Thank you for your response.  I found that if in the session manager I
select "Restore previous session" and if at the most recent log out
from that session yakuake was activated, yakuake will be started on
the next log in by the same user, and will open in my home directory.

This part of your message I do not understand.  What is the "context
menu in Yakuake"?  The only selection options I have when yakuake is
open are those in the lower right corner of the screen.  None of the
menu options which appear when the "open menu" option (the one with
the spanner/wrench) is selected allow choosing colours.

I tried the following script, called "yakuake-start", in directory

	yakuake --bg black -- fg green
	cd ~

and unchecked the "restore previous session" option described above.
On log in yakuake started but the colour options were ignored.
Furthermore, the cd command was also ignored; yakuake opened in the
directory ~/.trinity/Autostart, not in my home directory.

I also tried variations on the colour options, such as an equal sign
between the option and the argument and enclosing the arguments in
double quotes.  I also tried the command "cd /home/ken" (my home
directory) in the script which was also ignored.

Is there a way to open yakuake both where I want it and with the
colours I want?
