Description Stefan Becker 2008-10-03 07:58:50 EDT
Session management, i.e. restore of windows, tabs & directories, is missing in KDE4's konsole. Many KDE users (including me) have considered this as a serious drawback and therefore didn't move to Fedora 9. With the demise of Fedora 8 coming up soon, this is no longer an option.

A patch has been committed to the KDE trunk to implement session management in konsole (see URL). Please consider backporting it to Fedora 9/10's KDE 4.1.x. The patch has originally been developed for KDE 4.1.X so it should not be a problem to backport it.
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2008-10-03 08:03:23 EDT
Richard Knight (the Konsole upstream author) says he wants to do more testing against 4.1.x before recommending a backport. I CCed myself to the upstream bug, I'll track this.
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-10-03 08:04:48 EDT
Oops, he's called Robert Knight, not Richard, sorry. ;-)

RPM compiles OK and konsole finally has session management...
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2008-10-06 09:55:20 EDT
the fix is included kdebase-4.1.2-3, thanks
Comment 5 Stefan Becker 2008-10-06 23:33:55 EDT
Kevin already included the latest updates to the patch. Thanks.

Any idea when KDE 4.1.2 will be pushed to updates-testing-newkey?
Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2008-10-06 23:37:30 EDT
In the next push. But that update set includes the old kdebase-4.1.2-2.fc9 build without your patches.
Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2008-10-06 23:37:57 EDT
(The push is already underway, so it's probably too late to update it now.)
Comment 8 Stefan Becker 2008-10-07 11:02:26 EDT
KDE 4.1.2 push arrived plus I installed the latest kdebase RPMs from koji. Seems to work correctly in my initial tests.
