Yakuake

System Software by Sho 1027 comments

Hi,
tried yakuake. Works fine, except that if the konsole has a transparent schema and I have a different wallpaper on each desktop, then after switching desktop, yakuake shows background of the first desktop where I opened it instead of that of the current one. As a workaround I have to move yakuake a bit using alt+mouse1. Kuake doesn't have the same problem :-( - Sep 30 2005

The fact that you don't need wmctrl is more likely due to your kwin settings than the version of the toggle_script. - Sep 16 2005

Nope, it just pops up. - Sep 16 2005

First of all, it's not meant to resemble the quake game engine:-), but just a smal part of quake UI, the console. In quake, anytime in the game, if you press ~, a chat console rolls out of the top of the screen (screen-wide and about 1/4 screen high). Konsole and NoKonsole are just like that (only for shell not chat): it is a hidden instance of Konsole that you can "roll out" of the top of the screen with a single hotkey any time you need it (e.g. to do some quick filesystem operation, run a command, etc.). It's really handy. On the screenshot, it fills about half of the screen (there is one normal konsole under it and a small emacs window and kicker below).

Now, while Kuake is a standalone C++ program that "embeds" konsole (sort of a modified but also crippled konsole), nokuake simply utilizes existing KDE features (DCOP scripting) to achieve the same effect with pure unmodified Konsole, no C++. - Sep 15 2005

Right. That would be:

type=2
typerule=2

I set it initially, but somehow it didn't get into the final setup. In fact, turning it on seems to make no difference here, since I have no top panel and stuff on my notebook, so I couldn't notice.

Thanks! - Sep 15 2005

Thank you and apoptozinho for the sh-versions of the toggle script. I used perl cause I just tend to use it (almost exclusively;-)

I wonder if someone comes up with a way to work around wmctrl (I like that tool, just wonder why kwin's dcop doesn't offer the same functionality)... - Sep 15 2005
