doesn't work for you. But it's likely to be a Konsole problem since Yakuake is not involved at all with the terminal profile and color scheme.

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.
