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.

 Re: hidden start

Someone else and I are having this issue also with yakuake and kde4.3.

My Open After Start box isn't checked and I have even added to yakuakerc the option OpenAfterStart=false. Still does it everytime I start up kde.

There isn't any other actions or unfinished jobs that should make it happen. Just opens after start with the normal cursor. Annoying.

Yakuake opens its window when it is run again while it is already running. Most
likely you see the window opening because Yakuake is started twice after login
on your system: Once by KDE's Session Manager, which restarts all apps that
were running at logout by default (see System Settings -> Advanced -> Session
Manager), and once by your Autostart entry.

You are my favorite person of the month! I have had a script in Autostart for so long didn't know didn't need it any longer. Removed it and liquid weather from Autostart and worked like a charm and both still started fine.
Thank you, Thank you!

This is one of my most used Apps. Love Yakuake!

Another thing Gentoo Users might want working again in KDE4.3 is showing your emerges in the Tab. Not coming on by default, so in Edit Profile: Tabs tab, set the 'Tab title format:' to 'Window Title Set By Shell'. Then it will display your emerges like before.

 Reporting a bug

 
 by diego77 on: Nov 5 2009

Hi, Yakuake is really useful for me.

I'd like to report a bug:
I'm able to create a profile, and the profile is correctly persisted after quiting yakuake and then restarting.
But when I choose some profile as "Default" and quit yakuake (with the "x" button on the bottom-right part of the window), after restarting, the profile is always the yakuake's default.
It also happens that if I choose in the "Manage Profiles" window that certain profiles be showed in the "Profile Menu" (context-menu: Change Profile), when I restart yakuake, it doesn't remember my choices.
I guess is all the same bug.

Best Regards and thans a lot for this great piece of software!

Please note that the entire profile management, including all related dialogs, is actually done by Konsole's KPart component, which Yakuake only embeds. It would be best to file a bug report against Konsole (and just as with Yakuake, that's best done on http://bugs.kde.org/).

I've manged to solve one of the problems:

I post this solution here because I hope that it may be helpful for somebody.

Best Regards,
Diego.

Actually there is a file yakuakerc, and if you change the default profile there it works. I think this may be an issue with Yakuake rather than the konsole part as the konsolerc should only impact konsole. Yakuake is not saving the new default profile as requested.

Yakuake has nothing to do with profile management. The terminal area, its context menu as well as the dialogs to manage profiles and edit a profile are all provided by the Konsole KPart component, and it's the KPart's job to put whatever it needs into yakuakerc.

 Feature Request

First I have to say I love Yakuake. I use it permanently.

Not the feature request:
I'd like to have a shortcut that opens a new session in the same $PWD as the current one. I think this would be a great help sometimes.

 Takes a long time to open

 
 by joe81 on: Jan 18 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi,
first of all thanks a lot for this great app, I'm using it since at least 4 years! :-)
I have recently switched to KDE4 and I'm facing an annoying problem.
Even if the speed is set to ~0ms and all transparencies are disabled (even from the tab bar) it really takes a lot of time to react to the pressing of F12 and open the window.
Usually the delay is in the order of 3-4 seconds.
Do you have any suggestion for identifying what could be the problem?
Thanks in advance!

It's most likely the graphics driver, e.g. most versions of the proprietary nVidia graphics driver have massive performance problems with drawing bitmap fonts.

Thanks, it got a bit better with an older version of the nVidia drivers and with all desktop effects disabled

Thanks for this fabulous app. The drop-down terminal idea isn't new. But you bring it to the KDE4 desktop in a beautiful way!

It's stable, fast en looks great!
Keep up the good work for your "I-couldn't-do-without-anymore" killerapp!

F12-away...*

*or the key you assigned, I left it as F12, good choice, for me anyway.

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
