There is no option in Konsole to disable link underlining. Konsole underlines not only html links but also hostnames e.g. in Weechat or Irssi. Very annoying as this bug coresponds with another: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154550. I'd like to disable link underlining completely, as i don't need it AT ALL. This is not a feature request because missing of that option considerably disturbs working with application.

By 'underlining hostnames' do you mean items of the form 'username@host' or something else?
I would prefer not to make underlining optional though I will try to fix annoyances like text wrongly underlined as a link or problems like Bug #154550
"By 'underlining hostnames' do you mean items of the form 'username@host'"
Yes. When you move mouse cursor over that hostname it gets underlined, which is really not needed.
"I would prefer not to make underlining optional though"
Why? IIRC it was optional in KDE 3.5.x. People should have a choice if they want links underlined or not.
> People should have a choice if they want links underlined or not.
I would prefer instead to make the feature unobtrusive for when people are not using it without requiring the user to turn it off/on depending on what they are doing.
IMHO it should be done by user's choice, i really do like when i can choice instead of feature that can do that simultaneously depending on users doing...
Bug still hasn't been resolved in KDE 4.1.3 nor 4.1.4.
Not resolved in KDE 4.2.
Not resolved in 4.2.3, STILL.
Same in 4.2.4.
Yes. Please fix.
Automatic underlining is a complete visual distraction when working with scrolling logs etc. - Which as a systems administrator I often do.
An option to "disable automatic URL underlining/linking" would be excellent.
Thank you for your consideration

Add option to not underline links
Possible implementation provided in attached patch (against current master: b88dfb4).
This patch adds a configuration item that allows to disable underlined links on mouse hover. The option is profile specific and defaults to the previous behaviour where links are underlined on hover.
Thanks for the patch Amand; I'll get it in for 4.7

Thank you for adding the option! Bug #154550 is really annoying. :-) Being able to just turn off the underlining is an acceptable workaround for me, as I don't feel that underlining links completely makes sense anyway, given that you must right-click and choose Open, rather than simply left-clicking as a typical underlined link would behave.
