Changes in 3.0.5: 1 month 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'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.

The terminal area in Yakuake is actually not part of the Yakuake codebase, but of Konsole's codebase. Yakuake embeds the Konsole KPart component. The link detection and opening behavior is implemented there. Best file a wish at http://bugs.kde.org/ :)


> 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.

This is currently not supported, sorry. There's an unsupported trick you can use, however: You can look at the title.skin file of the skin you're using, and edit the image referenced under "back_image=" in the "[Background]" group to only be 1px in height. That also makes the title bar 1px in height.


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

Thanks!

Forgot to add: A future version of the skinning system is planned to be flexible enough for skins to be able to properly support "no title bar" mode.

Cheers,

Hi,

I am using yakuake on a dual-screen setup, and have the following problem:

When I use yakuake on Screen1 in Fullscreenmode(Ctrl-shift-F11), and click with the Mouse on something on Screen2, yakuake minimizes itself.

Not sure if this is a bug or intended, but it was not what I expected.

Minimizing yakuake on Focus Lost is ok when in normal mode, but imho not in fullscreenmode.

(Hope that didn't sound to negative, yakuake is a great program and I use it daily, this is just a minor thing that bugs me.)

It's not really bug per se - it's expected behavior - but you may nonetheless be right that what you suggest would be better in practice :). I think I'll change it.

Hi--

I have been using yakuake for quite some time and thanks for such a great application. It's really very handy. I have the following issue and you may hopefully help.

I use yakuake to connect my account on a server with ssh and check emails with pine. I was wondering whether yakuake could beep once a new email arrives. That would be great since I use multi-tabs and every now and then I should go back the tab to see whether I get new emails. I already got a tic and going back and forth between tabs unconsciously :-)

I am using Konsole's settings as default in yakuake.

Thank you very much for your help.

I use Yakuake 2.8 on KDE 3.5.5.

Check out the bell settings in the terminal context menu, as well as possibly in KControl. If you can get pine to issue a bell event on new mail arriving, it should work I think.

actually the bell in konsole works
you can check it with the command:

echo -ne "\a"

with yakuake it does not.


yakuake version 2.9.6
kde (and konsole) version is 4.3.4

I use Yakuake + irssi as an IRC client, which works very well. In KDE3, I had Yakuake beep every time someone highlighted me. In KDE4, however, Konsole doesn't support system bell anymore (bleh).

My question is, is it possible set Yakuake to make some other kind of noise when the Bell (^G) rings? It doesn't seem to follow Konsole's notification settings.

Report

C

Sho

8 years ago

None that I can think of, sorry. The Konsole KPart also currently doesn't emit any signal I could hook up to to trigger a notification.

Report

Ekardnam

8 years ago

That's a shame. I suspect that it isn't possible to "fix" without the necessary fixes in the Konsole KPart either, correct?

Anyway, thanks for the fast answer, and thank you for the awesome work on Yakuake!

I might file a bug regarding this (for Konsole), just need to do some more research when I have the time.

Report

C

Sho

Yup, the Konsole KPart needs to be modified to have a signal for the bell added. Then Yakuake can connect to that signal, and make use of it to trigger a KDE notification event. So this is a feature request to Konsole first, before it becomes a feature request to Yakuake for the second half of the job.

Thanks for the great work!
I seem to have a small problem with 2.9.5: renaming tabs does not work as it should. I am able to rename the tab but if I leave the tab and later come back to it then it looses the name I gave it and switches to the path name instead. Has anyone noticed this behavior?

Report

C

Sho

You probably have the "Show title bar contents in tab labels" option enabled. This overrides custom label texts when the KPart emits a new title. It was the same in 2.9.4.

To allow custom labels even with automatic label updating enabled there first needs to be some UI way to return to automatic updating after setting a custom label.

Just relased 2.9.6 with a fix for a rename problem. Going by the description it's a different one, but maybe you experienced it anyway.

yakuake works just perfect now after upgrading to 2.9.6
Thanks for this nice app.
Keep up the good work

Very nice upgrade!

The much needed new feature of preventing accidental closure is a great plus. Comments:

1. It clicked in, canceled a log out, but after tray icons were disrupted (qjackctl still running, icon gone...). Probably due a async nature of dbus messaging.

2. It would be nice if this could automatically be active if there be an active task in a session (deamed not possible in previous postings but dbus
interface should in fact enable this!).

I had been considering doing a plasmoid to do this (awaiting the upcoming dbus data-engine) but the real place is in Yakuake itself.

Hi!

1. Sorry, I didn't understand that sentence -- could you rephrase it? In particular I don't know what you mean with "It clicked in".

2. I'm not sure what D-Bus interface you're referring to, sorry. In KDE 4.3 there's slightly expanded terminal interface class for the KPart with methods to check for the existence of a foreground process, however -- future Yakuake versions may make use that to warn when closing a terminal/session with a running foreground process.

1. The dialog "You chose to ... do you want to close" comes up. I choose to NOT close and the logout is aborted. This is what I wanted. However, as I said, things are too asynchronous. Tray apps are effected. Kmail crashed.

2. Maybe the best place for a logout prevention is in KDE4's logout handling.

Hein told me of dbus commands to list processes spawned in Yakuake. I assume I can do this from QT4 dbus interface as well. If any of these are, indeed, active, then I would want to prevent closure or logout.

1. Ah, ok. I can't say I've looked into logout prevention yet, sorry. Will have to do some testing on that throughout the next dev cycle.

2. Well, I am Eike Hein ... but I still don't know what D-Bus interface you're talking about, sorry :-). Maybe there was a misunderstanding back then. I probably meant foregroundProcessId() in KDE 4.3's TerminalInterfaceV2, which is a C++ API method that can be used to check whether a given Konsole KPart instance has a foregorund process running.

Not very constructive, I know, but I really wanted to say thank you :) I'm a very big console user, and it means, I'm a very big yakuake user :-) For me it's probably one of the most useful addition to KDE I've ever used, thank you, thank you, thank you :)

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.
