Re: a problem with Konsole
The problem is particular to /bin/sh. csh, tcsh, bash, and rbash all work, i.e. at installation time you picked /bin/sh as your default shell.
- Press ALT-F2
- enter 'konsole -e csh'
- konsole should now be running
- Settings | Change Profile | Shell
- Settings | Edit Current Profile
- On the general tab, set the Command field to a shell other than /bin/sh (e.g. /bin/csh). I have mine set to /usr/local/bin/bash. See /etc/shells for a list of shells installed on your system (do not alter this file).
- click on OK
- terminate konsole
Now you should be able to start and run konsole.
