Description kavol 2012-02-23 14:34:56 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

If the shell you run in konsole sets some tab or window title, you may want to use this value. However, if it doesn't, you may want to use some fallback value which is different from the common default.

Currently, there is no way to differentiate whether a title has been set by the shell or not - you have to use a format string which is common for both the cases.

It'd be nice to have the default fallback configurable so that one value like for example "(%d) %n" would be used if the title is not set, and then another value, like for example "%w" or "%tab_title" (see RFE/bug #294686), would be used once it gets set by the shell.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Expected Results:  
you can set different formatting string for tab/window title depending on whether this is set by the shell or not

This expands the point of RFE/bug #294688 - however, it doesn't replace it, as that one is about having a reasonable default if the user doesn't set own values.
