Description:

Credit to whoever designed Soda Dark for Sublime Text 3, and the Breeze Minimal Yakuake skin for the thin layout.
Last changelog:

v3 - January 27 2019 10 months ago

* Placed zipped files inside a "sodadark-thintitlebar" subfolder. It needs that folder name to define the skin id.
* Note that even in Plasma 5.15, there is a bug where you cannot download skins using the "Get Hot New Stuff" dialog due to a Yakuake bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395012

The Best Yakuake skin out there. Thanks a lot! BTW I'm using almost _all_ of your work ;)

One glitch I experience with this skin can be seen here: https://i.imgur.com/WfJKnEb.png Only happens for the active tab. Anything to do about this? TIA!

I've randomly noticed a single white pixel before. It drove me mad trying to figure out why it was happening. You've given me a much needed clue. It looks like it's drawing the text that overflows the "tab area" onto the "titlebar". Hmmm.

What I'm thinking it is the the only part that is visible from the text that is normally shown under the tabbar (titlebar?). https://i.imgur.com/LFKG5zL.png Can we clear that text completely?

Wow, I've been using "thin titlebar" themes so long I complete forgot there was text in the TITLEbar. Welp.

Here's how the default is defined:
* https://github.com/KDE/yakuake/blob/master/data/skins/default/title.skin#L13-L19

And here's what I've been using:
* https://github.com/Zren/yakuake-sodadark-thintitlebar/blob/master/title.skin#L13-L19

I'll need to look into if there's a way to draw the titlebar completely "offscreen", or if I can set the font size to 0, or if I can draw the text as a "transparent color".

Looking at the code that loads the skin, I don't see any "disable the title" options.

I fixed it by using [Text] y=-100, I'll upload a v2 in a sec.

Cheers for the fast fix! :-D
BTW: is there a way to receive this update (and others for widgets etc) automatically?

Not really, you'll need to download it via the installer in yakuake. I think the Discover app is going to attempt to update widgets some day in the distant future though. Same day I'll learn how to setup an ubuntu PPA.

Discover would be the way to go I guess. Ubuntu PPA would not have helped me on Arch ;) Again thanks for the quick fix, keep up the awesome work you are doing for KDE!

If Get Hot New Stuff is acting up, download the zip from the KDE Store, then unzip it at:

~/.local/share/yakuake/kns_skins/

So that you have ~/.local/share/yakuake/kns_skins/sodadark-thintitlebar/tabs.skin
