Description Christian Muehlhaeuser 2018-07-13 12:36:25 UTC
While it's working correctly in Konsole, I can't configure the translucency or enable a blurred background in Yakuake at all.

Instead under "Appearance" of the profile settings, I get a warning message instead of the configuration widgets:

"Konsole was started before desktop effects were enabled. You need to restart Konsole to see transparent background."

Does the blur appear if you reboot your machine?
Comment 2 Christoph Feck 2018-07-13 16:56:06 UTC
See bug 395520.
Comment 3 Christian Muehlhaeuser 2018-07-13 17:04:00 UTC
Sorry Nate, should have added that: no, this warning message always appears, even after rebooting / starting a new session.

From Bug 395520:

Looks like Yakuake needs this done?
