Thread: KDE Activities and mutliple kate instances

  1. #1

    Default KDE Activities and mutliple kate instances

    Hi,

    i have two KDE activities: A and B. I have a kate instance running in activity B and no kate instance running in activity A.

    Now i want to open a text file in activity A in a new kate instance via click in dolphin.

    Currently the text file is opened in the running kate instance of activity B and the activity switches to B.

    I want to have two different kate instances, one for each activity.
    Is that possible?

    Of course there's nothing to stop you from having two instances of Kate in two different activities (Alt-F2 -> Kate for
    each).

    If you want to open a new instance of Kate within Dolphin, can do so most easily by pressing F4 and typing:

    Code:
    sh-4.2$ kate -new filename.txt
    .... this is not elegant but will do what you want.

    If you want a new instance of Kate to be started _every_ time, then I believe that is possible using KWin scripts but I
    would not advise it.
