How to install Yakuake on Cenros 6.3

I’ve started to use Centos server and tried to find good terminal emulator. Previously I’ve used guake for Ubuntu and some port of this emulator for Mac OS X. I’ve started to find repository of yakuake and found that there are no 🙁, So, I’ve prepared short instruction how to compile Yakuake for Centos 6.3.

Firstly you have to install kde dependencies, run your gnome terminal and execute next commands:

  1. su – go to root rights
  2. yum install gcc gcc-c++ make cmake kdebase kdelibs-devel

After this download Yakuake sources from this link, I use Yakuake 2.9.8 (KDE 4; Stable). Go to terminal and execute next commands

  1. cd  to download folder
  2. tar xaf yakuake-2.9.8.tar.bz2
  3. cd yakuake-2.9.8
  4. mkdir build
  5. cd build
  6. cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/bin/yakuake/ ../
  7. make
  8. make install

And not mandatory step, but I did it, set yakuake to start automatically: System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications

And That’s all.

Cheers! 🙂
