Suddenly opening a user terminal ask for root password.
Any help is welcome
Desktop Screenshoot :
Konsole configuration :
Konsole file : ~/.local/share/konsole
Profile : ~/.local/share/konsole/Profile_std_JCD.profile
Desktop file: ~/.local/share/plasma_icons/
Desktop file: /usr/share/applications
I suggest you check the profile.
For me, the profile lists the command as “/bin/csh -l”. That’s mostly because I use “csh” as my shell. It should normally be “/bin/bash”.
If, by some chance, the profile was changed so that the command was “su” then I would expect it to ask for the root password on startup. Maybe your profile was accidentally changed.

When you look at his image, there is much more rubbish there. And t ends in a call to sudo (not su). That does indeed not look like the normal /bin/bash. May be something in .profile or .bashrc?

Maybe try opening xterm to see if any other consoles are affected?
If not affected, then you can focus on configurations specific to Konsole.
If more than Konsole is affected, then you can look at configurations related to your system and User profile like .bashrc, profile.local, /etc/profile.d/, etc.
There are only two configuration files specific to Konsole and nothing else… you can search your system for occurrences of

Thank you every body for helping.
Obsessed with a bug, I forgot that launching konsole from the application launcher call at least ~/.bashrc.
Sorry for the inconvenient.

Don’t blame the “launching of konsole”. It is starting bash that calls ~/.bashrc.
