Yes, yakuake continues to rock ;-)

The only thing I miss is session management so it remembers all the tabs I have to open each time... But I don't restart that often ;-) - Jan 11 2016

hmmm, so it isn't that it doesn't work, but the situation where I used it most (moving the 'divide' between quick tiled windows) is broken. So - quick tile a window do the left, quick tile another to the right, move the divide between them to give one more space than the other. I do this a lot (web development stuff...) and in kwin4 it works. With kwin5 it doesn't, the windows lose their 'quick tile' size, so they pop back to a smaller size or whatever they were before. - May 23 2015
I would absolutely love an update that makes this work on kwin in Plasma 5 as it doesn't seem to work here. And this is just such an amazing script I think it should be there by default.... - May 19 2015
This is really awesome. I have a small behavioral suggestion which could make it a bit more intuitive, esp when you do NOT want a window to follow resizing: only resize both windows in the area where they touch each other. Say that one window is full-height of the screen and the other half-height, then resizing the full-height one in the area where the other is not, should leave the other alone, un-snapping them.

This is what I intuitively expected when I tried to 'unsnap' the windows. It is easier than having to move one of the windows to unsnap.

Not sure how hard this is, though, and in any case - great script :D - Jun 27 2013

Heya,

Still using it - it works great, but any chance you can make it work a bit smoother on panels? Or integrate it in the pastebin widget... It can already handle text and images.

Hugs,

Hey,

This is a really nice plasmoid. The UI might indeed not be the very best ever and middle-click-paste doesn't seem to work but aside of those minor quirks it does its job great. I have it on my panel now next to the pastebin (which should have a URL shortening service build in, imho).

Thanks a bunch! - Jan 27 2014

This is a really useful and cool idea, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work in KWin 4.10.

I also wonder why I can't download it from the kwin script download screen in the kwin settings?!? - Feb 12 2013

I'm guessing this would be best as a daemon part of KDED... Then there wouldn't be an extra binary needed, saving memory and all that. Maybe a nice suggestion for the future ;-) - Feb 12 2013

Thanks! - Oct 27 2012
Cool. For now - where to put it? Tried the same tricks as with the maximize script but I can't find the effect anywhere... :(

Still on KWin 4.9.2 of course. - Oct 27 2012
The reason I ask is because when I force installation from the kwin script part in the settings, it installs (and mentions it is installed if I try again) but it doesn't show up as one of the scripts nor as option in the window switcher config. KWin 4.9.something btw :D - Oct 26 2012
How to install this? Is there a magical location or an import tool? - Oct 26 2012

I can't try this ATM, both for not having SC 4.9 and not feeling like compiling this myself ATM (any chance you could try and use the open-build-service (.org) to build this for, say, 28 Linux distro's :D)

But the concept is amazingly interesting... You should go, talk to Vishes, get this in KDE proper :D - Aug 20 2012

Nice... I was wondering if RTF didn't already work but after trying it I saw it was handled as .txt which makes it look less than good :D

I think it's quite cool you made this. Maybe this is worth getting in as part of KDE Libs?!? - Aug 20 2012

Well you don't have to write an app in C++ to have it as part of KDE SC - I know that there have at least been Python apps. Heck, ownCloud is quite a KDE project ;-)

You hack on this, you maintain it. It builds on KDE tech, you hang in KDE channels, talk to KDE developers - you're KDE, dude, you are :D

Just a matter of getting a git account and moving the code on KDE's servers, then see where to go from there. The KDE sysadmins will help you up and running in no-time, I guarantee :D

Just mail sysadmin@kde.org asking something like "I'm thinking about moving my stuff to be part of the KDE repo's, how can I do that?" and they will help. And suddenly Sebastian will simply have to fix things himself instead of telling you how to do it :D - Mar 05 2012

with KDE needing a decent search interface quite desperately still - maybe it's worth pursuing integration in KDE SC?!?!? :D - Feb 14 2012

you will have to explain the name to me one day...

In any case, I like the idea of Kor as plasma is eating more mem and CPU than I like and LXDE is just too damn ugly :D

Will try it once it builds again (right now broken for 12.1) and will let you know how it went.

Hey dude,

Really awesome work on this applet! It has replaced my default taskbar (there are some bugs in there) and I'm very happy with it. Maybe you should diff it with the default plasma taskbar and send a patch :D

In any case, I do have one request: can you get us the same grouping options as in the default one ("only when taskbar is full") or at least allow to disable it completely? I don't like it one bit as it slows down working with the interface :D - Nov 11 2011

really cool! I guess that due to the way Yakuake themes work it's not possible to have a fully scalable background, right?

I notice that on a different screen size yakuake repeats the background ;-)

I resized it for my own use but I guess it's a bit annoying to have to do that. Maybe you should ask the yakuake developers to allow svg themes to solve this ;-)

Either way, thaks for your work, yakuake looks a lot better now! - Apr 20 2011

Just let me repeat that I think this is awesome :D

Gimp and Inkscape work perfectly. LibreOffice and Firefox have KDE file dialogs in openSUSE anyway so no need for those with kgtk2 btw.

I just wish there was an easier way of using this (for all gtk apps, maybe with a whitelist) than editing the global files which conflicts with package management... - Apr 15 2011

It'll be difficult, huh?

Considering how good this version looks I have high expectations of you ;-)

Seriously, thanks to this theme I'm experimenting with a dark color scheme, still getting used to that (never liked it much) but maybe it'll finally work for me :D - Jan 22 2011
This is an awesome looking theme, it fits perfectly in with Oxygen and the obsidian coast color scheme...

I do have one gripe: this theme uses orange as highlight. Can't it follow the desktop color scheme? Obsidian coast uses blue as highlight and I prefer that by far over orange... ;-) - Jan 21 2011
