After some dig, I found the problem is that the skin path that yakuake 
produces from KStandardDirs is wrong.
I try to print QString by using toAscii() method, but without lucky, so 
I do not know what actually it is, but I use hard code to indicate where 
the skin file is, and it is OK now.

Best wishes,
