Make Yakuake follow Konsole color scheme in KDE 5.8+

As we can see from this bug, Konsole update broke Yakuake, a beautiful drop-down terminal emulator. As a result, Yakuake’s “Manage profile” button doesn’t work anymore. Nothing happens when you click on it. But there’s a workaround.

  • Open konsole, create a new profile by going to Settings -> Configure konsole -> Profile -> New Profile , here create a new profile
  • Open ~/.config/yakuakerc with a text editor and fill up default profile like so
  • Now we need to reinstall Yakuake (or else the change won’t reflect).

That’s all. Here’s my Konsole and Yakuake
