Konsole同時提供一個嵌入式的 KPart終端,他被整合到YakuakeDolphinKate等程式中,在使用者操作命令列時提供給使用者一個統一相似的介面。



With Konsole you can change the language to plain English (to see bugs info for example) by command:

export LANG=en_US.UTF-8


  • Switch tab: Shift + Left, Shift + Right (not like X-Chat, Firefox, Quanta, Kdevelop).
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).
  • New tab: Shift + Ctrl + T.



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.


  • To add a new profile go to Settings -> Profile Management -> New Profile
  • On the General tab, enter the new profile name and change the icon if desired.
  • If this is to be a root konsole, enter the command /bin/su -
This command will not work on any distro that uses sudo (like Ubuntu). On such distributions use:
sudo su
or just prepend all your commands that requires superuser privileges with sudo.

  • Font size can also be changed on the Appearance tab.

Editing a profile
  • On the Manage Profiles screen you can add or remove a star, which controls whether that profile is to be offered on the File menu.


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.
