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.

 save window spllit with/without location

 
 by tobaj on: Jul 4 2011

Probably this has been mentioned already (too many comments to go through and check) but in case if not here it goes. Yakuake seems to lack of option to save the window split and location in each terminal. No need to say why this would be an advantage.

Ideally I think it would be to have a choice like this:
> save permanently current window split:
>>> a) with locations
>>> b) without locations
or:
> always save split on exit:
>>> a) with locations
>>> b) without locations

Just realized that locations could be saved only if on related terminals the user logged in was the same as the one logged in to the system..

Hi tobaj,

please read this recent comment on the current state of session save and restore support: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=149522#c16

 Sliding popups efect in compiz

Hello, can you add support for sliding popups efect in Compiz? I enabled KDE Compatibility and support sliding popups plugin in Compiz and KDE Main Menu have nice slide animation. I'm using Compiz because Kwin is very unstable on my machine.

I'm very sorry, but I have no interest in adding code specific to Compiz to Yakuake. You're saying that Compiz already has some sort of KDE compatibility codepath - most likely its compatibility with KDEs Sliding Popup effect is just outdated right now, not supporting the new animation duration parameter added in KDE 4.6. I'd suggest talking to the Compiz devs to enhance that so Yakuake works too.

 control key to make a window

Yakuake is the best thing to ever happen to the terminal. I just started compiling a kernel and thought "Wouldn't it be nice if I could move this to a konsole type window with a control key instead of opening another tab?"

Unfortunately it's technically not possible at this time to move a terminal from Yakuake to a Konsole window.

 Split into two

You can currently add tabs that have two or four terminals. However, what I most need this feature for is if I don't want to dismiss the output of some program and open a new terminal to use the information in it. However, you cannot add a new terminal side by side next to an existing one, you need to create a new tab to do that.

It would be cool if you could start a new terminal next to the current one, side by side.

 can't get rid of skin

when I first installed, I was looking around at the different skins. I installed a minimalist one that only had tabs, and now I can't get back into settings to change it back. I've uninstalled, done apt-get purge, everything I can think of (numerous times), but when I reinstall yakuake again, its still on the only-tabs skin. I checked in the skins directory of the app files (usr/share/kde4/apps/yakuake/skins), and the only ones it lists are the default 3 it comes with - default, plastik light and plastik dark. How on earth do I get rid of the skin?

Open $KDEHOME/share/config/yakuakerc (whre $KDEHOME is $HOME/.kde or $HOME/.kde4 depending on your Linux distro) in a text editor and remove the line specifying the skin.

Oh and make sure Yakuake isn't running while you edit the config file so your change isn't overwritten.

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.
