If you got a background on your Konsole and text scrolls by, it might be difficult to see.
In that case it might be practical to quickly turn the background off, because it is not always possible to stop the text-flow with [Scroll Lock] as most laptops don't usually have it anymore.
(Some keyboards for computers dont have either.)
Another way, that is probably more versatile to use, is changing the whole profile per shortcut.
For me, either one works. Second could come in handy when going through tunnels by train.
Perhaps you find both more or less sensible
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Settings
2. Go to "Configue Shortcuts"
3. Look for something background-related
I went: 'Ohh, what a pity... Let's post a feature request!'
Offer some kind
Laptops tend to be used while traveling and the lighting can change, therefore it would be quite practical to be able to quickly change the colors in some way
Current versions of konsole support keyboard shortcuts to switch to profiles.
KDE4/konsole is no longer maintained.
With Konsole 17.12.2 on archlinux I still don't see a shortcut for toggling background or cycle through profiles. In Settings > Shortcuts, I can assign to "Edit Current Profile" and "Manage Profiles".
In the Configuration Dialog, Tab "Profiles" I can assign a keyboard shortcut to each profile. That shortcut, however, launches a new tab with that profile, and does not affect the current tab.
You are right, I misunderstood, sorry about that.

Profile shortcuts switch profile instead of opening new tab
This is a proposal to modify the profile shortcuts behaviour:
instead of opening a new tab with the corresponding profile
they now switch the profile of the current terminal display.

Revert "Profile shortcuts switch profile instead of opening new tab"
This reverts commit d689ba5403ceb998013fc99de6758976f8509e98.
I should have tested this more; this breaks a number of things as
switching doesn't execute the 'Command'. Since the next release is
close, let's just revert for now.
