Yakuake doesn't apply settings from config on ubuntu 18.04, I looked around and found that there was a kde bug related to this so I also created a profile in .local/share/konsole and the settings are saved there but somehow yakuake doesn't apply the settings defined there.

I tried configuring it to always show on screen 2, if I change it from the UI, it moves to screen 2 but if I press F12 to hide/show it again it goes back to screen 1, but somehow the setting still shows as screen 2.

I have same settings in 2 places .config/yakuakerc and .local/share/konsole/myprofile

Here are the settings,

[Appearance]
BackgroundColor=136,138,133
BackgroundColorOpacity=5
Translucency=true

[Desktop Entry]
DefaultProfile=Leonidas.profile

[Dialogs]
FirstRun=false

  • Perhaps its not relevant but is this a fresh 18.04 install or did you upgrade from an earlier version? If an upgrade from a working version, which one? Also you could try a fresh 16.04 install if you have nothing invested in 18.04 yet. Commented May 5, 2018 at 20:07
  • This is a fresh install, I was using 16.04 but I did not upgrade from it and I don't want to go back to 16.04, everything but this one feature is fine and working for me, thanks for the reply anyway.

It seems clear to me that this is a bug. There are no fewer than 3 bug reports for this issue, going back to January 2015:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343434

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=374504

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=383555

This affects me as well, and I have just commented on the oldest bug report.

  • Yes this is so frustrating, I have been using Yakuake for so long and really don't want to switch

  1. .local/share/konsole/myprofile shoule be renamed to .local/share/konsole/my.profile (use profile as extension)
  2. There should be a [General] section in the my.profile:

    [General]
    Name=Subash
    Parent=FALLBACK/

  • myprofile was just an example, I do have profiles with .profile extension in that location with General section
