In this page we are trying to give some answer to problem that have been brought to our attention but which do not depend on guake iself.
gnome-panel stays on top of Guake when using Compiz
In this case you might want to do:
Open Compiz Config Settings Manager and enable Place Windows. Then, on Fixed Window Placement tab, add a line in Windows with fixed positions with
Positioned windows: (class=Guake.py) & (title=Guake!) X Positions: 0 Y Positions: 0
(Thanks to Liquen for the solution)
Problem with gconf schema
(Extraced from the README)
If you receive a message asking you if you have installed guake.schemas properly when launching guake, the first question is:
Did you install it ?
If no then you might want to do so. You can install the gconf schemas file by hand doing the following:
# gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule data/guake.schemas
For more install details, please read the INSTALL file.
If the problem persists, it means that your default sysconfdir is different from the one choosen by autotools. To fix that, you probably have to append the param `--sysconfdir=/etc' to your `./configure' call, like this:
$ ./configure --sysconfidir=/etc
Then you can restart the compilation as before
