Konsole new features 2.13

With the KDE SC 4.13 release soon, a few new features made it into Konsole.

  • There have been quite a few requests dealing with the tabs over the years. Now, Konsole can load a stylesheet .css file that will be applied the the tabbar. This can control the size, colors, and text among a few items.
    There's a section in the Handbook which gives a few examples.
    Configure Konsole->TabBar
    Konsole Tab CSS
  • Profiles can now store the desired column and row sizes. This is for new windows only.
    Configure Current Profile->General
    Konsole Terminal Size
    Configure Konsole->General
    Konsole Terminal Size

Please provide any feedback on these or any other issues with recent Konsole versions.


This is nice. Is there any chance the user-defined style sheets will gain Get New Hot Stuff support in the future? In any case, keep up the good work.

Yes, that would be a great plan.

Are these screenshots made in OS X?

Yes, I usually have my MacOSX in front of me so it is faster to make these screenshots.

This is really great! I already *love* Konsole, but I think this will make it even better. :) Thanks to all of you Konsole devs!

Really happy for storing the desired column and row sizes. This will be a great time-saver. Thank you for your work on improving the beloved Konsole.

Any chance of different coloured tabs? Pretty please? :-)

I'll have to look into this; I noticed a few people on the forums asking for this.

Great feature. Wanted it for years.
