YaKuake(1) a Quake-style terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology.


YaKuake [Qt-options] [KDE-options]


YaKuake is inspired from the terminal in the Quake game: when you press a key (by default F12, but that can be changed) a terminal window slides down from the top of the screen. Press the key again, and the terminal slides back.

It is faster than a keyboard shortcut because it is already loaded into memory and as such is very useful to anyone who frequently finds themselves switching in and out of terminal sessions.


YaKuake has no application-specific options.

Generic options:

Show help about options
Show Qt specific options
Show KDE specific options
Show all options
Show author information
-v, --version
Show version information
Show license information
End of options
