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.

 Feature request

 
 by helloman on: Feb 25 2009
 
Score 50%

Hi! I use Yakuake for about two years, and I'm very satisfied with it.
However, there are things I would like, that aren't there. (or at least in Yakuake 2.8.1, which is in debian testing; I hope following isn't "reinventing 2.9.4 wheel" ;)

I would appreciate Konsole-like Monitor for activity/silence feature, and coloring sessions would also be very nice.
Further, I often accidentaly close terminal, when I dont want to, so some lock session feature would be a great help - not for security, but to prevent accidental closing, or doing Ctrl-c to sesion with running simulation, and so...

Hope Yakuake gets even better!!

Hi helloman,

sadly I can't implement Monitor for Silence/Activity, because the Konsole KPart component (which Yakuake embeds to display terminals) doesn't offer interfaces to learn about activity or silence. When such interfaces get implemented in the Konsole KPart, I will implement these features.

As for coloring sessions, could you please elaborate what that means exactly?

As for preventing accidentally closing tabs, I'm considering adding a "Protect session" or "Lock session" toggle action to the the tab context menu that would result in a little lock icon being added on the tab label and the "Close Session" context menu actions and keyboard shortcuts being inactive for a session that is marked this way. I'd like some feedback whether you think this would satisfy your needs :).

So does this mean, that konsole itself doesn't use the Konsole KPart, since Monitor silence is working in Konsole?

I Just thought about coloring tab label background (or font..) like Konsole offers with "Select Tab Color".

Yop, this would be nice. Maybe as I often use many tabs and switch between them to check if something is done, I would appreciate locking of keyboard input (e.g. to prevent Ctrl-C on app running in the particular terminal).
So maybe it would work to add both "Protect session" feature which would just protect the session from Close session button , and "Lock session" which would completely lock either keyboard input to the session and closing...

Yep, the Konsole main application indeed doesn't use the KPart. It uses the internal terminal classes of the Konsole codebase directly (as does the KPart), and thus has access to lower-level interfaces that the KPart doesn't expose to Yakuake.

Coloring: I'm unsure how this fits in with Yakuake's skinning system. Filling the entire tab background with color would definitely break the aesthetics of various skins, but perhaps I can fill the bounding rectangle of the actual text label, with slightly rounded corners for a nicer appearance. I will consider implementing this -- it would help if you could file a wishlist item in the bug tracker so I won't forget. (That said, I think the KDE 4 version of Konsole no longer offers this feature, but that doesn't mean Yakuake can't.)

Regarding a session mode that prevents accidental keyboard input: I'll have to investigate a bit on whether I can pull it off (the KDE 3 version of the Konsole KPart prevented the installation of event filters on the terminal widget which made filtering keyboard events tricky, but that may have changed in the KDE 4 KPart), but I'm fairly sure there's going to be some way, and I will consider doing it. There's an existing wishlist item on preventing accidental closing in the bug tracker; you could add a comment there about the keyboard input thing if you'd like.

Not very constructive, I know, but I really wanted to say thank you :) I'm a very big console user, and it means, I'm a very big yakuake user :-) For me it's probably one of the most useful addition to KDE I've ever used, thank you, thank you, thank you :)

Hopefully during the next week. A logistical problem with the application icon (which was now added to the Oxygen theme as well in what I believe to be an outdated version; I need to talk to the artist to figure out the authorative version and if need be, sync Yakuake's copy for those who don't have Oxygen installed on their systems) has come up which needs to be resolved first.

 2.9.5 rocks!

Very nice upgrade!

The much needed new feature of preventing accidental closure is a great plus. Comments:

1. It clicked in, canceled a log out, but after tray icons were disrupted (qjackctl still running, icon gone...). Probably due a async nature of dbus messaging.

2. It would be nice if this could automatically be active if there be an active task in a session (deamed not possible in previous postings but dbus
interface should in fact enable this!).

I had been considering doing a plasmoid to do this (awaiting the upcoming dbus data-engine) but the real place is in Yakuake itself.

Hi!

1. Sorry, I didn't understand that sentence -- could you rephrase it? In particular I don't know what you mean with "It clicked in".

2. I'm not sure what D-Bus interface you're referring to, sorry. In KDE 4.3 there's slightly expanded terminal interface class for the KPart with methods to check for the existence of a foreground process, however -- future Yakuake versions may make use that to warn when closing a terminal/session with a running foreground process.

1. The dialog "You chose to ... do you want to close" comes up. I choose to NOT close and the logout is aborted. This is what I wanted. However, as I said, things are too asynchronous. Tray apps are effected. Kmail crashed.

2. Maybe the best place for a logout prevention is in KDE4's logout handling.

Hein told me of dbus commands to list processes spawned in Yakuake. I assume I can do this from QT4 dbus interface as well. If any of these are, indeed, active, then I would want to prevent closure or logout.

1. Ah, ok. I can't say I've looked into logout prevention yet, sorry. Will have to do some testing on that throughout the next dev cycle.

2. Well, I am Eike Hein ... but I still don't know what D-Bus interface you're talking about, sorry :-). Maybe there was a misunderstanding back then. I probably meant foregroundProcessId() in KDE 4.3's TerminalInterfaceV2, which is a C++ API method that can be used to check whether a given Konsole KPart instance has a foregorund process running.

 Renaming tabs in 2.9.5

Thanks for the great work!
I seem to have a small problem with 2.9.5: renaming tabs does not work as it should. I am able to rename the tab but if I leave the tab and later come back to it then it looses the name I gave it and switches to the path name instead. Has anyone noticed this behavior?

You probably have the "Show title bar contents in tab labels" option enabled. This overrides custom label texts when the KPart emits a new title. It was the same in 2.9.4.

To allow custom labels even with automatic label updating enabled there first needs to be some UI way to return to automatic updating after setting a custom label.

Just relased 2.9.6 with a fix for a rename problem. Going by the description it's a different one, but maybe you experienced it anyway.

 Notifications

I use Yakuake + irssi as an IRC client, which works very well. In KDE3, I had Yakuake beep every time someone highlighted me. In KDE4, however, Konsole doesn't support system bell anymore (bleh).

My question is, is it possible set Yakuake to make some other kind of noise when the Bell (^G) rings? It doesn't seem to follow Konsole's notification settings.

None that I can think of, sorry. The Konsole KPart also currently doesn't emit any signal I could hook up to to trigger a notification.

That's a shame. I suspect that it isn't possible to "fix" without the necessary fixes in the Konsole KPart either, correct?

Anyway, thanks for the fast answer, and thank you for the awesome work on Yakuake!

I might file a bug regarding this (for Konsole), just need to do some more research when I have the time.

Yup, the Konsole KPart needs to be modified to have a signal for the bell added. Then Yakuake can connect to that signal, and make use of it to trigger a KDE notification event. So this is a feature request to Konsole first, before it becomes a feature request to Yakuake for the second half of the job.

 Getting sound from Yakuake

Hi--

I have been using yakuake for quite some time and thanks for such a great application. It's really very handy. I have the following issue and you may hopefully help.

I use yakuake to connect my account on a server with ssh and check emails with pine. I was wondering whether yakuake could beep once a new email arrives. That would be great since I use multi-tabs and every now and then I should go back the tab to see whether I get new emails. I already got a tic and going back and forth between tabs unconsciously :-)

I am using Konsole's settings as default in yakuake.

Thank you very much for your help.

I use Yakuake 2.8 on KDE 3.5.5.

Check out the bell settings in the terminal context menu, as well as possibly in KControl. If you can get pine to issue a bell event on new mail arriving, it should work I think.

actually the bell in konsole works
you can check it with the command:

echo -ne "\a"

with yakuake it does not.


yakuake version 2.9.6
kde (and konsole) version is 4.3.4

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.
