If you run "konsole from the panel/kicker, it will freeze kicker and when you exit konsole, you will get an error message about not being able to run "konsole-noxft".

here is a solution given on "débutant". the newbie french list. edit this file: /opt/kde3/share/applnk-mdk/Terminals/konsole.desktop so that it looks like the following. just adapt your locales smile

[Desktop Entry] Name=Konsole Comment=Konsole Exec=konsole %i %m Terminal=false Icon=konsole.png

Encoding=UTF-8 DocPath=konsole/index.html Terminal=0 X-KDE-StartupNotify=true GenericName=Terminal Program X-DCOP-ServiceType=Multi X-KDE-AuthorizeAction=shell access Type=Application Name[fr_FR]=Konsole Name[fr]=Konsole
