Konsole is an X terminal emulator for the KDE platform, allowing users to have a convenient way to use the command line. Aside from providing a way to use a powerful shell, Konsole also offers features that make it easier or more pleasurable to work in the command line, such as profile management, scrollback, and color schemes, including translucency for effects.
With Konsole you can change the language to plain English (to see bugs info for example) by command:
|Quanta and Kdevelop use Alt + Left, Alt + Right. However, Shift + Direction has the advantage of being reachable with one hand on virtually all keyboard layouts, while Alt keys are sometimes only on the left of the keyboard (e.g. in Germany).|
If you regularly use a lot of tabs, you'll sometimes find it convenient to label them. Just double-click on the tab and you'll get a re-name dialogue.
|This command will not work on any distro that uses sudo (like Ubuntu). On such distributions use: |
or just prepend all your commands that requires superuser privileges with sudo.
You can change the padding between the border and the contents of Konsole (the "margin" or "gutters" between window border and text) by editing your profile file in .local/share/konsole/[name of profile] and adding:
The number after "TerminalMargin" can be edited to whatever size you prefer. After that you need to log out and then log in to show the changes.
