Description tguen 2019-09-03 00:26:10 UTC
Running 19.08 in background mode, pressing the keyboard shortcut to open the window and immediately typing does not result in text appearing in the terminal. I have to either click the window with the mouse or alt-tab to another window and back before konsole recognizes keyboard input. This bug did not occur in 19.04.

Add ViewSplitter::showEvent()

New ViewSplitter showEvent() method override sets focus proxy before
showing the MainWindow. It is userful for background mode to keep active
terminal focused.
