I use the Yakuake drop-down terminal and would love if it could save my session of tabs somehow. When I have 6-7 tabs open, all named and everything, it is a giant pita having to re-create that on every reboot.

Any ideas?


Seems like you're in luck, there's a project, yakuake-sessions, meant to provide just this:

ysess is a script that gathers as much info as possible from a running yakuake instance and saves it out in INI format. It can then take this same INI file as input and (destructively! *) reconstruct the yakuake session.

Currently, ysess will save the following information:

  • tab order
  • tab title
  • active tab
  • per-tab working directory
  • per-tab active command

It's a Python script relying on Yakuake's D-Bus interface.

  • Works just the way I imagined it :) Cheers! – mart1n May 14 '12 at 15:38
  • Does it work for Ubuntu 12.04? – MrYoshiji Aug 28 '14 at 15:28
  • does this program still work? – kjones Dec 20 '17 at 5:41
  • Update - it does still work, at least on my Kubuntu 16.10 install. Very helpful little program, thanks for sharing – kjones Dec 20 '17 at 5:59
