Do you still have the window called "Manage Profiles - Konsoles" I can follow this topic easily but don't quite get the result I expect. One of the changes, root shell keep reverting to "default" 8 point font size, that is a wee bit too small even with my glasses.
That's why one creates a new root profile. The default one defies change, even when done as root, but the new one works properly and can be modified.
The menus have changed, again, with KDE4.5 so here are new screen shots for the relative actions.
Now you Configure
You still get the same Manage Profiles
First time select New Profile
and create a new Root Shell 2
Profile. Later, to make changes, select the Root Shell 2
and Edit Profile
Next select the Appearance
tab and select the Color Scheme
for the background and the Font size
When done click Apply
, then OK
The menu under File
now has a New Tab
sub menu that shows the profiles. Note:
in the second screen shot, above, I only have the regular Shell
and Root Shell 2 checked
to show here.
When I select Root Shell 2
, a new tab is added, awaiting the root
Once given, One is root
, in root's environment
, and native
commands now work.
You get some trash text output. I haven't a clue why the KDE guys allow this kind of sloppiness, but in the end, the command works and the file is opened by the specified application.
