There does not appear to be a way to save multiple tabs and re-open those tabs on the next invocation.
['Settings' Menu does not have 'Save Sessions Profile' or any corollary (that I can find)]

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
in ubuntu 11.10 (configured as gnome) 
'sudo apt-get install konsole'
open a konsole 
open three tabs (or so)
go to the 'Settings' Menu
'Save Sessions Profile' does not exist

Actual Results:  
When executing 'konsole --profile elden'
Opens with only one tab, always.

Expected Results:  
When executing 'konsole --profile elden'
Should have opened with multiple tabs (or reported an error)

1) 'Settings' 'Show Menu Bar' does not change anything (related?)
2) directory ~/.kde/share/apps/konsole/profiles/ does not exist (Should it?, Am I that behind?)
   ~/.kde/share/apps/konsole/ does exist
3) created the 'profiles' directory in 2) and copied over an old profile (elden)
     3a) executing 'konsole --profile ProfileThatDoesnotExist'
           results in 'konsole(23573) Konsole::SessionManager::loadProfile: Could not load profile from  "" ' ..... as it should (sort-of) but
     3b) executing 'konsole --profile elden' does not complain about anything (very different version) and only opens one tab (12 should have been in there)

By The way: I REALLY liked konsole when it opened mutliple tabs on start up! Thanks for any help or advice

Thanks for reporting!

The concept of 'profile' and 'session' have changed quite a lot in between KDE3 and KDE4 konsole. In short words, 'KDE4 profile' == 'KDE3 session'. 

The feature you are looking for is unfortunately still missing in KDE4 konsole. See bug 175140 comment #20 for a workaround.
