Thread: Dolphin terminal window (KDE 4.2)

    Default Dolphin terminal window (KDE 4.2)


    Hi.

    Is there a way to configure Dolphin to open a Konsole window in the
    current directory when you hit F4, instead of opening the terminal
    window that it does now by default?

    (Opening/launching a Konsole is what KDE 4.1 does. I'd like to keep
    that particular behaviour.)

    Erp. Make that "KDE 3.x does"

    In Dolphin go to View - Panels
    Check terminal

    This is the way it works in Dolphin

    Yes, View - Panels does the same thing is pressing F4, it opens the
    little terminal window which is part of Dolphin.

    In KDE 3.x it opens a Konsole window, which is exactly the behaviour I
    want. Is there a way to configure Dolphin in KDE 4 to do this?

    (Funnily enough, Konqueror does exactly the right thing, hasn't
    changed.)

    Hmmm, looks like it is a bug in KDE4...

    The F4 key works for me. You can also get a console button by by right
    clicking on the tool bar and choosing configure

    That's a wishlist note to encourage the devs to change the default
    behaviour. As I see it, the default behaviour is to open the attached
    mini Konsole, so that's not really a bug.

    I have Konqueror file browser in my panel and on the desktop. I avoid
    Dolphin still, but eventually I'll give in.
