Description:

I discoverd kuake at kde-apps (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11330) and It thought: "This is what I need" But it had a few bug's and there was no update since 1.5 years now. So i tried to fix it and here is the result. I hope you will like it. :)

I don't know if anyone is still interrested on this one since the release other versions of kauke. If some people are still interrestet in this one I will continue my work on this. I have also set up a SVN, if you want to make improvments on this kuake then write me an e-mail and I will give you am account for the SVN :)

Two issues I just noticed, one is if you exit bash with only one tab open kuake will crash.

Second, it doesn't save the font that you choose.

You have turned the app from something I would *like* to use to something that I can use now. The flicker problem was what kept me away and that's fixed now. Nice to see the tabs in too! I have a couple questions though:
Is there a way to define the size of the handle when kuake is minized?

Also, on xinerama quake displays across both screens, but when I maximize a window it only max's to one screen. If it isn't too much trouble, would it be possible to set which screen kuake uses?

Thank you for the great work!

No sry not for now

"Also, on xinerama quake displays across both screens, but when I maximize a window it only max's to one screen. If it isn't too much trouble, would it be possible to set which screen kuake uses?"

We will try to fix this in one of the upcoming versions

Hi,

i've just fixed the flicker problem and uploaded a new version of kuake (0.3.2) and added support for the "focus follow mouse" wm policy.
Check it here

It just flickers when I use a shortcut to open it. When I reposition kuake by changing the alignment, it works once (ie. it pops up, stays there and closes when I use the shortcut again) and then starts flickering again when pressing the same shortcut.

Too bad, I'd really like it to be on top of a kicker panel..

I know this problem. That problem is connected to your kwin settings. You can set this in kcontrol. The probelem is I have only the german version of KDE so I can't tell you exactly were to go :( Sorry

Yep! Lots of thanks from me too! I have used kuake for some time in the past, but quit using it because of bugs.. And now that I come to think of it, I wonder why I didn't miss tabbing at the time, I'd miss it today! Ah, times change I guess.. :) It's a tabbing world these days..

i've used kuake for nearly as long as its been out but -- i stopped using it for a few reasons about 3 months back and one of which was the tabbed view. i hope you get tab support soon so i can start using this baby again! thank you so much for taking the initative to get it back up and running ^_^ good luck and excellent work!
