Hello there,

Currently you can start console with arguments like --hide-menubar and --hide-tabbar. Could you please add an argument --fullscreen to start immediately in fullscreen mode?


Reproducible: Always

"fullscreen" command line option.

This patch just combines --hide-menubar and --hide-tabbar into a "fullscreen" mode.

See https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/109042/ for a patch 

Anders, thanks for the patch but I don't think that's what the original wish wanted.

Currently, the "Full screen mode" action doesn't affect the status of menubar and tabbar. So for the sake of consistency, the new "--fullscreen" cmdline option should follow the same semantic. And keeping the semantic of "fullscreen" minimal and orthogonal means better flexibility. I'm afraid some users would be unhappy to see the tabbar disappearing after entering the "fullscreen" mode.

I can understand some user want to switch the UI of konsole into mimimal and make it mimic the virtual console with just one option, but consistency is of higher priority here. You can open a new wish to ask changing the semantic of "fullscreen". Let's use that ticket to collect user opinions, and leave this one just for adding a "--fullscreen" cmdline option.

So I will vote for kurt's patch.  Just use the combination of  "--hide-menubar --hide-tabbar --fullscreen" to mimic the virtual console
