Description Mary Ellen Foster 2008-03-29 18:28:21 EDT
Description of problem:
When I open a konsole in the KDE live image, it comes up as 78x24 (on my small
laptop screen) or 78x40-ish (on my larger desktop screen). It would be nice if
it started at 80 characters wide -- "yum", for instance, seems to assume an
80-character screen and does some nasty wrapping if it's smaller.

There does seem to be some upstream magic in which konsole remembers its size
across invocations instead of the "old" way of setting default size -- some
discussion about this in http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=152385 and
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155603. I guess I'm mostly requesting that
the *initial* default size be 80 characters, at least.

(Wild-ass guess: is the scrollbar maybe getting in the way and eating a couple
of columns?)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(KDE live image)

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a konsole without ever having resized a konsole before
2. Konsole opens to default (or last-seen) size
Actual results:
Default size is 78 characters wide

Expected results:
Default size should be (at least) 80 characters

Fixed upstream, see external link.

We probably want to backport the upstream fix for Fedora 9, reopening.
