Konsole opens new tab instead of new window

Hi,

I would like to start a new konsole (command "konsole", without options) window from prompt, but it starts a new tab in an existing window. Is it possible to start multiple konsole windows?

Qt: 4.8.2
KDE Development Platform: 4.8.5 (4.8.5)
Konsole: 2.8.5

that's the behavior I experience - typing Konsole opens in a new window, there's actually an option to open in a new tab

do you somehow have an alias set for Konsole ? in Konsole type:
Code: Select all
alias konosole


OpenSuse 13.2 x64, KDE 4.14.x & Plasma 5.x

No alias and the same occurs if i create a desktop icon (don't know if that goes through bash)

export |grep KONSO
declare -x KONSOLE_DBUS_SERVICE=":1.1618"
declare -x KONSOLE_DBUS_SESSION="/Sessions/1"

These were declared though, unsetting them didn't help.

Try running "konsole --new-tab" instead. You could use alias to ensure simply typing "konsole" performs this.

The only way to open a new tab in existing konsole window is "konsole --new-tab". So if you are encountering that case, then

* in shell, check what exactly "konsole" means. "type -a konsole" should do the work.
* use kmenuedit to chekc the exact command that is specified in the menu entry for "Konsole"
