Changes in 3.0.5: 22 days ago

* Improved Wayland support.
* Yakuake's window title now always matches what's shown in its title bar.
* Fixed button icons in the 'Appearance' settings page.
* Yakuake now installs a D-Bus service file. This allows calling its D-Bus methods even when Yakuake is not running yet- it will then be started implicitly.
* Fixed a crash due to a missing bounds check in the 'sessionAtTab' D-Bus method.
* Fixed a type marshalling issue with the 'addSession' D-Bus method that caused a noisy warning when using it via qdbus.
* Yakuake now depends on KDE Frameworks 5.29 or higher.

I've manged to solve one of the problems:
editing ~/.kde/share/config/konsolerc I changed the DefaultProfile.

I post this solution here because I hope that it may be helpful for somebody.

Best Regards,
Diego.

Actually there is a file yakuakerc, and if you change the default profile there it works. I think this may be an issue with Yakuake rather than the konsole part as the konsolerc should only impact konsole. Yakuake is not saving the new default profile as requested.

Yakuake has nothing to do with profile management. The terminal area, its context menu as well as the dialogs to manage profiles and edit a profile are all provided by the Konsole KPart component, and it's the KPart's job to put whatever it needs into yakuakerc.

Someone else and I are having this issue also with yakuake and kde4.3.

My Open After Start box isn't checked and I have even added to yakuakerc the option OpenAfterStart=false. Still does it everytime I start up kde.

There isn't any other actions or unfinished jobs that should make it happen. Just opens after start with the normal cursor. Annoying.

Yakuake opens its window when it is run again while it is already running. Most
likely you see the window opening because Yakuake is started twice after login
on your system: Once by KDE's Session Manager, which restarts all apps that
were running at logout by default (see System Settings -> Advanced -> Session
Manager), and once by your Autostart entry.

You are my favorite person of the month! I have had a script in Autostart for so long didn't know didn't need it any longer. Removed it and liquid weather from Autostart and worked like a charm and both still started fine.
Thank you, Thank you!

This is one of my most used Apps. Love Yakuake!

Another thing Gentoo Users might want working again in KDE4.3 is showing your emerges in the Tab. Not coming on by default, so in Edit Profile: Tabs tab, set the 'Tab title format:' to 'Window Title Set By Shell'. Then it will display your emerges like before.

Hi guys. I'm having problem installing yakuake. I follow these steps:

tar -xjf yakuake-2.9.6.tar.bz2
cd yakuake-2.9.6/
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=</usr/bin> ../
make
sudo make install


but when I execute the cmake command I get this message - "bash: ../: Is a directory
". I'm not much familiar with the syntax of the commands, but I suppose it's something stupid. :((

The problem would be the '<' and '>' around '/usr/bin'. Also, chances are you actually want to use '/usr' there (the executable will be put into '<prefix>/bin' anyway).

yakuake is really the best console by far for me! thank you very much that you share your excellent program with us!

I had only one small improvement: yakuake would be even greater if it would start completely quiet and hidden in the background.

I start yakuake with the system. but every time I log on, I first have to click yakuake to hide. This is a litte annoyance that could be taken away if yakuake would already start hidden.

There is already an option in Configure Yakuake -> Behavior -> Open window after program start. Make shure that's unchecked.

Report

Aside from what Jucato mentions, it's also possible that you've somehow set up things in a way that causes Yakuake to be run twice at startup, e.g. once due to session management (restarting apps that were running at logout) and once due to autostart. Yakuake's window opens when it is run again while it is already running.

Beyond those two scenarios, Yakuake actually does start hidden by default (i.e. the option Jucato mentions is disabled by default).

I have to say kudos for such a great app. The command line wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for yakuake. Truly great stuff.

hi!

i usually open about 4 new buffers with yakuake every time after yakuake is started up.

usually the apps are:
- htop
- ncmpcpp
- ssh
- bash

Is it possible to create a ~/.yakuake.conf file to set up yakuake on its startup.


thank you for yakuake.

You can use Yakuake's D-Bus interface (or DCOP interface if you're using an old KDE 3 version) to script it, so you can write a script that starts Yakuake and then adds those tabs, yep.

Hi, I just downloaded the source for 2.9.6, and I can't for the life of me find any build instructions, and there's no configure script or makefile anywhere to be found.

karl@ant:/tmp/build/n$ md5sum yakuake-2.9.6.tar.bz2
d5cbb912596fd1b3a92fdb04fe46cee0 yakuake-2.9.6.tar.bz2
karl@ant:/tmp/build/n$ tar -xjf yakuake-2.9.6.tar.bz2
karl@ant:/tmp/build/n$ ls yakuake-2.9.6
AUTHORS COPYING ChangeLog Messages.sh README app/ skins/
CMakeLists.txt COPYING.DOC KDE4FAQ NEWS TODO po/
karl@ant:/tmp/build/n$ find -name "configure"
karl@ant:/tmp/build/n$ find -name "Makefile"

How exactly does one build this? Would it not be a good idea to include some instructions in the source file, either as part of the README.txt, or perhaps something named "INSTALL"?

Same as any other KDE 4 app:

tar -xjf yakuake-2.9.6.tar.bz2
cd yakuake-2.9.6/
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<where you want to install> ../
make
sudo make install

I'll think about adding an INSTALL.

Great app!
I have only one problem:
After system start, yakuake loses its transparency. To recreate it I must restart yakuake (maybe its because I using compiz)

I'd like to be able to click on links in yauake with a single-click, is this possible? This would be a nice feature as I tend to work from yakauke quite a bit.

Also is it possible to disable the titlebar? I never use this and sometimes even accidentally close yakuake when I try to close a tab.

Great program. Glad to be it is being maintained and kept in good shape.

Changes in 3.0.2:

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.
