    Hi; I'm not sure if this chatroom is active, but I have a question. Is it possible to configure guake through the command-line? I'm using ansible to automate my desktop setup, and I'm trying to change key bindings, colours, etc, but I haven't found CLI bindings for setting options yet. Thanks

    @gsemet
    yes, i receive the notifications :) Guake has a certain level of configuration by command line, but not the level you are looking for. However, all configuration is stored into gconf, if you use the command line tool gconftool-2 or similar, you can change some settings directly and it will be applied to the running guake instance

    Thanks for the help; gconfigtool-2 worked perfectly for tweaking key-bindings / the tab bar :+1:

    Thanks for the amazing project! I use guake all the time. I have kind of weird setup - toggling guake on F1 to run fullscreen borderless terminal with screen inside :D

    Hi! On Xubuntu, can you make it so Guake will go over your panel on top of the screen even though your Windows don't cover the panel?

    hi all, could someone help me with a startup script? All I need is guake to open 6 tabs, rename them and execute a cd command on each one. I've tried a few versions I found online, but I keep getting strange behaviour like all tabs opened w/o renaming or one tab is renamed over and over again

    Hi; again not sure if this chatroom is still active but I wrote a tool (guake-cl) that updates guake's colour scheme by piping the following commands into sh

    gconftool-2 -s -t string /apps/guake/style/font/color "#D9D9E6E6F2F2"
    gconftool-2 -s -t string /apps/guake/style/background/color "#0D0D19192626"
    gconftool-2 -s -t string /apps/guake/style/font/palette "#000000000000:#B8B87A7A7A7A:#7A7AB8B87A7A:#B8B8B8B87A7A:#7A7A7A7AB8B8:#B8B87A7AB8B8:#7A7AB8B8B8B8:#D9D9D9D9D9D9:#262626262626:#DBDBBDBDBDBD:#BDBDDBDBBDBD:#DBDBDBDBBDBD:#BDBDBDBDDBDB:#DBDBBDBDDBDB:#BDBDDBDBDBDB:#FFFFFFFFFFFF"

    this stopped working recently; were there any changes to guake's configuration that would have broke this?

    Hi. this probably happens because you have updated from guake 0.8 to guake 3.x, switching to gtk3. gconf should not work anymore against guake. you can use dconf. Why is your use case and why don't you use one of the so many palettes our community has built over the years? If this is a lack of guake, you can create a feature request on our FeatHub so user can vote. Ultimately, if you can integrate it into guake itself, that could be cool
    Ryan Grannell
    @rgrannell1

    Thanks for your response. The use-case is that I change my colour scheme very often, and wanted to do it through the CLI. I cloned ziyenano/Guake-Color-Schemes, wrapped a CLI & snapcraft package around, and used it to set CLI parameters using commands like:

    // -- random dark scheme
    guake-cl -rd | sh
    // -- random light scheme
    guake-cl -rl | sh
    // -- particular scheme
    guake-cl --zenburn | sh

    The sh pipe was a workaround for Guake's use of an old config management tool instead of gsettings. I can update the module to just use snapcraft's gsettings plug now, so I can omit the sh pipe.

    I'm not sure if this is something you'd see in scope for Guake, but I'd be happy to talk about the tool if your interested. Thanks for developing such a cool terminal!

    Feel free to propose a pull request, I can integrate it into the core as a new command (guake-change-color for example) so others can use it :)
    or even a new parameter guake --change-color palete_name

    Is there a reason you guys decided to not include the gschemas.compiled in the pypi package?
