Note when compiling from source
Do NOT use the Tarball packages automatically generated by GitHub on the Release pages. They won’t work because one of the main components of Guake build system, PBR, requires the full Git history to be available when building from source. Note this does not impact source distribution packages you can download from Pypi.
Build from sources instructions are described on this page of the Online Documentation. Please read this carefully before opening an issue!
Source Code available on GitHub.
