Channel Version Published

Quake-style terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology

yakuake is a terminal based on an electronic game released in 1978 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.
