Konsole�s user interface changes

May 14, 2010, 22:32 (2 Talkback[s])

"Konsole is the app that probably almost every KDE developer uses on a daily basis, but there hasn't been much development on the user interface front during the last releases. The two brave souls Robert Knight and Kurt Hindenburg are busy triaging and fixing bugs. So to say Konsole is more maintained than developed due to a simple lack of manpower. Nonetheless some recent changes may be worth blogging about.

"Konsole does a brilliant job at being a terminal emulator but it doesn't follow user interface standards set by the majority of KDE apps very well. The remainder of this post is mostly about the menu bar and popup menus. Generally, Konsole is forced to apply to the scheme CTRL+SHIFT+Shortcut where other apps would use only CTRL+Shortcut because apps in the terminal might want to use those. Up until now Konsole had it's very own idea about shortcuts and accelerators. For example, if you wanted to open another tab, you had to do CTRL+SHIFT+N where it should actually be CTRL+SHIFT+T. There are other examples but all those should be fixed by now."
