Description g111 2013-01-25 21:16:59 UTC
KDE 4.9.4 / konsole 2.9.4

I have different profiles configured in konsole. Usualy I start the konsole windows via the konsole Profiles Widget, but you can start one manually with "--profile", too. If I open a second tab (or more) in an opened konsole window, these tabs are opened with the default profile. I am used to that they open in the same profile as the konsole window was started with. This was the behaviour in former KDE versions.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. I expect that a default profile already exists with a dark grey background.
1. define a profile "color" with a colored background. 
2. Open a konsole window: "konsole --profile color".  => The window opens and should have a colored background.
3. Press the hotkey to open a new tab (Ctrl+Shift+t)
Actual Results:  
The new tab opens with the default profile with the dark grey background.

Expected Results:  
The new tab should open with the same profile "color" as the window was started with. So the background should be colored.

Maybe it is an KUbuntu Bug. The IMO wrong behaviour did occur there in KDE 4.8.x already while in debian/sid (aptosid) the behaviour was correct.

Not a bug, but intended behavior change. 

There is no longer the concept of  "per-window-default" profile. If you don't specify one specific profile, "New Tab" will also use the default profile. If you want to mimic the previous behavior, use "Clone Tab", which will use the same profile as the current tab .

For background of the change, read https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=292518#c1.

"Clone Tab", cool! It work's :)

I had already checked the hotkey configuration list for such an option but I have missed this one. (I wonder why?)

Thank you,
