Description jan.fostier 2009-08-21 11:41:30 UTC
Version:           3.9.94 (using KDevPlatform 0.9.95) (using 4.3.00 (KDE 4.3.0), 4.3.0-2.fc11 Fedora)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release

The description says it all.  The embedded console is used, regardless whether or not external console is checked in launch profile.

I'm tempted to make this wishlist, but I guess thats a bit unfair since the option already exists in the GUI.

this has been dropped for now as it won't happen in the first release.
Comment 4 Milian Wolff 2010-09-06 19:15:46 UTC
I think this is wanted by quite some people and would be easy to bring back. Just a lineedit with a command of the users choice, by default it would be:

konsole -e %app %appcommands

and %... would be replaced by what it says.

Than users could even pick their favorite konsole app.

So why was this removed?
Comment 5 Andreas Pakulat 2010-09-23 11:38:30 UTC
There was nothing removed anywhere. The fact is simply that nobody implemented the support for running in konsole.

I'm not sure what you're suggesting with a line-edit, unless I remember incorrectly the user can already choose application executable and provide cli-arguments in the launch config. So all that would be needed is making the checkbox work properly and eventually add a dropdown to allow other terminal emulators (which may need other commandline arguments to invoke an app in them).

Also doesn't it work choosing konsole (or another terminal emulator) as application and providing the necessary cli-arguments to it?
Comment 6 Milian Wolff 2010-09-23 16:47:27 UTC
launching in external terminal is now implemented in git master (i.e. for kdev 4.2). Debugging in external terminal is not implemented yet, someone with more knowledge of the code in stty.cpp needs to fix this.
