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.

 yakuake 2.9.8 plasma crash

I've noticed that yakuake 2.9.8 causes plasma crash in KDE SC 4.6 on every logout. If I disable yakuake, there is no crash. I'm using Archlinux x64.

Hm - I can't really see a direct link between Yakuake and Plasma and I also can't reproduce the problem here or have had reports from others. That said, Yakuake is an unusual application and has caused bugs in window managers and workspace shells to become visible in the past (e.g. KWin had a few hidden bugs over the years too that Yakuake uncovered).

Please file a bug against Plasma on http://bugs.kde.org/ with the backtrace of the crash.

 vertical panels + twinview

 
 by Dorsai on: Feb 27 2011
 
Score 50%

I found a bug using vertical panels with twinview (and probably xinerama too).

I got a second monitor on the right of my default monitor and the kde panel on the left of the default monitor.

When I open Yakuake (set to 100% width) it is cut of on the right side (menu button and scroll bar not visible).

When I scale it to 80% using a keyboard shortcut (alt shift arrow) and back to 100% it has the correct size and nothing is cut of.

But after I retract and reopen yakuake the size is wrong again.

Sounds like it might be related to this one, which I haven't been able to reproduce: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=265818

I wonder if it's KDE-version-specific somehow - Yakuake relies on being supplied with correct work area geometry data from kdelibs for its calculations, after all.

Have you tried to reproduce this with twinview (nvidia) or another sort of dual monitor setup?

For me this is only reproduceable when setting my desktop to dual monitor. In single monitor mode it is gone. It also started occuring after I recently bought my second display.

I am pretty sure that at least what I am seeing (do not know if it is the same problem as the one in the bug report) is related to a multi monitor setup.

Hi,

Previously on KDE 4.5.5 (fedora 14) with the taskbar at the top of the screen yakuake would drop down from below the taskbar and would raise without any corruption of the display. In 4.6 it corrupts the taskbar at the top when it drops down, and the taskbar does not immediately redraw itself when yakuake is closed/raised so can stay corrupted for a short time.

This is not a major issue as it doesn't actually break anything.

Thanks,

G.

Thanks. The issue you describe is a bug in KDE's window manager kwin (i.e. not in Yakuake) that was fixed recently. The fix should be in KDE SC 4.6.2.

Hi,

Of course if I uncheck "use window manager for animation" yakuake works perfectly.

Doh!

Thanks,

Yes, the bugfix was done in the kwin code that performs the animation when that option is enabled. Once you get 4.6.2 you can use it again.

 Feature request/or issue

Don't know exactly if this is a feature request or an issue.

When you right click on the term window on yakuake, and click "configure", you can set the option to start in the same directory of the active tab, but that doesn't reflects on yakuake behave. Every time I open a new tab, I've start on home dir.

It would be awesome to have this feature working!

I still have yakuake 2.9.7, don't know if this has changed in 2.9.8 by the way...

That this doesn't work is a bug in the Konsole KPart component, which Yakuake embeds to display terminals - the profile configuration dialog is part of the KPart as well.

See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=169058

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
