Description Tom Warnke 2018-11-27 13:17:17 UTC

The title of an inactive tab is colored when the contents of the hidden terminal change (e.g., when running top). This alerts the user that something happened while he was away.

Before upgrading to KDE applications 18.11.80, the tab title color was reset to the default color when the tab was activated. Now, after updating to 18.11.80, the title remains colored.

1. Start top in tab 1
2. Open tab 2
3. Tab 1's title becomes colored
4. Switch to tab 1


Tab 1's title color is reset


Tab 1's title remains colored

The same behaviour when I use command line option --tabs-from-file: all tabs except the last one keep highlighted state forever.

Looks like the bug was introduced by this merge: https://cgit.kde.org/konsole.git/commit/?id=9836d430253f40054371440a45ceed578adba5fc
Comment 3 Sergey Stolyarov 2018-12-14 07:47:48 UTC
As a temporary workaround you can apply this style via (Settings → Configure Konsole → TabBar → Use user-defined stylesheet)

QTabBar::tab {
    color: black;

It will disable highlight color.
