This is tip is for anyone that uses konqueror and yakuake.

Konqueror has a very nice feature: when F4 is pressed it opens konsole on the current dir.

Here's how to open a yakuake tab instead of konsole (tested with yakuake 2.8.1):

Code:

dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotAddSession

if [ $? != 0 ]; then

        # failing back to xterm
        xterm
        exit
fi

a=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedSession`
b=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedTerminal`

dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRunCommandInSession $a $b "cd `pwd`"

# this makes yakuake visible
dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotToggleState


Now just rebind the F4 key call this script.

If you're lasy just like me just rm konsole and make a symlink

Code:

ln -s this_script.sh /usr/bin/konsole

Nice post ld50. Couldn't it fall back to konsole?
Code:

#!/bin/sh
dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotAddSession || exec konsole
a=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedSession`
b=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedTerminal`

dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRunCommandInSession "$a" "$b" "cd `pwd`"

# this makes yakuake visible
dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotToggleState

I love yakuake, so this is nice, thanks :-)

I deleted konsole :P

I also found a bug, if the path has spaces it doesnt work, adding some double quotes fixes it:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotAddSession || exec xterm
a=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedSession`
b=`dcop yakuake DCOPInterface selectedTerminal`

dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotRunCommandInSession "$a" "$b" "cd \"`pwd`\""

# this makes yakuake visible
dcop yakuake DCOPInterface slotToggleState
