Thread: Configuring the concole

  1. #1

    Default Configuring the concole

    I now have Suse 11.4 and I don't like the default console window under kde.
    In 11.2, I was able to set the font size, line width and no. of lines, and then make
    these changes permanent. I can't find anything now other than changing
    the font size, and it's not permanent. The console window covers the whole screen,
    but I sometimes want to drag it smaller, which I can't seem to do now.

    How do I set these things, for good?

    Hi,

    I do that via the configuration menu in the terminal window, configure the profile...

    please explain exactly how you are opening this "default console window
    under kde"..

    i ask, because what you describe (opening full screen, inability to drag
    a window to make it smaller, and NO controls other that font) sounds
    absolutely nothing like "the default console" in my KDE 4.6.0 in
    openSUSE 11.4

    I suggest that you use 'konsole'. Click:

    Settings --> Configure Profiles --> Shell --> Edit Profile --> Appearance

    For the size just drag the borders. This will be permanent, in the sense that it will open the next time with the same size it had when it was closed.

    Sorry (again), I should have writen "konsole", and I get it by clicking on the "konsole,
    terminal program" ikon which I have put at the bottom of the screen.
    Anyway, I'll see if I can do it under "profile" as suggested, when I get home.
