Because the "remeber position" checkbutton in the preferences dialog, seems to be just a decoration, bucause it does not remember the position, even If I uncheck it after chaging the position of the Konsole window, it pops out when it wants to.

Hi, I really like the widget!

A tiny addition that would be great, would be the possibility to set a different konsole profile for the widget. Currently I can only choose "default profile", but I'd really like to use a special one for the plasmoid.

I love this widget. I had been looking for sth. like this for long.

The only thing I would improve (other than a bit more customization options) is that, at least in my case, the terminal does not automatically receive the focus when it appears after clicking on the panel icon.

Thanks for your work.

You know, that's the main thing that bothers me as well. I spent a couple hours trying to fix that at one point but for whatever reason it doesn't seem to work like it's supposed to.

Well, Just How to build it and have it install ^^
Just that would be enough ;)

Ahh, well I always just install it by right clicking on a plasma panel or desktop and clicking on add widget. You can then click on Get New Widgets and either click on download new plasma widgets and search for Konsole Widget, or install from local file and choose the zip file you can download on this page.

That should do it for the moment, the comment about tabs got me thinking but I prob won't get to it for a week or so.

Hi,
Installed it on Archlinux, kde 4.8.3, but it is not working. I can add to my panel, but gets a red X icon, and nothing happens when I click on it. I guess some dependency is missing.
I have kde python bindings installed, using python3. Anything else required?

Thanks!

The only dependency that I can recall off-hand is PYQT, take a look at https://github.com/JustinBuser/Konsole-Widget/blob/master/metadata.desktop , it might shed some light on what is needed.

I just accidentally removed a bunch of stuff trying to get rid of Akonandi and the same thing started happening to me. I fixed it by installing plasma-scriptengine-python and python-kde4

I haven't had a chance to work on this in awhile, it was my first foray into plasma widgets so I apologize if it's buggy.

It's not a binary or anything but I made a repo for the sources anyway in case anyone wants to help out:

https://github.com/JustinBuser/Konsole-Widget

Let me know if you'd like to commit or have suggestions for improvements.

Setting the configuration interface will not work, because KConfigDialog is invoked without the mandatory KConfigSkeleton instance.

Also I would suggest moving all signals/slots from C++ style to Python style.

I appreciate the comments/suggestions. Any chance you'd want to lend a hand? I'd obviously make sure you get credit for the changes, sources are here:
https://github.com/JustinBuser/Konsole-Widget if you want to make changes. I'm not sure if you can commit as a guest but if you have a github account I could add you to the commit list.

Saw your request but I wasn't certain what if any action I was supposed to take, I'm more of an SVN guy and haven't used Git much yet. In anycase I had a "pull" request from you, but it also said you had already made changes that you were ready to commit which would indicate that you had already pulled the repo. In any case I didn't want to hit the merge button that was all over the place and end up overwriting your changes or something so I just made you a Collaborator which from what I can tell means you should be able to commit as much as you'd like. Thanks for the help, I'll make sure to credit you in the appropriate places.

This is the widget I've been looking for since I left Ubuntu and AWN with its terminal applet but I'm not seeing how to resize the widget's konsole window. Am I missing something obvious? (It's very possible today, like on so many other days.)

Not sure why, but on my system (Fedora 16, 64-bit, also seen on Kubuntu 64-bit) when it is embedded in the taskbar, the icon is a question mark. I looked at the metadata file and the icon is supposed to be "utilities-terminal" which looks correct. Can you please add the option to choose an icon? That way if it doesn't get the icon right initially, I can always choose another.

I tried editing the widget file and it didn't work but I did find a workaround that does work. Go into ~/.kde.share/icons/[active icon theme] and duplicate the apps/utilities-terminal.png as terminal.png in each size. Change to another icon theme then back to your preferred theme and you should see the proper icon.

FWIW, I was able to get the proper icon to show up on kde 4.8.2 by navigating to ~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/KonsoleWidget/contents/code/main.py and changing all instances of "terminal" to "utilities-terminal".

I've been looking for something like this for a while and this works great :)

i would have tried simply renaming the icons but I was afraidit may break other uses of the icon. Thanks for the info.

Heya, thanks for this. Love it, been looking for a transparent terminal plasmoid for some time. However whenever I log in the plasmoid is never in the position I left it in before. Any fixes for this?
