I was not aware of this possibility.  I think I was really expecting a
tool bar such as appears in Konsole.  Since yakuake does not have one I
I did not believe that yakuake had a context menu.  Thanks for telling
me about it.

Indeed.  I was able to select my desired colour scheme.

I changed the yabuake-start script to read as follows:

	cd ~

With the colour selection determined as described above and with this
script, yakuake now opens the way I want it, in the home directory and
with my colours.
