How to install Yakuake (good terminal emulator) on Centos 6.3

Posted: February 11, 2013 in Linux


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 run in terminal as root: rpm -i
    And then click on Aplications -> System Tools
