Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9484
KDE opens a Konsole every time a program is started
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
Whenever i start an application using the KDE start button KDE will open a
Konsole first and then run the program attached to this Konsole window.
closing it closes down the application.
running applications by bringing up the "run" dialog box using ALT-F2 does
not open the Konsole windows.
This has been fixed the day after the beta was released.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 9186 ***
This bug is listed as resolved and a duplicate of bug 9186. Bug 9186 claims
that all the *.kdelnk files have the wrong Terminal= settings in it. However,
with RedHat 6.1.92, KDE seems to be ignoring that entry in the kdelnk files and
will open up a konsole no matter what.
If you go to the KDE Control Center -> Applications -> File Manager, click the
Other tab, and change the Terminal field from 'konsole' to 'tcsh -f' it will
open a program without firing up the konsole first.
Of course, this breaks the File -> Open Terminal functionality in kfm...
Bug 9186 has a bogus description - it meant the same thing, the reporter just
didn't recognize the real reason. It's fixed in rawhide.
