Description David 2009-06-11 09:15:26 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

Hi. I reported this in an earlier bug (#195874), but that bug was closed (because almost everything was previously reported) and I can't find a way to re-open it. So I'm making a new bug for just this remaining point, which I can't find an existing bug for. I hope that's okay.

Konsole in KDE 4.2 does not have a configurable "seconds to detect silence" setting, and defaults to 10 seconds.

I really liked this setting in 3.5, since I could monitor very non-verbose scripts for inactivity. In 4.2 I can now only monitor verbose processes for inactivity.

Furthermore the notifcation just pops up a short time once. When monitoring inactivity you probably don't look the whole time on the screen, so it should be more noisy over a longer period.

It would be nice to have it back, at least for feature parity with 1.x series.
...at least as a hidden konsolerc option documented here:
Comment 3 semovrs 2010-11-11 09:44:11 UTC
Yes, that would definitely be nice.
Comment 4 Kurt Hindenburg 2011-10-09 14:47:44 UTC
If someone wants to code a patch, that's fine by me. 

1. Perhaps put the UI under the Configure Profile->Tab below the other 2 areas.  "Tab Monitoring"
2. I'm not sure if a temporary, non-profile settings is necessary.  Perhaps a session dbus method?

I don't see this option in Konsole 2.9.5 KDE 4.9.5? Where is it supposed to be?
Comment 7 Kurt Hindenburg 2013-01-05 14:45:32 UTC
It is under Edit Current Profile->Tabs at the bottom
