Yakuake is a drop-down terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology.

--- What's new ---

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.

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.

 bell in yakuake

 by quarkup on: Jan 23 2010
Score 50%

hi there.

I was looking to get the weechat bell command (to alert incoming messages/etc) when i found that the bell does not work inside yakuake while with konsole or gnome-terminal it works

its easy to check it, use the command:

echo -ne "\a"

My software versions is as follows:

yakuake version 2.9.6
kde (and konsole) version is 4.3.4

good job over there!
yakuake keeps being a great tool.

This is a bug in the Konsole KPart component Yakuake embeds.

Just want to say, that this is a extremly cool awesome application! For quite a while, I never asked myself, if there would be something like "awesome" just with the comfort of KDE. Keep up the good work. :)

Oh, and one idea for it, too. It would be cool to beeing able to synchronize the working directory of the current tab with the current directory of dolphin. :)

 SSH connection manager

It would be nice to have a some kind of SSH connection manager. A menu where you can add profiles (name and address) of the servers and than by simple choose and click open new tab with SSH session in it.

 multimonitor issues

 by FloPe on: Jun 15 2010
Score 50%

Hi I'm using yakuake every day. Could not imagine my desktop without it.

But since I use two monitors it is much slower than before.
When I press the Shortcut, there is a delay of 1 or 2 seconds until yakuake appears and the animation itself is slower than it used to be.

A friend who uses also more than one monitor affirmed this behaviour.

I think there is no correlation with graphic drivers because I am using radeon drivers and my firend is using nvidia drivers.

My System:
- Kubuntu 10.04
- KDE 4.5b2
- Xorg edgers

Would be great if this performance glitch could be fixed.

Hmm ... I use two monitors as well and haven't noticed any speed difference. It's true that multi-monitor positioning is computationally a bit more expensive, though - necessarily so I'm afraid, since it needs to retrieve the monitor info and compute the intersection of the screen geometry and the work area.

Hi. Thanks for the quick answer.
I investigated a little further and it seems to have something to to with the size of yakuake.

I normally use 70% width and 70% height. If I set lower values the speed increases.

My resolution on Screen 1 is 1680x1050, Screen 2 uses 1280x1024.
Desktop effects are activated.

If I deactivate the second Monitor there is no delay when opening yakuake.

 It's taking forever to open

It's taking forever to open first time after X starts, since a while back. After that it works normally.

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.
