Though not sure how that'll help here. ^^ My Yakuake has a weird issue: It doesn't "build up" right, meaning that after pressing F12, first there'll be half of and then like 10ms later it'll be open fully. Which is annoying...

Well in my quest to show you I have learned how to record my screen so here u can see it:


Dunno, probably someone already had the issue and I just couldn't find it. Help would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Have you tried changing the Yakuake screen dimensions in its settings to see if that makes any difference?

Have you searched for similar pre-existing Yakuake bug reports?

Does the same thing happen if you change the settings to activate Yakuake by the position of your mouse cursor?


Well... I have just found out that adding the title bar which I have removed before fixes the issue.

I guess I'll leave it there then? Still, strange. Screen dimensions and mouse cursor doesn't seem to do anything. And I cannot find others with the same issue.

What do you see in yakuakerc? Have you tried changing skin?
Here's mine:
cat ~/.config/yakuakerc

I suspect this may have something to do with applying non-default skins or system theming.

Naa, haven't done anything in the RC.

This is mine



Edit: Well, tbh I don't care too much if there's a title bar or not, so I'll just leave it there and mark this thread as solved. :wink: Thanks you guys
