Notifications don't stack by design or is it going to be fixed? Are patches wanted, or being worked in?

Myself, I find the current behavior very clumsy and unpleasant, at least it should be configurable, IMHO (just a "stack/serialize" checkbox in systemsettings->Appearance->Colibri notifications). - Feb 01 2010

I just checked konversation source, and it seems pretty straigtforward: check "Application::openUrl" at

What you say about scripted plugins may be right, I don't remember having tried other scripted plugins. It's probably a plasma bug. - Aug 26 2009

Another problem I'm seeing, and that doesn't happen with other plasmoids, is that while the configuration window is open, I can't interact with KDE desktop.

I can alt+tab to other windows and interact with them, but I can't, for example, select a window in the taskbar, or open the K menu. - Aug 26 2009

It would be nice having this plasmoid using KDE's default browser by default (and another program as an option), and not just "firefox %u".

Most people will probably want to use the same browser everywhere, so having a global browser configuration makes way more sense.

This is how konversation does it: - Aug 26 2009

It's not very elegant but I think it will do the job

Haha, same for me, I don't really know how this can be any useful but I started writing it anyway so it's done when I come up with a use case.

Maybe it could be used with a script that counts the number of emails in your inbox and estimates your "work-to-do level", or something alike. - Aug 08 2009

What's the point of limiting the BPM to 200? For example Master of Puppets is played at 220... there is no point in limiting the BPM so much. I think in Gtick you can select the maximun and the minimun BPM you want.

Also, the way to set manually the BPM is not very intuitive, and if the program is playing, the speed doesn't update until you hit enter. And again, if you click at more than 200bpm and hit enter, the program starts to play at 200 but the display shows that it's playing at the speed you have set. IIRC in Gtick there is a "tap" button making it more intuitive.

Also, in Gtick it's more confortable to set the beat and the accent with less clicks (checkboxes instead of dropdown menus)

I'm sorry If I seem to be advertising Gtick :P I was just thinking about what I don't like in destick and realized that Gtick does it right (for me) - Dec 27 2007

Very nice app, but it would be even nicer if it supported paths in system:/ format.

In ArchLinux, when you browse your home folder, you are placed under system:/home/ by default, and it's really annoying to have to change to /home/user to upload a photo - Nov 22 2007
Bind F4(open terminal) to Yakuake

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by peppelorum 26 comments

Glad you like it :)

- The "-e" switch works running anything that comes after the "-e". for example, "yakuake-F4 -e ls -la" will open a yakuake and execute "ls -la".
I have selected the script as prefered terminal emulator, and does the work (but you will only notice it if the application you are using tries to use the default kde terminal emulator. I only know two apps that use it: konqueror and kdevelop).

For example, in kdevelop I have configured aterm as default terminal, so when I want to run a project, kdevelop executes "aterm -e /bin/sh -c '/home/raziel/Projects/sc_pong/build/src/sc_pong ; echo "Press Enter to continue!";read dummy'". I've tried to switch in kdevelop to the default KDE terminal (I mean, the one configured in KDE Components, in kcontrol: yakuake-F4 in my system), and it works well (except for the fact that kdevelop echoes a "!", and bash doesn't like it and says "bash: !": event not found" (normal terminals, when running with -e, runs the specified command instead of a shell, and we run the command inside bash))

By the way, I have just realiced that doing
>> tab=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedSession`
>> dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRunCommandInSession $tab "$*"
is the same as doing
>> dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRunCommandInSession "$*"
(I mean, if we remove the $tab, yakuake selects the active tab by default)

- The `pwd` works well for me in konqueror. Konqueror, when pressing F4, doesn't give the terminal any parameter. The terminal will be executed in the actual konqueror directory (it's like if you, in an aterm, cd to a directory and then open another aterm from the first aterm, without additional parameters). Yakuake works in the same way, and that's why I have to "cd ~" if a new yakuake is run, and then force a "cd `pwd`"
I tried to print the output of `pwd` before the call to "show_yakuake "cd \"`pwd`\" && clear"", and it works well in my system. Are you sure you have tried it in konqueror, or in any other terminal? - Aug 19 2007

I think the "half-transparent crippled" bug is a bug of yakuake, I think it happens when the script does dcop calls to konqueror between the slotAddSession and the slotToggleState in yakuake.

I modified the script:
- Crippled sessions fixed (at least in my yakuake)
- Console is cleared after a local `cd`
- If we are not in a fish:// session. I use simply `pwd` to check the actual directory. It works well even in URLs like media://something (I think the old script didn't work in theese cases, but I haven't tested it.
- Simpler code to extract the fish url, user, host and port (I use only bash built-in variable modifiers)
- Sorry about my poor english
- SSH connections now support directory changes. I did it with "bash -i", but if someone knows a better way to do it, please give feedback
- SHH connections also support port change
- I don't know if this happens in the old version (I suppose it does), but if we don't "cd ~" before opening a new yakuake, all the tabs opened in that yakuake instance will be opened by default in the directory we are browsing in konqueror
- URLs with spaces solved with scaping the double quotes instead of the spaces

I think that the best way to install it is putting it in a directory under the $PATH (like /usr/bin, my ~/.bin didn't work) and set it as the KDE Component for Terminal Emulator, so I added the "-e" switch so it can execute arbitrary commands

- Make it compatible with komqueror "Minimize Memory Usage: Always" mode (yeah, I have the code, but don't feel like testing it right now :P)
