Changelog:

Changes in 3.0.4: 24 days ago

* Much improved Wayland support on Plasma 5.

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.

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.

Could you please add session autorenaming using hostname? To see on wich hosts a sessions in the session list/tabs.

That's already supported when you edit the title settings in the terminal profile accordingly and enable the option to display the session title in the tab label in the config dialog.

Yes, but the tab title format is not often good for the tab label, e.g. %w can be very long. I guess %u@%h:%d could be enough for the tab label. But there is no way to set it only for the tab label.

Could you please add setting for label names? As it is for tab names? It is good to have window title set by shell for tab, but for label it is often too long. And it doesn't have its own setting. Only to have the same name as tab.

Sorry, but I can't - the profile settings dialog is actually owned by the Konsole KPart component Yakuake embeds, and the KPart only communicates title changes to the app hosting it, not the tab name stuff. So the KPart has to be improved first before Yakuake could do it.

Ok. Thank you for clarifying.

Hi.

I have a problem with shortcuts in yakuake. I want to disable Ctrl-Shift-- (which shrinks the font right now).
There is a setting for that in konsole's keyboard shortcuts, and I can disable it in konsole. However yakuake ignores this setting (yes, I restarted everything after the change, and after restart konsole works fine, yakuake doesn't) - I still have that shortcut working.
Is there a way to disable it?
(I use it for "undo" in joe, have been using it for years so it's really frustrating...)

It's a bug in the Konsole KPart component that Yakuake embeds. The latest development source code of Yakuake contains a workaround for it.

Hi.

I have installed yakuake from GIT (today's version), and it still doesn't work properly. Any other hints?

Report

Sho

Nope, sorry. The development code currently tries to explicitly disable some of the actions that the KPart pollutes Yakuake's "namespace" with, including the enlarge-font and shrink-font actions. If that doesn't work anymore, it's possible that the Konsole code has changed once again and foiled that attempt.

Unfortunately the Konsole KPart is an afterthought in the Konsole codebase (the Konsole main application doesn't use its own KPart, unlike better-architected apps like Okular and Kate) and full of bugs (other examples would be saving the default profile having gotten broken in KDE 4, and the "Open in same dir as current tab" profile option not working). All of these bugs have been filed in the bug tracker, but not much attention has been given to them so far.

I'm currently trying to convince the people involved that Konsole has to be reengineered to use its own KPart so that there is actual pressure to test it and make it work well, but that's a very long-term thing of course. Short term, Konsole has to be fixed up so it at least properly reads its shortcut settings again for the KPart, I guess.

is there any way to redefine the copy/paste shortcuts?

Report

jucato

Yes. But since that is handled by the embedded Konsolepart, you'll have to change them from within the Konsole application itself: Konsole -> Settings menu -> Configure Shortcuts.

Thanks Jukato. I have ^c and ^v there, but yakuake still uses the defaults (with shift). No idea why. I think it doesn't pick changes at all that I make to konsole.

Report

It might require a restart of Yakuake after changing the settings in Konsole.

Report

urlwolf

Thanks Sho, I did that and still the shortcut is the default on yakuake, not on konsole.

Report

Looks like something must have changed on the Konsole side in recent times then :(. That means the KPart shortcuts are presently unconfigurable (also affecting Dolphin, Kate and so on).

Report

It does affect kate.
These things is what make me drop kde every now and then. No fear to break every single app out there. No warning either. keep coming back because everything else is even worse.

To be honest, I don't know if I've yet encountered any of the bugs that were fixed, but the ChangeLog still looks good, Sho. I'm glad that you're still working away at it. Integrating the new notifications is a nice touch as well.

Do you know anyone who has made Konsole open in Mozilla browsers like it can in Konqueror?

It seems that many are having issues with Yakuake incorrectly detecting ambiguous shortcuts where none exist. In my case, I can't assign Ctrl-Shift-Left and Ctrl-Shift-Right to previous session and next session. There's no conflicting shortcut in KDE, and I was able to assign this shortcut to a function in Amarok as a test; it worked fine. What's going on? This minor issue is a major drag on my use of yakuake, actually, because I like to have tab navigation be consistent with my emacs tabbar mode.
