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.

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has some sort of KDE compatibility codepath - most likely its compatibility with KDEs Sliding Popup effect is just outdated right now, not supporting the new animation duration parameter added in KDE 4.6.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.

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

One of (if not "the") best tool for for KDE. I can't live without this :)

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.

Seems to not play 100% with taskbar at top of screen in Fedora 14 KDE 4.6.

Report

Sho

That's extremely vague, could you provide details?

Report

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.

Report

Hi,

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

Doh!

Thanks,

Report

Sho

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.

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.

Report

Sho

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.

I only have one monitor unfortunately ...

Do you use a vertical panel?

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.

Changes in 3.0.4: 2 months ago

* Fixed build on Qt 5.7.

Changes in 3.0.3: 2 months ago

* Fixed Yakuake sometimes showing up in the Task Manager.
* Much improved Wayland support on Plasma 5.
* Added a security warning when using the runCommand DBus API (as recently added to KDE Konsole as well).
* Switched to a different API for getting the user home path to avoid blocking on network logins.
* The bell notification event now uses the correct Plasma 5 sound file name instead of an old KDE 4 one that may not be present.
* Fixed standard CLI arguments like --help and --version.
* Code cleanups, e.g. porting away from deprecated API.
* Updated AppStream metadata.

Changes in 3.0.2:
* Added back a description file implementing the freedesktop.org AppData specification.

Changes in 3.0.1:
* Fixed installation and integratin of hicolor application icon.

Changes in 3.0:
* Yakuake was ported to KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt 5.
* A new default skin follows the Plasma 5 Breeze design.
* Terminal focus is now preserved more reliably when closing and reopening Yakuake.
* Config changes made via the title bar menu are now synced to disk immediately, and thus preserved if Yakuake is killed instead of quit gracefully.
* The option to auto-update tab titles with the title bar contents no longer interferes with manually setting a tab title. To return to auto-updating just clear the title.
* Performance improvements in the compositor-unassisted animation code path.
* Fixed bug causing incorrect window height calculation in multi-monitor systems.
